Email Client


The email has been around for decades now. The Litmus Email Analysis says that in December 2014, alone, around 1.16 billion emails were opened using an email client (including desktop and mobile).

Are you wondering what an email client is?

Basically, an email client is an application that allows you to manage your inbox in terms of sending, receiving, and organizing messages that come directly from your desktop or mobile.

It is called a client because email systems are based on client-server architecture. Mails from many different clients are sent to a central server. From there, the mail is sent to its intended destination.

Desktop email clients allow you to manage information exchanged without your having to log in. Some examples of desktop email clients are Microsoft Outlook, Thunderbird, etc. A major disadvantage of this type is it feels quite outdated and cluttered.

Newer desktop email clients like Inky and Mailbird are gaining popularity since they offer several advantages over the older ones, such as faster speed, customizable modern design, uncluttered interface, and many other superb features.

Users do have their favorite email clients. Some of the most popular ones are:

Windows Outlook – This has been around for quite some time now, since the 1990s. Some people believe it is so popular only because it is provided along with the software and the users are too lazy to change to another one.

Apple Mac – This is called Mail.app, or Mail. It collects all your mail from different email servers and across the web at one place.

Thunderbird – This one is offered by Mozilla, the company that brought the browser Firefox out. This one is a favorite of many who say that Thunderbird, along with its extension, Lightning, is an excellent email client.

Gmail – This was a surefire hit by Google. This is an extremely popular email client. While most features it offers are the usual ones, a relatively unique one is the threaded conversation.
