    Yesterday I tried Thunderbird and I did not like it, I do not know if it was the little habit of using it or that it was not very functional, I really do not know well but a priori I did not like the interface.
    I use in Linux Debian 10 Sylpheed 3.7.0 and in Win 10 one called The Bat, both very similar.
    Maybe try this Blue Mail to see how it goes.
    But good to taste the colors hehe, greetings to all

      Greetings, Octavio. Thank you for your comment and contribution. I did not know, "The Bat" although I see that it is only for Windows. I hope Bluemail will serve you. Soon we hope to delve a little more about Bluemail.

        If you happen to use win you can try it, I mean The Bat, you will see that it is a very complete email client. It works from XP onwards.
