Communication forms the base of the world where we live today. Not only us, but every single living being communicates in one way or another daily. Can you think of a way in which we can survive without communicating at all? Nope? That is the significance of communication.
Okay, this isn't your school, so I'll get to the point. E-mailing has always been a great way to communicate in the world of computers. Though it is not as versatile and favorable as other chatting platforms, many companies, Government organizations, Banks, and other institutions also prefer E-mailing over any other communicating platform. E-mails are usually sent for professional, formal approaches and usually, users do not prefer them for casual chatting since there are better options for that.
Best Email client for Windows 11
E-mailing is one of the most popular and widely used communication platforms for all devices. So, which app do you use for E-mailing? Not sure yet? No problem, we have prepared a list that consists of the best E-mail apps for Windows 11 and we are absolutely sure that one of these apps is going to be your personal favorite, soon enough. The list is not based on any ranking, because all of these apps have their own benefits and drawbacks.
What's better than a good e-mailing app for sending e-mails? No idea? A good e-mailing app that is solely optimized for your Windows 11 device, is perfectly compatible with it and provides a smooth, user-friendly experience. Nothing can beat such an app...right? Windows Mail and Calendar is a two-in-one app that lets you use an E-mailing app, as well as a calendar too. Though this app is always overshadowed by other e-mailing apps, it has its own set of great and useful features which can make you fall for the Windows Mail and Calendar app. It allows you to tag and mention different e-mail addresses. It means that while sending an e-mail to someone, you can tag or mention another, 3rd person in the same e-mail...surprising, isn't it? Windows Mail and Calendar app even let you pin any inbox of your choice to the Start menu. This can be really helpful if you want to access any important inbox as quickly as possible. You can also connect to different inboxes together. One, of its most amusing features, is that it offers an option to merge your different E-mail accounts, whether they are created in Yahoo, G-mail, or any other platform. So, give it a shot because it does not even have to be downloaded. You can find the Windows Mail and Calendar app pre-installed on your Windows 11 computer.
Search for Outlook on your Windows 11 computer and you will find it there until and unless you have not uninstalled it. Outlook is probably the best and most favored E-mailing app for Windows and it definitely deserves that title for many reasons. Outlook is a great, free e-mailing app and it works charmingly well for personal use. It can even be used by small businesses but if you want any higher-end features, you can opt for its paid version, Outlook 365 after purchasing Microsoft 365. With the free version, you can use the e-mailing as well as calendar features, 15 GB of storage space in the mailbox, and 5 GB of storage space on OneDrive too...isn't it great to have these many things for free? But that's not all; you will also get a web version of premium Office applications such as PowerPoint, Excel, and Word with the free version of Outlook itself. Now for the premium version, everything that is included in the free version is just made more premium along with the ability to protect OneDrive from ransomware. So, this app should be tried at least once on your Windows 11 computer and there's a high possibility that you may end up liking it a lot.
You can access Gmail by visiting gmail.com in any of your Windows 11 browsers.
Does Gmail need an introduction? Nope and that's because we all know how famous and capable this e-mail client really is. It is easy to use, has a simple and user-friendly interface, and above all, great usability. Gmail is a free-to-use app that has been around for the longest and is preferred by the majority of users. It does not have anything extraordinary or something that makes it unique. Then why is it so much good? That's because it is the best at whatever it does. Gmail simply lets you send and receive e-mails with a few little extra features. The best part about Gmail is that it is freely customizable, thanks to its compatibility with other third-party apps. All in all, Gmail is hands down a great choice for e-mails and has no major drawbacks. Hence, you must try it for once.
Mozilla's Thunderbird is a free E-mailing app that can be used on Windows 11 and has many amazing features which can't be overlooked. The interface is quite simple and user-friendly but, it does not look modern at all. It gives a nostalgic, old-school vibe and we would recommend this to every user who wants this old-school feeling while using this app. For others, it would be better to customize the app however you like it to be. Upon suitable customization, this app has everything you'll need for a great experience. Being an open-source network, Thunderbird provides a variety of features such as a quick filter toolbar, message archive, search tools, smart folders, etc. Thunderbird is really good at managing and arranging add-ons, large files, and junk mail too. With this app, you have no need to worry about your files and privacy since they are always secure against phishing.
Postbox is a one-time investment app that provides you countless services and features for a lifetime, even over multiple devices with a single license. If you are not so sure about purchasing the app's license directly, you can try it for free for 30 days! Then, it will be easier for you to make your final decision. Postbox pledges to protect your data and e-mails from any malice, tracking, malware, or anything that can affect you or your privacy in a negative manner. It can even categorize useful and junk e-mails separately. This will be a great help for you as you'll then be able to delete those unwanted, junk e-mails easily. Postbox also gives around 70 ready-to-use, professional e-mail templates which will provide a different look to your e-mails and you will have a unique impression on everyone who receives them. Postbox has a very user-friendly interface that can please you in more than one way. Postbox also has many customization abilities such as editing themes, customizing display names, applying keyboard shortcuts, scaling, and editing images. But the fun part is...all of these features are far from being the full potential of the app because when you will use the app itself, your amazement would be on another level. So yeah, this e-mailing app makes you pay for it but, if you consider the features and usability of Postbox, the amount seems to be fair enough.
Missive means business. Like, this is one of the most 'professionally operated' e-mailing apps on the list. This app is specially designed for work and if you are a working professional, this one is going to be a charm for you. This platform focuses mainly upon the productivity it can give to its users with extraordinary e-mailing features and threadable group chats. The missive has a free plan which can be used for as long as you want to; a Starter plan which has more features and capabilities than the free version and a Productive plan which can be something really astounding. Want to know an interesting deal? Well, if you buy any paid plans and are not satisfied with the service provided to you, the amount is easily refundable within the first 30 days of purchase...too good, isn't it? If you use Missive for an organization, you get 3 accounts at most while for an individual user, you get 2 personal accounts and 2 shared social media accounts. This free version can be used for as long as you wish to but, there's a catch. The free version of the app can only retrieve a history of 15 days at maximum. This means any e-mail, file, or chats will not be stored for more than 15 days. So, this can be a serious problem for many users. Furthermore, there are many features that can be used in both the free and paid versions such as Missive Live chat, calendars, collaborative writing, etc. With both versions, you also get a separate space for social media and SMS too. So, make sure to try the app once and see for yourself if this is the one that suits you the most.
eM Client is basically an app that won't provide much liberty with its free version but if you are ready to pay, it can do wonders for you. This might sound a bit harsh but yeah, you get the most basic functions with the free version like e-mailing, Calendar and that's pretty much it. But hey, eM Client is one of the most popular e-mail apps on Windows. Why? Because of the great offerings from the paid version. This app has a very productive approach along with some very lively features. The pro version of eM Client lets you create and use unlimited accounts for individuals as well as organizations. It handles everything from e-mails and calendars to commercials use and comes with VIP support for a year. The most brilliant pro features include options such as ‘Snooze e-mail’, 'Send e-mail later’ and ‘Watch for reply’. eM Client pro even lets you take notes for quickly jotting down anything and comes in really handy. You can even translate an incoming or outgoing e-mail from one language to another. Both of the paid versions, eM Client pro and the Company eM Client support 10 devices and 50 devices maximum, respectively. If the users want to exceed their maximum limit in any of these versions, they can contact the sales department and they might help their users. Pretty considerate...right?
An E-mailing app that is really serious for anything it does. It is a 'pay to use app which has two different plans, a personal plan, and a business plan. Both of these plans have different costs and...yeah they are heavy on your pockets. But being expensive does not mean that they are not worth your money. Mailbird offers many things which you may not get in any other e-mailing app for Windows 11. The user interface is probably one of the bests on the list. It has the most fascinating feature, ‘Speed Reader’ which scans e-mails within mere seconds, along with a feature to snooze the e-mails. Mailbird believes in unity, a flock of birds, just like its name...got the joke? Right? Forget it! The point is, it lets you gather all of your inboxes within a single place so that you don't have to wander here and there for anything. You can even merge your contacts and SMS from all of your e-mail accounts too. It gives you the liberty to even integrate third-party apps such as WhatsApp, Facebook (now Meta), Google Calendar, etc. Mailbird also has some features for anyone who is signed in to LinkedIn. So basically, Mailbird is an E-mailing app for Windows while being more than that.
Spike is a newer e-mailing app for Windows which is not an e-mailing app solely. Confused? Wondering what does it mean? Spike understands the fact that e-mails do not necessarily need to be formal every time. Keeping in mind that e-mails can be fun too, Spike lets you send e-mails in form of messages. It actually feels like sending a message whenever you send an e-mail with Spike. The e-mails on Spike are more like a conversation between two users and those boring, formal e-mails can be replaced by them. It also has several essential features which are usually seen in chatting apps such as the option to unsend e-mails, snooze e-mails or save them to send them later. Besides, it is regarded by many users as the best bulk email sender. And this part is really interesting...Spike also has a 'read indicator' just like WhatsApp and Instagram which lets you know if someone has seen your e-mail or not, on the other side of the screen. These features when combined with the clean, easy-to-use interface, really give the users an ultimate experience. Make sure to try this app for understanding all of its merits.
Let's be clear, Newton Mail costs $50 per year, which is a huge amount for an e-mailing app, right? But, it isn't just some random e-mail app. Newton Mail, in fact, is probably the most powerful and feature-loaded e-mailing app for Windows. Newton lets you merge inboxes from almost all the e-mailing apps that you can think of like G-mail, Yahoo, Outlook, etc. It even lets you integrate many apps such as EverNote, OneNote, and Trello. You get the option to snooze e-mails and use the calendar for figuring out your working days too. Though these features are good enough, the app is much better than this and definitely deserves to be tried at least once. So, do you need to spend $50 on it? Not really, you can just try it for free for 14 days and see for yourself if this app is worth paying for or not.
