    I use Thunderbird, started using it a few years ago. I also use MailWasher Pro (yes, I paid for it). MailWasher checks all my email accounts and I can weed out what I don't want before downloading from the server.

    I've been using eMClient for a couple of years now, and I find that it suits my needs. And I'm pushing mid-60 years old, so it's not as if I "grew up" with PCs.
    (as a side note, my 94 year-old Father has recently replaced his old desktop PC with a new HP Laptop running Win 8.1 .... so there is hope for us 'old' folk yet .. )

    Wow, David, thanks and I think the same of you. Not often can a person go into geek forums and not get egged.

    LOL Atom, I guess there is hope for us yet. That is encouraging.

    I understand now about Windows live mail now. If eM Client fails me I will try that out next.

    I do wish Thunderbird kept working for me.

    I am amazed at the ages here and it's nice to see.

    Thanks everyone.......much appreciated.

I find the Modern Mail app to be easier to use, especially that it works in conjunction with the Calendar, People, Photos, and other apps which is using the system's efficiency as a whole. It's also walled-gardened so therefore safer to use. I get popup notices even if the app is closed. Also when not in use it goes into a dormant state using less resources, which is particularly handy on a pad, laptop, or hybrid.

    If I remember correctly WLM uses POP rather than IMAP that the Modern Mail app uses, which to me is a much more sophisticated technology giving users more options.
    I use both actually - I like the pop-ups on the mail app (and the live tile and lock screen status) but find composing mails and especially searching easier in WLM. I also far prefer WLM to Outlook (or the mail app) as you can get a consolidated inbox if you have more than one account.

    IMAP can be used on any of these clients.

    Ok. Fair enough. There are pros and cons to every app. I just didn't think it was fair to claim it as fact. Personally it's a stick in my craw that the Modern apps weren't given a fair chance. Admittedly they were crap when first released due to MS's mistake of releasing the whole system too soon IMO, but gradually through time and updates they have become great apps. I can't stress enough the functionality of efficiency that they work in conjunction of one another.

    It's good that one can have a combined inbox if that's what one prefers. Personally I keep my business account separate from personal. And there are more options of fonts, colors, stationary, etc., but MS is attempting to keep the system footprint small.

    Not so sure on the IMAP thing. Question is, is it being used by all clients?

    Peace, Bro.

    Thanks for that.

    And may I add that after adding any account to be sure to go in the apps settings to configure permissions.
