Zimbra Desktop

Zimbra Desktop is another good free alternative to Microsoft Outlook. Zimbra Desktop is a free email client from Yahoo. It provides lot of features that Thunderbird does. However, one biggest advantage that Zimbra Desktop provides is you can access your free Yahoo mail account directly from Zimbra Desktop. This is not possible with any other email client, unless you have POP access to your Yahoo account. This feature has made Zimbra Desktop indispensable for me, as I can access my own domain’s accounts, Yahoo account, and Gmail account – all from one place.
