Many different e-mail applications--also known as clients--are designed to run on Microsoft Windows. Some of these third party e-mail clients are available for free and others have a small associated cost. Most Windows-based e-mail clients are designed to be compatible with Microsoft Outlook, because so many people use it. Outlook and third party e-mail applications are compatible across Local Area Networks, as well as with standard POP3 and IMAP Internet e-mail services.


Eudora is a popular third party e-mail application that works well with Windows Outlook. Eudora features an easy Outlook importer that helps you move messages, addresses and attachments to Eudora so you can easily make it your primary e-mail client. Eudora has a wide variety of useful features, such as drag-and-drop e-mail attachments, e-mail formatting and pre-configured styles, fast searching, automatic filtering and sorting, spam watch, scam watch and virus protection. Eudora comes in both free and paid versions. You can download free trials of the paid versions if you wish.


Pegasus is a free e-mail client made to run with Windows. The software is very small, meaning it takes up very little room on your hard drive. This small size also allows it to load and run fast despite the plethora of features it offers, making it a popular alternative to Outlook. Pegasus can be installed to run on a single computer or over an entire Local Area Network. When it's installed on one computer, multiple people can use it by setting up their own separate username and password. Having separate logins to the software allows each person to keep their e-mail messages private, have their own address book and have customised filters or spam settings. Pegasus has multilingual capability and a strong security system to help protect your computer against viruses, Trojans and other Internet-related problems. Some of the most popular features include automated mail filtering and filing, Bayesian filters that allow custom spam control and mail merge features that allow you to send customised e-mail to multiple recipients simultaneously.


Thunderbird is an e-mail client you can download for free alone, or as part of the Firefox Web browser software suite. Thunderbird is easy to set up; just type in your e-mail address and password and the software finds your server settings based on information in its database. Thunderbird features a one-click address book for adding new contacts, and you can personalise each contact with a photo, birth date and other information. You can open e-mail messages in new windows or tabs for easy management and the comprehensive search interface provides you with both filtering and timeline tools to help you quickly find old e-mails.
