• A good, free e-mail client for Mac OS X 10.6.8?

    From Xplosive@VERT/ALLEYCAT to All on Sat Dec 26 01:30:01 2020
    Hello,„„I am a new Macbook Pro user. I bought a Macbook Pro 1.1 with Mac OS X 10.6.8 on 2020.11.18, and for some reason, I cannot open the Mail program. There are no error messages, the program simply does not want to open. I tried to look for alternative e-mail clients, but they are all paid programs. I am looking for a simple, good, free e-mail client for Mac OS X 10.6.8.„„Thank you for any suggestion!„„Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!„„---„ Ģ Synchronet Ģ AlleyCat! BBS Lake Echo, NS Canada„

    Hi,

    Thunderbird is also available for macOS and should work fine.

    Regards,
    Anna

    Thank you for the suggestions everyone. I downloaded and installed Thunderbird 45.8.0 on my Macbook Pro 1.1 (Mac OS X 10.6.8), and it works properly. Have a nice day and happy new year!„„---„ Ģ Synchronet Ģ AlleyCat! BBS Lake Echo, NS Canada„

    Haven't seen the other responses yet, but you could give Thunderbird a
    chance. Mailspring is also decent if you don't need Calendar integration.
