    Mailbird Lite is not just an email client: it is a communication platform to which you can add all sorts of apps and extensions. Its worth paying for the pro version, however, as most of the best features are unavailable in the free version.

    "For those who are wonderig what comes with the paid version, I availed of the premium subscription and it let me scann and have a quick preview of the attachments of the emails. If you are using the lite version, it only allows one email account. Nevertheless, it is a simple yet user friendly client. Interestingly, I can also connet my Facebook account to it.\ "

    "I loved Mailbird so much I immediately upgraded to Mailbird Pro for business. It helps me seamlessly manage more than seven start-up accounts, set up individual signature elements, type-fonts & logos for each account and I use many of the integrations. Mailbird's customer service is excellent, too! I'm eagerly awaiting mobile versions! "

    "I have found that one of the essential keys to running a successful business to maintain frequent contact with customers. While meeting in person and phone calls still serve a role in communicating with clients, it is far more effective to use email. Therefore, I have found it to be fundamentally important to have a reliable business email service. Microsoft offers a wonderful email solutions that allow me to send and receive emails reliably and effortlessly with clients of my business. In addition, my Microsoft account features other highly useful tools, such as OneDrive that allow me to access work and client business documents wherever I am, regardless of whether I have access to my laptop computer. This makes working remotely and at client sites very easy."

Did you know that the first ever email sent was by computer engineer Ray Tomlinson in 1971 and was sent from one computer to another computer sitting right beside it? E-mails are a platform that is still being widely used today, especially in fields related to marketing. With so many seemingly better ways to reach people, many marketers and business owners wonder if emails are still worth sending to prospective clients, partners, and customers. That being said, emails have been proven time and again as the most effective method of getting your message out to your target audience.

A study held by the Radicati Group has estimated 3.7 billion email accounts in total, with a projected number of 269 billion emails sent per day. By average, a regular office worker receives 121 emails per day and sends out about 40. Also, consumers are often found seeking out email marketing campaigns from their favorite brands and local stores. Nielsen Holdings have reported that 28% of US online shoppers subscribe to store or product emails in order to stay informed and a study from Loyalty 360 states that 59% of US moms would sign up for email updates from brands if rewards were offered.

    Mozilla Thunderbird has plenty of features and a lot of extensions that are available for free. It has unique functions such as creating links for files that are too big to send as attachments or the ability to read RSS news feeds alongside your emails

    "Great e-mail client, it's fast and flexible. Customizable but not so feature-laden that it's intimidating to use. One a little time spent around the interface teaches you how to use it and from then on it's up to you to decide to how to set it up for your specific needs. A small program too, doesn't take it a lot of space, but packs quite a punch despite this."
