Windows 7: Windows Live Mail 2012 requires an update to keep using it

I converted to Thunderbird awhile ago, as I use Linux almost exclusively these days. It works fine, but Mozilla announced recently that they will stop supporting it soon. It's unclear what its fate will be at that point. We may need to be considering other desktop clients.

It will do everything that WLM will do but lots more too

Thought I would follow this but it calls for me to do the following:

To find the location of the email files in Windows Mail or Windows Live Mail, go to Tools | Options | Advanced | Maintenance | Store Folder.
In Windows Live Mail I haven't got "Tools" showing. Where have I gone wrong?

Tools is usually referring to the blue file button on the top left.

Just for anyone who missed that or if you use other systems this is the page which covers a lot of email options that may be moved to Thunderbird

Given the comment above that support for Thunderbird is going to be ending soon, are there any other third party email clients that people would recommend?

I am having no end of trouble with the instructions for Thunderbird. I now get this
Quote:
In Thunderbird, go to Tools | ImportExport | Import all messages from a directory | Also from its subdirectories.
but there is no "Tools" item that I can see?

I've been doing a little light investigating, regarding Thunderbird support, the only thing I can find regarding support is a change in the way that Thunderbird is financed and the changes to the legal framework to allow donations to support future development rather than relying on "handouts from the Firefox project".

Indeed the latest blog announces the timeline for the next release in March 2016
