I use outlook with office on my desktop. The outlook is for the strictest in the need to know people and friends. It is never used to register anything buy anything, etc.

I have a web based I use for a crap attracter that gets general use, and another web based I have linked to all my bills.

I use outlook, I plan my life around my calendar, and its really smart about auto adding dates and tracking info etc. I like how my rules sync back to the web version. I was tempted to say both, but the reality is I have outlook installed on all my personal machines.

Not that I mail a lot.

If I only had one email account, I would probably use webmail. My ISP (Cox) provides 10 emails addresses per account - each with separate webmail access. I have assigned 6 and I have 3 of those addresses I use and receive email to daily. I also have 3 gmail accounts I use daily . While the gmail accounts are web-based, I NEVER access them or my Cox accounts via my browser - except when necessary to configure them, or, in the case of the gmail accounts, to clear out all the false positives gmail inevitably puts in the spam folders. :( Note gmail will auto-purge spam (and legitimate emails it thinks is spam) every 30 days.

To access each of those 6 email accounts individually via a separate browser page multiple times each day would be a real PITA. So I don't.
I use outlook, I plan my life around my calendar
Ever since Outlook 97, I have used Outlook as my local email client. I am currently running Outlook 2016. Unlike Solaris17, I don't plan my life around my calendar. My calendar plans and runs my life. ;) I depend on it yelling at me for appointments, birthdays (5 kids, 8 grandkids, 1 great-grand kid), anniversaries and more. My Outlook calendar also yells at me every 3 weeks to check my gmail spam folders for false positives. And I always find a few. :(

While Outlook is a great email client, in between all my email accounts and my Outlook client sits MailWasher Pro (MWP). While MWP is marketed as a spam blocker, it is much more than that. It has a separate inbox where all my emails appear. I get about 50 - 60 emails per day with most being forum notifications. I can "work" those notifications and most other emails right from MWP's inbox. It allows me to reply, forward and delete them directly from the servers without the emails (or their potentially malicious attachments) ever touching my local computer. :)

Once I have gone through all my daily emails, then and only then do I call up Outlook to retrieve the 3 or 4 "keepers" I actually want to download into Outlook.

*****

Full disclosure - I've been a beta tester for Firetrust, the developers of MailWasher, for almost 20 years. While I highly recommend MailWasher Pro, I get no compensation of any kind for doing so, and I have no connection, financial or otherwise, with Firetrust or any of its employees. This is NOT meant as a promotion. If you only have 1 email account, for sure, the free version would suffice. The Pro version is needed to support 2 or more, up to an unlimited number of email addresses. IMO, the initial $30 1 year license plus $25 annual renewal fees is a bit steep. However, the one-time $75 "lifetime" license (for 3 PCs) is well worth it.

I must also point out that Outlook's own spam blocker, Junk E-mail, is not bad and of course, most web-based email providers have built in spam blockers too. As I noted, I use MWP more as a client/mail handler than I do as a spam blocker.

I'm shocked no one has yet to mention Yahoo mail, I've found their spam filter to be 100% accurate!




All spam emails will accurately go into your inbox 100% of the time.

I use yahoo but I don't use the app on my phone (I do it through my browser). I don't like the fact that you can't log out using the app.

The part I hate the most about yahoo is that when you log out it takes you to its homepage. The shit they put on there drives me f"n nuts.

Windows Mail app in my primary desktop. Gmail in android. Web sign-in elsewhere.

I have three email addresses in Yahoo, Hotmail (now Outlook) and Gmail and three completely different passwords. I usually use a combination of the six when signing up anywhere. But gradually changing important accounts to use Outlook and Gmail only cause how many times have Yahoo been breached again? Suffice to say Outlook and Gmail are also each others backup/security check addresses. I only use Yahoo for the sites I'm not afraid to lose account of.

I use the gmail interface for all my email accounts. That way all my email is funneled into one spot that is synced with all my devices including phones, and all my calendar and contact information is also synced. The only reason I don't use outlook is there isn't an easy way to have it synced across multiple devices unless you have exchange(or hosted exchange).
