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

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

    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.

    Very pratic and user-friend, but it is too much simple, not personalizable.

    This alternative is disputed. Feedly is still a legitimate alternative to Thunderbird, but it might have issues that some users think are important.

    Some users think Microsoft Office Outlook is a great alternative to Thunderbird, some don't.

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

    As a Firefox user, I have tried to love Thunderbird but it just can't compete with Outlook, IMHO.

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