Email Clients

There are a lot of email programs, most are free but some like Microsoft Outlook not free.

Outlook Express that came with Windows XP was once the most popular, probably because it came with Windows.

Windows Vista came with no email, but most computer makers installed the free Windows Mail, which was extremely buggy and Microsoft quickly followed up with the still buggy Windows Live Mail. That was followed by Windows Live Mail 2011/2012 which finally was relatively bug free.

Mozilla’s Thunderbird is a popular Outlook Express replacement as well and there are numerous other free email programs that claim to be a suitable replacement for Outlook Express.
