    Opera Mail

    It hasn't been supported for a number of years now though and I really should change it, familiarity breeds contempt :(

    I can't stop using it.

    Keep trying others as Opera isn't supported anymore, but just keep returning back to it, probably because of habit and familiarity more than anything else.

    Zimbra. It has multiple features which from review sites are very popular. Used it for over 10 years without a hitch.

    I'm almost embarrassed to admit that I am still using Outlook as part of Office 2003

    @AlasterCook the thread is about email applications not email services. Did you bother to read before posting?

    @JEREMY HAWKE probably, but its hard to know as it depends on needs, likes, dislikes..... and its difficult to compare any two things unless one as used both.

    You can set up one of the email applications mentioned to use IMAP to try it out (so the email applications syncs with your webmail). There should be instructions on the ionos site. Thunderbird (and most of the others) will usually do automatic setup given the server address and your username an password.

    On the other hand you do not have a history of making only short and pointless comments!

    It is similar to the difference between a web site and a web browser.

    You need an email server that sends and receives your emails. You can run your own (I do for some addresses, plan to move entirely over) or (as most people do) you can use someone else's.

    You also an need an application to read emails with. This used to be always a locally installed application - a separate program that you read your emails in.

    It is now common for people to use a service that provides both the mail server and a web app for reading email. This is called "webmail". This was started by Hotmail AFAIK but lots of other people (notably Google's Gmail and some Microsoft services) do it now.

    Most of those services can be used with a separate program. I do this with Gmail.

    I also have webmail software installed so users of my mail server have a choice and can use webmail as a fallback.

    My guess is that the gentleman that you are referring to is posting from the Indian subcontinent as they often use the names of English cricketers, misspelling them in the process

    If it's a email client you're after then Postbox might be a good option.

    Thunderbird - and I found it faster than Mac's mail!

    Microsoft Outlook as using an Exchange environment.

    You can use desktop versions of Outlook to send later and to quickly move to a folder.

    To send later:
    Compose your email. Click on options > delay delivery.

    To quickly move to a folder:
    Select email, then press shift+control+V on your keyboard.

    Having said that, I use Thunderbird + Quickfoldermove add-on for all my email filling. It's just a personal preference; all versions of Outlook can do the job, actually.
