    "I have found that one of the essential keys to running a successful business to maintain frequent contact with customers. While meeting in person and phone calls still serve a role in communicating with clients, it is far more effective to use email. Therefore, I have found it to be fundamentally important to have a reliable business email service. Microsoft offers a wonderful email solutions that allow me to send and receive emails reliably and effortlessly with clients of my business. In addition, my Microsoft account features other highly useful tools, such as OneDrive that allow me to access work and client business documents wherever I am, regardless of whether I have access to my laptop computer. This makes working remotely and at client sites very easy."

    "If you are looking for a full service email client then eM client is what you are looking for. I currently use eM client as my email client, and also use it for it's other great features including the calendar which is easy to setup and integrate. The other great thing is the integration with google chat which ties together everything you need from google products. The layout of the client is very intuitive and easy to use, this is a great product that will save you time once you set it up to be a full service client."

    "I've tried a lot of the email solutions out there, and all have had their ups and downs. Nylas isn't that great in this regard and isn't really able to make itself stand out versus other platforms out there. If they had a linux version it would help, but they don't. Wouldn't really recommend."

    "Thunderbird is the e-mail client backed by Mozilla. Supported by a large open source organization and updated on a regular basis, it's the ideal e-mail client to use for businesses that don't have the budget to implement outlook or other paying clients. In addition to e-mail, Thunderbird also supports calendars and schedules."

    "Starting a business can be difficult, particularly if you're in sales and you're juggling a multitude of clients and potential clients. Outlook just didn't do it for my or my staff's needs. Zimbra Desktop, on the other hand, did. It's affordable, easy to set-up and extremely easy to learn... which was huge for my staff. Highly recommended for those in the business world."
