    K-9 Mail works on Android, can use POP3 or IMAP and is easy to use. It's open source with no adverts.

    open source, stable, essentially bug free, low on resource need, just e-mail without "cool" extra functions you never use.

    I used FairEmail before, which is also awesome. K9Mail has awesome integration of "OpenKeyChain", which is also FOSS and enables PGP encryption also apart from the mail program, so actually an advantage.

    K9-Mail has easy switches between profiles, a stunning modern GUI and easy support for "PGP encrypt" vs "just sign" with one click.

    So far, I dislike the presentation which doesn't allow me to have a global view on my messages and possibly even different accounts. I'm also missing contacts and contact groups. The application looks very much like Outlook that I don't appreciate because of its presentation.

    wrong platform. K-9 is for android, Thunderbird is not, so K9 is not a valid alternative for Thunderbird users

    It works. Much less buggy. Better integration with Windows. Encryption/Signing.Works over remote desktop without losing pieces of itself. Search is crappier though.

    wrong platform. FairEmail is not an alternative for Thunderbird users because it only runs on android. Thunderbird is for desktop operating systems only.

    It doesn't let you read existing email, it's a chat client that uses an IMAP mail server as its back end
