Best Email Client for Windows 10: Top Choices for Your Desktop

Why Do You Need a Desktop Email Client?

  • Productive email management. You can manage multiple email accounts all within one app — send, receive, draft, and organize your messages easily with sophisticated filters, tagging capabilities, and safety features. And do all your work in one space.
  • Features for inbox decluttering. You can use the filtering and sorting options in desktop email clients to get rid of the inbox clutter by filing everything in the appropriate places. And, you can snooze anything that’s not urgent and deal with the most important tasks first.
  • Offline access to email. All desktop email clients have the option to access mail offline, which is not always possible for webmail or cloud-based email clients. So, even if you lose your internet connection, you can still see and sort through your messages.
  • Storage for email backup. With desktop clients, email storage is limited by your computer’s capacity and can be safely backed up on your device.
  • Sophisticated integrations. You can integrate calendars, project and task management, communication, and file sharing into your email experience.

How to Choose a Windows Email Client

  • User experience — how convenient the app is to set up and use and how user-friendly the interface is.
  • Features — what features the app can offer, aside from the basic ability to send and receive emails, and how well they work.
  • Integrations — how you can enhance email management with third-party apps.
  • Security — what security measures the app offers.
  • Support — whether you get technical support of any kind beside FAQ and Help Center articles.
  • Price — monthly or annual cost so you can decide if it fits your budget.
