Windows 7: Installing 32-bit (e-mail) client / software on 64-bit Windows 7 / 10

Installing 32-bit (e-mail) client / software on 64-bit Windows 7 / 10

I need to find or trick the .msi / installer to install a 32-bit e-mail client (eM client, mailbird, etc) on Win 7 or Win 10 64-bit, I have yet to find the standalone 32-bit prg_x86.msi or .exe of any modern client I can use with pop3 / IMAP. It's needed for a 32-bit system still in use at one office, as the order handling system only sees 32-bit API it wont work with the 64-bit outlook / office that is on it.

Any tips on how to trick the installer to install the 32-bit version or where I can find a 32-bit client of some good e-mail client?

I have access to machines with 32-bit Win 7 as well as 64-bit version.
