Windows 7: looking for a good email client

looking for a good email client

I am looking for the best free email client. Have tried gmail, hotmail, and a couple of others even Thunderbird and can't get it to work right.I am thinking about changing from MS Office Pro 7 as I don't like the new ribbon bar, I like the older style better. Anyway to one of the free offices but they don't have an email client.

I have searched for a decent free email client for a few years now, and can't find one that suits my needs. Even paid clients don't seem to match up to my requirements. Some come close, but there's always something that breaks the deal. I currently use PocoMail, but it's no longer in development and wasn't made for anything newer than XP, though it does work fine on Windows 7. Eventually I will need another client, but have no idea what could replace Poco.

As for the Office 7 ribbon, I didn't like it at first but once I was basically forced to use it, it started to make sense and become easy to use. I now find it comfortable and in many ways better. Have you given it a fair chance?

I am just not comfortable with it. Hard to find preferences, etc.

I use AOL since years and never had a problem. But don.t install their whole thing. Put aol.com into IE and get started from there - it's a lot neater.

iOS users: There is one called Mailbox. It's free on the App Store, but there is a wait list. I would recommend it to anyone, but it only works for Gmail.

PC users: You could try Windows Live Mail, but honestly I tried it and got errors every about 1 minute.

Below I found 2 links of some email clients, you should check it out:

I use Windows Live Mail 2011, as long as you are not going to create group contacts (there is a bug in sending group contacts in WLM 2012, you can try that one
WLM is inside Windows Live Essentials, before it installs it will ask you what you would like to install, just pick Windows Live mail
