    Hello. What would you recommend as a email client for home and personal use? I'll be using it with Yahoo and Google mail, of which I have multiple accounts.From a security point of view, what would you recommend and why?

    Thank you!

    Been using thunderbird for years, actually just installed a very early version and just kept updating till today, very easy to backup.

    Some time ago I used Thunderbird but due to frequent crashes I moved to Mailbird and am very satisfied with it
    I also recommend Mildbird is a simple to use interface and faster than Thunderbird.

    Thunderbird all the way. Been using it since 2004. I don't recall it ever crashing. I just hope they don't kill it someday. From a security point of view, use stamps and send your correspondence thru the postal service. :D. Common sense works too.

    Mailbird only supports one account unless you pay for the full version, Thunderbird wins hands down.

    Yeah I'm a thunderbird user. It works well. It supports multiple accounts and is free. :)

    That's the way to live! Go for both of them. The only issue I had was that I liked both because on client had a feater that the other didn't, and vice versa. They should combine both and they would have an Ultimate email client.
