Best Email Client For Gmail
Posted 16 October 2006 - 02:02 AM
I want to use a different email client but I don't know of any others.
Do you guys know of any email clients that work awesome with gmail?
The only email accounts I have are gmail so of course it would be optimal that I started using an email client that worked well with it.

Gmail's own webmail interface is quite good and easy to use. I tend only to use the web interface because I get a lot of junkmail / spam and I don't want to have to download these non-sense emails and waste my internet bandwith. I am currently using Thunderbird for another non-Gmail email account. Thunderbird can easily integrate with Gmail (it has a special option for Gmail accounts), so it should be one of the options you are considering.
I have actually found Gmail's spam filters to be quite good. However I guess some email programs may download all folders instead of just the inbox.

Beyond that if you still really want a client I'd suggest the latest outlook or thunderbird. I know people seem to auto-hate microsoft products but from what I've used of outlook I've never had any large issues with it (well none that were the applications fault, although other people that have used it more may have some complaints I never came across). Thunderbird is pretty solid too although the older versions I've used had a few small things that annoyed me, but overall it was a very solid product and you can't beat the price.

Plus for some reason my gmail account gets so much spam... it all gets filtered into the "spam" folder but it's still annoying and I wouldn't want to have to deal with that through an email client.

GMail now with nowadays connections and browsers are so much faster and comfortable !!!
Since GMail got so much better and now the web interface can be used for most other emails which has POP support/feature, I don't need any email client, I just use GMail and put all my email accounts there and filter them as I want, I can access it anywhere I want, on any computer which has Internet connection, even on a mobile phone which has Opera mini and some kind of connection, Wifi or Gprs..

Lets take a look...
Every mail client is with some advantages and disadvantages...
1. Outlook: Outlook is Microsoft product. All looks good with it but problems are slow synchro, too many bugs and biggest one --- ONLY ONE ACOUNT IS SUPPORTED. If you try to use other one. Its all mess or it crashes in few days.No compression support, Easy hacking support, shows your password and everything easily. Not free, comes with Office Suite or you can buy it separately.
2.Thunderbird: Everybodys favorite now a days. But some issue are unresolved. Many times it downloads only the unread messages NOT ALL (even you start it for the very first time). Not much secured but ok ok compression and multiple account support. Trendy and easy handling makes it lead. Addons support is the best feature you can have here also its FREE.
3. THE BAT: HERE COMES THE KING. Yes Bat is with multiple account support, PASSWORD SECURITY FOR EACH ACCOUNT SEPARATELY, HIGH compression, Message filtering, Attachment handler, downloads fast, Don't reveal you information openly, have search capabilities and other things to rely on. BUT ITS NOT FREE. There are two edition to buy-- HOME and PRO.
Hope I helped Thank you.

I have been using Evolution for a few years now with two gmail accounts. One for personal and one for business. I haven't had anything bad to say about it ever. I know a lot of people use Thunderbird. I have thought about giving Thunderbird a try to see how it compares to Evolution; however, I guess I'm just that happy with Evolution.
I used to use Outook back in my Microsoft days, but they are long over. Evolutions address book seems to sync well with my gmail address books as well.
If you're running the right OS(Linux) to use it, I would seriously give it a try.-reply by Nausser

Outlook doesn't work correctly with IMAP. It's not a matter of auto-hate, but since Microsoft leverages their semi-monopoly to edge out competition, their products will sometimes neglect to remain current with industry standards.
Same goes for Apple, though they have less of a platform to leverage in terms of email.
Not moralizing here, it's just how things are. Outlook is a terrible email client for gmail. Mac's Mail.App is decent. On Mac, Mailplane is good, but costs money. Thunderbird works fine for most things.-reply by thegnu

I use eM Client for about a year. Everything you need is just fill in your gmail credentials and your gmail account is set. It allows you to synchronize contacts and calendars and also integrates google jabber. I also love the communication and attachment history = no search needed. Well, it's not for free if you want more than 2 e-mail accounts, but for 49 bucks it definitely worth it.
