A desktop email client enables managing your email in a fully ntegrated way with other desktop programs. Most desktop email programs also build up a local search index, which makes handling large amounts of email easier.

Desktop email clients also allow advanced features such as identity management, PGP encryption, auto-filing, delayed emails and moving emails between accounts.



Depending on your operating system, we recommend using the following applications:

Linux: Thunderbird, Evolution, Sylpheed

MacOSX: Mac Mail, Thunderbird, Postbox

Windows: Thunderbird, Outlook
