Re: Email Client

Hello

ProtonMail if you are using the free service you cannot use an email client either POP3 or IMAP, to enable these services you have to have their paid service.

Personally I have  used both Outlook and Thunderbird, much prefer Outlook as that is what I have used for quite a number of years, both personally and at work.

Re: Email Client

My personal thought is that while POP3 has it's uses, it's not really suited to the way many people access the same email account from multiple devices.  That's why I would normally recommend IMAP over POP3.

For an email client, it depends on what you want.  Thunderbird is very capable and it's Lightning addon (bundled with the mail client by default now) gives you the same calendar functionality that Outlook has, including the ability to sync with online calendars that use CalDav.  emClient is also a very capable client.  It's not as easy to set up as Thunderbird IMHO but then again, Outlook can be a pain as well.

Edit if you asked me to rate the different email clients I'd probably go

1. Thunderbird
2. Outlook
3. emClient
4 Mailspring

The list is not exhaustive and represents my own personal preferences.
