E-mail Program For Windows 8.1

[ad]Dear Computer Lady

I am in need of an email program that is compatible with windows 8.1

I am using eM Client but it will not download my default mail.

Is there any other free email programs that will work with 8.1?

Thanks for all the great newsletters! Dean

Dear Dean,

I like to use the free, open source email program, Mozilla Thunderbird with Windows 7 and Windows 8. In fact, I have it installed right now on my Windows 8.1 computer.

You can safely download Thunderbird using the link below:


I have found Thunderbird to be easy to setup, and it has more features than the email program that comes with Windows 8.

They even have tutorials on the website, just click on the, “Support” link at the bottom of the page listed above.
