The Best Alternatives to Mozilla Thunderbird for Windows in 2018

Posted by Christin on June 19, 2018

Thunderbird—created by Mozilla, the organization behind Firefox—has been a popular email client with a loyal following over the years, despite threats of halting updates and further development of the application. While Mozilla no longer supports Thunderbird, it still remains a powerful app with a robust library of add-on features that allow for full customization of your email experience. While some may enjoy the added functionalities, others may find this difficult and complicated to set up.

For these reasons, you may be considering alternatives to Mozilla Thunderbird. Whether you’re looking for an entirely new email client or switching from Thunderbird, we’ve compiled a review of five Windows options below to evaluate instead of Thunderbird.

The Best Way to Read MSN Hotmail on Your Desktop

Posted by Christin on August 1, 2017

In some cases, webmail clients can be a great way to receive, read, and respond to email. Gmail, for instance, is an extremely accessible and intuitive webmail app. In addition to its ease of use, Gmail is also 100% free (with 15 free gigabytes of storage per account, no less), making it a go-to solution for personal email and business email alike. Microsoft’s Outlook.com (formerly known as MSN Hotmail) is another example of a popular webmail client. But what happens when you have multiple Gmail or MSN Outlook accounts for different purposes? Google does allow you to stay logged in on multiple accounts at once, and switching back and forth between those accounts is as simple as clicking your profile photo icon in the upper right-hand corner of the screen and selecting a different email inbox. Still, toggling between inboxes takes time. Worse, if you need to stay up to date with each inbox at all times, there is no easy answer—at least not while you are using Gmail or Outlook.com in their standard webmail formats. After all, the last thing you want is to have three or four different webmail tabs constantly open just to monitor your email. A Better Way to Monitor Your Webmail Accounts If you have multiple webmail accounts and are tired of switching between them 30 times a day or leaving half a dozen email tabs open on your browser, it might be time to make the switch to a desktop email client. A desktop…

How To Set Up A Desktop Email Client

Posted by Christin on March 8, 2017

Did you know? The first email was sent over 40 years ago—in 1972, to be exact—by a man named Ray Tomlinson, who is often credited as the inventor of email. Since then, email has become ubiquitous in communication. Every day, more emails are sent and received than the previous day. Its place in our society is the norm, to the point where if you don’t have email, others might find that odd. At first, the usability of email was limited. Some early systems required both users to be logged into the same host to send a message. Later iterations only allowed communication between the same email client. But as the internet has advanced, so has email. Now, you have a choice on what email client you would like to use… and there’s a lot to choose from! The first decision you have to make is whether or not you should use a desktop email client or webmail/cloud-based email. Both systems have their advantages, so it’s mainly just a personal preference. We’ll outline the pros and cons of each in the next section. Desktop Email Client vs. Webmail: Which Should You Choose? To start, let’s look at desktop email clients. Desktop email clients are applications that enable you to manage your inbox by sending, receiving, and organizing messages directly from your desktop or mobile device. A few names that might ring a bell include Microsoft Outlook, Thunderbird, and, of course, Mailbird. Desktop email clients are best for people with multiple email…

Effective Inbox Management: Are You Using the Right Email Tools?

Posted by Christin on February 22, 2017

How much time do you spend reading, sorting, and answering emails every day? How many times throughout the day do you have to stop whatever else you are doing to manage email in your work or personal inboxes? For most of us, bulk email is a fact of life.

Having the right email tools to manage your inboxes, and keep track of your email can make all the difference in the world.

You have ways to avoid email-related distractions throughout the day—without missing important messages, of course.
