Need a compatible POP3 email reader

I am on the new system and like it.  Works fine!  I am running Windows 10 constantly updated and the Viasat Browser is the default, and it works fine too.
I don't like webmail generally, and do not like or care to use Gmail or any of the other webmail servers.  I find the Wildblue webmail server to be clunky.  It works OK, but given the volume of what I do, I'd prefer something else.
I want to install and use a POP3 email reader.
Have had some trouble finding one that I can be assured is compatible with the new satellite  system and OS.  Is anyone aware of one that can be downloaded and installed and actually work?
I used to use Eudora years back, but it appears as though that has also become a webmail service, which is not what I have in mind.
Could use knowledgeable suggestions.

Mail built in to Windows 10 works, Outlook Works, Mozzila Works.

Thunderbird. Hands down. Not even a debate.


I used Eudora back in the day too. You will like Thunderbird.

I use the built in Mail in Windows 10 along with Thunderbird (about 50/50).  I find that some email doesn't display properly in one or the other, so I switch back and forth.  Apple Mail on a Mac has them both beat, IMHO!

That's interesting. I never had a problem with Thunderbird what so ever.

I can't speak to Mac Mail. I did like the old Outlook, but Microsoft screwed it up along with Office, Windows, etc.

I used Live Mail until Microsoft quit supporting it.  The newsletter I get from https://nam02.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fmailing.eletters.whatsnewnow.com%2F... is one thing that never displays properly in Thunderbird but does fine in Windows Mail.  Some links I receive for stuff for sale get blocked in Windows Mail but work fine in Thunderbird, even links to items on ebay!  Blocked by something to do with Office 365, which I don't even use or have installed!
