With a long and somewhat meandering history that stretches back to the days before the first "talkies" arrived at cinemas, JBL have garnered an enviable reputation for solid, reliable high quality audio that inspires confidence in the buyer. Some of their wackier looking creations such as the "Creature" range of PC speakers may raise the odd eyebrow but somehow the JBL logo gives you the confidence that the sound quality will be solid and not compromised just to get attention from the design.>

Windows 10 Mail sucks
Wayne Brooker at Tuesday 3rd November filed under Competitions
After skipping Windows 8 I felt I simply had to run with Windows 10, not least for the (potential) benefits of DirectX 12. Well, having finally bit the bullet I must confess to feeling somewhat underwhelmed. My gast certainly isn't flabbered. Don't get me wrong, it's OK, almost like the lovechild of Windows 7 and 8. It's just not very groundbreaking.

So what's the purpose of this slightly meandering post? Well, it's simply to share a little find with you. 

If, like me, you're sat aghast that Microsoft would bundle it's latest OS with a mail client that's as buggy, incomplete and featureless as Mail for Windows, you've no doubt been frantically searching for a replacement. I know I was. Then I found Mailbird.

Mailbird is a clean, simple email client with some amazing features (like auto-detecting your server settings from just your email address), and, are you listening Microsoft, the ability to sort your emails into folders and even nested folders all accessible from a simple keyboard shortcut. 
It has integrated social media functionality, it includes some nice task management touches and you can even customize the colours and layout.

Mailbird is free (with reasonably priced paid options for more features) and, above all, I'm not getting paid for saying any of this. 

With a team of responsive developers behind it I'm looking forward to seeing where this may lead. If you're struggling for a solid email client to replace the hash-up that is Windows Mail then why not give it a try?
