Pros: When your company sends you emails with airfare attachments and you can receive them fine with "free" email programs there is little to like with Mailbird that you paid money for and DOES NOT WORK!

Cons: It simply does not work. Their support has tried to figure it out but cannot. My companies Emails sent me arrive without their attachments. I can go to a web browser or other email programs that I use and the email is complete with attachment....every time!

MailBird is very good, but not excellent e-mail client.

Pros: Support for 3+ accounts with an inexpensive one-time purchase of the pro version, lot's of integrated apps ranging from Google apps to Whatsapp and Dropbox. Responsive and helpful technical support.

Cons: Adding organizational Exchange accounts seems to be hit or miss, worked seamlessly for some, didn't work at all for others (yet). Windows 10 notifications for mails don't seem to always take me to the desired email, I have to first open the client instead.

Overall: I love the integration of different apps within the mail client and it allowed me to ditch Outlook/Mail for Windows without regrets.

Pros: Great integration with other products, clean look, and lots of customization. This is one of the best mail apps out there.

Cons: I installed this app yesterday on a worklab computer and now today I received three marketing emails to my .gov email address trying to get my Entire team to upgrade for a reduced price. The only problem is that I just went back and checked, I did not use the .gov email to purchase Mailbird or correspond with Mailbird at any time. They had to have pulled it from my list of email addresses that I setup in the application. That is a bit shady if you ask me. I will be uninstalling this app and asking for a refund.

Mailbird is a very simple to use but capable email client with some very handy app integrations.

Pros: Mailbird is an excellent and easy email client with which you can manage your different email accounts and your email's there within simple and quick. Third party app integration gives one the possibility to enhance once productivity by social media connections (Whatsapp and Facebook) and to-do lists, Google Calendar, Contacts, Keep, Evernote, Dropbox. This way, you have a very handy application which by a simple system of settings can be displayed in different manners. The email writer is easy and contains all necessary features.

Cons: There seems no pursue of the integration of more useful apps into mailbird but this might be in the development pipeline as well. A nicer automatic organizer of email groups (which groups all emails of one sender into one single group for easy management or tagging) would be very much appreciated.

Pros: Perfect to manage all email account from the software, send and receive emails, manage your contacts.

Cons: as a bones,it is better if would have compatibility with onedrive, google drive and others virtual storage server, because sometimes it is necessary send files unavailable in your laptop or device where you are sending emails.

Overall: Good software but it needs to develop another tools.

Pros: Easy to use... and that is about it, there really is nothing else to say, it is a mail client software.. Gotta keep typing because they want 100 words or more...

Cons: Reliability, Customer Support, All the Lies, Time wasted. We have belived their constant stream of lies for almost 2 years, so much so that we have change servers 4 times. Believing their was a problem with the servers and NOT mailbird. So we invested in our own server and we still have connection problems, but Mailbird just wants to blame the server or the ip address or the anti-virus software... Sick to death of it... And their response time is almost laughable if it weren't so serious.

Overall: None just a lot of headaches...

Pros: This is one of the only third party mail clients I have found that supports Exchange server so I can use it with work. It also lets you customize how it is laid out, which is a plus.

Cons: Not nearly as feature rich as the OSX apps it is trying to mimic. Would like to be able to archive/delete emails by swiping left and right. Wish it had a built in calendar like Windows 10's mail app.

Pros: I haven't had any problems using Mailbird. It is very clean and the basic version is free to use. It is the best, easiest-to-use client I have found so far.

Cons: It is annoying that it seems every few days there is a new required update for small updates, such as fixing a bug for a certain device.

This is truly great email software, if only it were multi-platform!

Pros: I love Mailbird! It revolutionized the way I do email, bringing better organization than what I had in Gmail. I also liked having a mini-browser on the right side of my widescreen for things like todo lists in web apps.

Cons: Mailbird is only on PC for now, which means its organizational benefits only partially translate to mobile and to my mac at home. Unfortunately, this proved a dealbreaker for me after many months of trying.

Overall: Better mail organization, without being subject to Google's ads and interfaces

Pros: Love the possibility to integrate the Apps I use most into this software. Being able to have Dropbox, Asana, Trello, Todoinst, Facebook and others in just one place is time-saving and I love it.

Cons: Reception of "standard" messages from customer support when submitting queries, that's off-putting. Also, the inability to categorize messages. I would like to be able to mark messages (colour codes, for example), putting them labels.

Overall: Easy configuration of accounts and settings. Nice Apps integration.

Pros: It works fine as an email client. It is a nice looking interface and easy to use. The customer support is great.

Cons: I bought a lifetime license but had to stop using it because of the poor search functionality. It was a deal breaker for me. If that is fixed I would move back to using Mailbird. I also would like to see more freedom in creating your own signature. It would be great if folders can be dragged to where you want them.

Overall: Easy to use and nice looking interface.

Pros: Very modern design, has a lot of apps you can connect like WhatsApp, Facebook and many others... For me I switched from an open source mail client because the design was too simple for my taste. Now with mailbird I can enjoy a new client with a lot of options and features for lifetime license.

Overall: I'm a happy customer, mailbird does what I need from a mail client and while I don't use any apps I find it a very good option in case i need it.

Pros: Customer support is good. They are constantly making improvements. When I purchased, I had the option to buy it for life. The program easily manages all of my e-mail accounts. The settings for the program and for individual accounts are extensive. My favorite feature would have to be how easy it is to setup accounts. Many programs (especially from Microsoft) require a person to know all of the right settings. You can certainly edit those in Mailbird, but often don't need to.

Cons: There are periodic glitches with updates. The latest was the inability to scroll through messages using the mouse wheel. These things often get fixed eventually, but they are usually simple things that I use regularly so it is a nuisance. Many of the symbols are confusing. Not a big deal once you learn the product, but they aren't intuitive.

Pros: Everything you need is combined into one app. It basically creates mini-web pages that you can quickly toggle to. You can integrate Slack, Google Drive, Google Docs. Google Calendar, Asana, Feedly, Trello, Todoist, Hangouts, Keep, Facebook, and Chrome, just to name a few. It works best with Gmail, but it can also handle Exchange.

Snooze emails - you know when you get an email that wants a response, but either now is not a good time, or maybe you need more information before you can answer, or perhaps you need to hear from someone else before you can respond back. Snooze will allow you to set a reminder to respond to that emails at a later time when you think you might have an answer.

The price is good and they usually have good deals, especially if you act in the first few hours.

Cons: It doesn't work (or at least I haven't really figure it out) with Exchange/Office 365 calendars. There are some things you can do in your O365 settings to create the calendar's URL, but it's only a one-way deal. You can't create calendars entries that sync back with O365.

It would also be nice if Mailbird was available for Mac, iOS, Android, and especially ChromeOS.

Overall: Much cheaper than Outlook. Lifetime license. Better functionality than Outlook (e.g. keyboard shortcuts, snoozing, integrations).

Mailbird is a handy tool for managing emails, with an extra on apps for enhancements.

Pros: The software is easy to use with a nice overal design. Additionally to the normal email functions it's easy to sort ans secedule emails.

It also integrates many additional apps like todoist, google calender, whatsapp, facebook, contacts and more with which you can interact directly from the email program. Very useful in some occasions indeed. You can use the apps and the email view side by side what gives a great integration.
A black theme (and more) is great for saving on light. Regular updates.

Cons: There is no mobile application what restricts its functionality strictly to the PC. The integration of new apps is slow.

Overall: My organization of email conversations has been improved nicely.

Pros: - Mailbird supports multiple accounts and identities very well (including unified folders)
- You can postpone emails easily
- Basic email handling is particularly fast

Cons: - Key emails are not identified smartly
- Mailbird does not offer filters or other tools for automation such as suggested replies or folders for filing

Overall: - Mailbird manages mail for multiple IMAP and POP email accounts. (The free version is limited to 3 accounts.)

- If you have more than one account configured, Mailbird consolidates standard folders into unified inboxes, draft and sent folders, etc. (All accounts are still accessible individually.)

Pros: Mailbird is single-handedly the best software that I have implemented in the last few years. I tried every desktop email client I could find and was extremely impressed with Mailbird right from the start. My goal in transitioning from Gmail in a browser to a desktop client was to be able to answer all of my emails while traveling and being disconnected from the internet. Now Gmail has an offline mode, but Mailbird still beats using Gmail in the browser because of all of its other features. I love having a shortcut [ctrl-alt-space] to start an email from anywhere on my computer. Their shortcut keys allow for very fast email composing, reading, and managing. There are many software integrations so you can sync to all of your email accounts, calendars, chats, project management software, etc. My New Year's Resolution in 2016 was to get to Inbox Zero and stay there. Mailbird helped me do this by organizing all of my email, making it easy to sort, and quickly reply. I am still at Inbox Zero 1.5 years later. It does a great job organizing your contacts, handling attachments, and managing your folders. It even has a way to search only your attachments to find that document from months ago that you can't remember who sent.

Cons: I really don't have any cons in using Mailbird other than they don't have a mobile app. This isn't a huge problem as there are other apps for mobile, but it would be very helpful to have the same look and feel on a phone.

Overall: Mailbird helped me reach and maintain Inbox Zero for 1.5 years and counting. I am now far more organized in my life by being able to handle my email as it comes in daily instead of letting it fall behind.
