      Mr Stan the Man:

      Proton.mail is “in the Cloud”: all emails are kept in a server somewhere else.

      For my part, I prefer to keep all emails I consider of some interest in my computer, regularly backed up to an external disk along with everything of any actual or potential interest and, or value to me that I have in this machine.

      I share your feelings for Thunderbird. Unfortunately, of the very few options known to me, is the one that both more or less fits my requirements and needs and also works in my Mac. (Well, at least tries and, in so doing, now and then tries my patience as well.)

      So I am curious to know what others might recommend here, now that you have asked about this.

      Ex Windows user (Win. 98, XP, 7) since mid-2020. Now: running macOS Big Sur 11.6 & sometimes, Linux (Mint)

      Waterfox "Current" and (now and then) Chrome. also Intego AV and Malwarebytes for the Mac.

      I hadn’t heard before of Spring Mail, but as far as I know the free version of Proton Mail works via webmail only. They do have something they call the “Bridge” that you can download so that you can manage your email on a client such as Outlook, but this is available only to paying customers.

      If you’re looking for a free email client that’s not Outlook or Thunderbird, I can recommend eM Client. You can put up to two free email addresses on it, and I’ve had good experiences with this software.

        Hello,

        My internet provider is Spectrum and I use Microsoft Outlook in two ways first with Office 2007 and when I’m too lazy to use the icon I’ll use the blue icon on the task tray for Outlook Mail.

        Hope this helps,

        Best regards

      Of the three mentioned so far, two of them: Thunderbird, ProtonMail, have versions for Windows, macOS (Macs) and Linux. ProtonMail at least in its latest incarnation, mentioned by Cybertooth. It is still IMAP server-based, so the emails stay in their server, not in one’s computer:

      https://protonmail.com/bridge/install

      As to eM Client, it has versions for Windows and macOS, and all these three have versions that work on Macs with Intel (CISC) CPUs. As to what runs in the ones with Apple custom (RISC) M1 CPUs, better look around for answers, if interested.

      More on other mail clients can be found using the URL link below; some of these are the usual  suspects, but not all. Some of those others might be good, I really don’t know. Check them out, if you would like to find out more about them, and then perhaps let everyone here know what you find out:

      I’d suggest investing some time looking into Interlink and its developer before considering it.
