Dear List Friends,
 
I was able to install Windows Live Mail successfully on my computer yesterday. I used the installer sent by one of our list friends, Brian Vogel.
 
A big thanks to Brian for his help.

But the big difference, and sometimes the deal-breaker, is that Thunderbird is free, and many people only want it if it's free.

I notice that some people recommend Thunderbird as a JAWS-friendly email client. I have used this program for many years, initially with NVDA and now with JAWS 2019. While Thunderbird does technically work reasonably well with JAWS it does have its quirks which, while minor, may prove to be annoying for some users. I continue to use it because it's what I'm comfortable using. However, if I'm going to be honest I'd say that Outlook is really a better choice. JAWS not only supports it beautifully but it offers many ways to customize it in the quick settings dialog that you won't find when using Thunderbird.

It’s probably a different strokes for different folks deal, but for me, I find using the favorites section for switching between inboxes much quicker and more convenient this way. I’ve never really liked the control plus y command. Much less if it’s a command I do countless times every single day.

I have that many as well and I hit control-y and the first letter of the account I want to check.

Maybe I should look at the favorites, but it is hard to imagine it makes things any easier.

Folders. Convenient if you have multiple accounts configured. I’ve got four inboxes and two different draft folders in my Outlook 2016 favorites section.

I have never used the Favorites in Outlook 2016.

Are these Favorite contacts, or favorite folders?

I am unable to move to the Favourites list in Outlook 2016 by using the Tab key. So, I have to use the CTRL+Y keystroke to move from folder to folder. But my brother can see the folder list on screen & move through it with a mouse.

 

I am running JAWS 18 & Office 2016 on a Windows 10 desktop.

Hi,

  Mail, the Windows 10 app has limited JAWS useage but for a best client I would recommend Outlook , Thunderbird  as others have suggested.

Dear List friends,

 

I was previously using Windows Live Mail 2012 with Windows 7 to check my emails. Now I have upgraded to Windows 10 & found that Windows Live Mail will not install on Windows 10.

 

I request you to kindly suggest me a basic JAWS-friendly email client which I can use to check my emails & which is compatible with Windows 10.

 

Thanking you all in advance for your kind assistance.

Regards

Mr. Sameer Latey,
