Powerful and user-friendly piece of software that allows you to read / send e-mails, store contacts and schedule important appointments
By default, the Foxmail interface is in Chinese. To use Foxmail in English just access the Languages folder inside the installation directory and delete the Chinese.lgb file. However, for the English version the 'Reply' feature will be affected (the content of the original message will not be displayed in the reply - you can use the HTML templates to avoid this)
E-mail users need, besides a good webmail service, an e-mail client software to manage their messages. Amongst the popular choices of users worldwide, such as Microsoft Outlook, Mozilla Thunderbird, Pegasus Mail, The Bat! or IBM Notes, Foxmail's top ranking in the Softpedia “Email Clients” category may seem a bit odd.
Being a Chinese application, the developer did not see fit that the installation process or the starting language of the actual program should be English and opted for Chinese. In order to switch the interface language to English, you have the choice of deleting the “Chinese.lgb” file from the installation directory or go to the menu bar and try to find your way around until you see “English”.
That being said and done, you can now assign your email account to the program. This particular process does not bring any difficulties and you will have your account set up in a matter of seconds.
It sports a friendly and well-organized GUI that incorporates three main vertical panels for a quick overview of email messages, contents of the current email folder as well as the selected message.
Foxmail supports multiple email accounts to work simultaneously, thus providing you with all the messages you receive and notifies you every time when something new arrives in your inbox.
The email client software also offers a calendar for scheduling your appointments and a RSS feed reader. It handles message composition with ease through its WYSIWYG method and allows you to create refined email filters. The application also supports Outlook messages, Exchange email accounts and mailbox encryption.
Foxmail works with any given email account and brings all the necessary tools to simplify the email management process. The only downside of the software revolves around the installation process that may be too much for some users that just don't want to guess their way to its completion and quickly go for some other program in its category.
All in all, Foxmail is a pretty handy piece of software for managing your e-mail account. The interface is suitable to all, the computer’s performance is not going to be hindered and our tests did not reveal any errors or hangs.

Comprehensive e-mail client that lets you chat with other people and supports extensions, multiple tabs, and security features (e.g. signature, certificate, encryption etc.)
Sending emails has become a very popular means of communication, no matter if you want to send messages to your friends or your work colleagues.
And while there are numerous solutions that can provide you with ease and use and attractive GUIs, Thunderbird still remains one of the most popular email clients out there.
When installing Thunderbird for the first time, you can leave it to the app to automatically detect all the appropriate server settings for the email address you enter. Alternatively, you can manually enter the SMTP or IMAP details, then check if the connection is successful.
Once this step is completed, you can access the main window and explore the messages from your Inbox and the other folders you might have created (such as Drafts, Sent, Junk, Trash, Outbox, or custom ones like Archives, Important, and so on).
When it comes to reading your email messages, you can either use the preview panel or you can open them in a full-screen window - since Thunderbird supports tabs, you can open multiple messages side by side and explore them at the same time.
All the actions you can perform from the dedicated toolbar or menus can also be found in the right-click menu, so you can easily reply, forward or delete messages, as well as move to a new folder or assign relevant tags.
Just like Mozilla's other flagship product, Firefox, Thunderbird can be personalized via extensions. You can not only tamper with its appearance by installing themes, but you can also enhance its functionality with dedicated add-ons.
Additionally, you can benefit from the built-in task manager and calendar to organize and track events so you do not miss any deadline.
In a nutshell, Thunderbird remains one of the most popular email clients out there due to its versatility and ease of use, thus making it suitable for novices and experts alike.
