Improve Your Team’s Performance With These Email Client Apps

Improve Your Team’s Performance with these Email Client Apps

Let’s be honest, in business, there are always at least a couple of ways that you can improve both the productivit and the satisfaction of your employees. And any good business owner knows that these two notions go hand in hand.

One of the most important contributors when it comes to productivity, at least, is providing the proper tools – those that enable your team to, essentially, do the job as effectively as possible.

Communication; communication; communication. Internally, externally, and anything in between – the chance to communicate effectively, and to get real-time interaction on time-sensitive issues ensures that your team can deliver the results you expect to see. The best email clients are what make this happen, and whichever one you choose, go for the tried and tested – the straight and true.

Read on – we’ve put together a list of the best options out there right now, what you can expect with each, and pointed out the one we think offers the most bang for your buck.


Having been in business for just shy of 10 years – only starting out in 2013 – it’s refreshing to see an email client that’s able to keep up with the ever-changing demands of both businesses as well as their customers and employees alike. Combine that with a sophisticated UI and low pricing – it’s easy to see why this is one of the best team chat apps for thousands of businesses worldwide.

There’s a free version, sure, and the level of service you get for nothing is a steal, but the Business plan, with a minimum of 20 accounts, will set you back a more-than-acceptable $16. For that price, you can expect unlimited storage, unlimited users per group, a dedicated account manager, and much more. Oh, and you can try it all for nothing with a free trial.

Microsoft Outlook

Let’s be honest, there’s not much Microsoft can do to make people turn to its own applications over the ones we’ve come to love and trust. Edge and Internet Explorer versus the likes of Chrome and Firefox is a key example.

That being said, plenty of Windows users are fond of Microsoft Outlook. Why? Because it’s free, and it consolidates all of their email accounts into one, easy-to-manage location.

Sure, it works differently from the other services in this list, but if you’re running a company that uses the G Suite – operating primarily via Gmail and using Hangouts for instant messaging – it’s a great way to bring together the multiple email accounts you need to manage in one place. It can host your Microsoft email addresses as well as Gmail, Yahoo, iCloud, and many more.


Mailbird is known for being wide open to integrations as well as its affordability. To be honest, it does exactly what it says on the tin – it brings together all mailing into one location, it’s simple to use and offers a no-fuss approach to email management.

What’s more, hosting video conferences is a breeze, so there’s no need to use any outside options like Skype or Hangouts. Taking on new hires? One simple download to get comms up to scratch is all that’s necessary here.

Founded in 2013, Mailbird prides itself on ease of access and price fairness. That being said, for the level of service available, Spike does the same and more for a fraction of the cost.

Thunderbird has held a place on the screens of businesses around the world since it was founded back in 2003. The open-source, Mozilla-run client is a good choice for businesses that are just getting started and those that are seeing just how effectively an email client can streamline communication as well as improve it.

The drawback here is is that it’s free. Sure, you get a lot for nothing, and it can do a lot to support your team, but many of the key features are missing, and for a minor yearly payment, you’ll get access to more tools and witness greater results.

On the face of it, the UI here is a little rough, and the tools and the possibility for integrations and customization, though possible, leave a lot to be desired compared to the likes of Spike.
