Windows 7: Just a Question - What email client(s) are you using on W7

Just a Question - What email client(s) are you using on W7

Hi everyone
just a question -- as there is no email client included with W7 what are you using.

I have no problem with Microsoft Outlook as I've got Office installed but what are other people using.

I actually don't mind Outlook myself -- I'm not a fan of "Web based" email clients and I really don't like "Windows Live".

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

I used to use Thunderbird myself. Now I use Windows Live Mail. Two things I really like about this program is that I can have multiple email accounts set up, for me it's 2 x Google Accounts and 1 x Microsoft Live Account, and one BIG plus is the easy way to backup all your messages if you ever need to reinstall the OS! Done that a few times!!

Webmail all the time... Why would you want to store all emails on your hard drive? Let them be stored on someone elses hard drive. Just my $0.02.

Windows 8.1 Pro RTM x64

Windows Live Mail for me. I thought that I would not like it at first, as I was used to using Windows Mail in Vista, but the layout in WLM is a great improvement as it means that I can read my E-Mails without having to do as much scrolling.

Windows 10 Pro x64 x3, Ubuntu

I use Thunderbird with multiple email account across multiple Operating systems (my Thunderbird profile is on my data drive and one edit when re-installing an OS brings back everything.). Basically I get an identical Thunderbird view including all my add-ons and rules etc from three current windows installs on this machine.

I did use Live mail for my LIve address but since the changes in January this too is now in Thunberbird

I was just curious what the email client of choice is with Win7 since it does not come with one. I am leaning toward Thunderbird. I have to have the ability to have two email addresses. From my understanding if you use Windows Live Mail, you must actually go into the Control Panel and change...
