    I DL Thunderbird & Incredimail:Win 8 won't let me install

    I am lookign for a desktop mail client that works with Win 8.
    I do not like Win 8 mail and Windows Live mail stopped working on me.
    I need an email program where i can check my hotmail, yahoo, and my ISP mail ( a POP3) in one place.
    I downloaded Thunderbird 17 and also Incredimail 8, and I cannot install either one.
    Do these programs work with Win 8?

    Windows 10 Pro (x64)

    I can say Metro Mail App works but has some limitations as noted on another thread.
    Windows Live Mail 2012 works because I use it as a work around for signing and encrypting messages.
    Outlook 2010 x64 works except for the signing and encrypting messages.
    Mozilla ThunderBird works on my Dad's Laptop that I help him upgraded to Windows 8.
    Yahoo offers their own Metro App for mail that you can try:
    Yahoo! Mail app for Windows in the Windows Store

    The last email client I can suggest is Zimbra:
    Zimbra Desktop

    I never Heard of Incredimail 8 so don't know about that.

    Try Zimbra but you have to think that if all these email clients failed then there might be something wrong with the server settings or something on the computer that is preventing the program to work.
