I use Thunderbird. It comes pre-installed with LL. It has contacts and calender functions. Works great for me.

Heya,
On the subject, I was inspired but this post ;)
I really like Thunderbird for POP3/IMAP but I'm stuck with Outlook on Windows at work because of Exchange.I know "exchange compatible" email clients exist on Windows (and wre unstable last time I tried) but Thunderbird does not support this.Since I don't want / hate to use the "Outlook web mail" does any Linux mail client support Exchange and/or Office 365 ?
Cheers!

Evolution
If you're a user of the popular Fedora or Debian distributions, you're probably already familiar with the next option on our list, Evolution. Evolution is an official part of the GNOME project, but it didn't start out that way. Originally developed at Ximian, and later Novell, Evolution was designed from the ground up to be an enterprise-ready email application.

To this end, Evolution supports Exchange Server and a number of other email setups you might find in a corporate environment. It's also a full personal information manager (PIM), sporting a calendar, task list, contact manager, and note taking application, in addition to handling your email. Even if it's not the default mail application in your distribution, you might want to take a look if you're interested in these features or the included spam filtering, GNU Privacy Guard (GPG) support, integration with LibreOffice, or a slew of other features

Does anyone have any good suggestion for email clients to use on Linux Lite?

Hello nic,
I use Thunderbird for email on the Linux Lite desktop.
I use ProtonMail for email online with Linux Lite.

Claws Mail; lightweight, resource friendly, easy to set up, extensible via plugins. I've been using for quite some time now and after trying others think's the best email client out there.

Hope this help! :)
Without each others help there ain't no hope for us :)

I've been using the web based Outlook for all my systems, WinXP, Win 7, Win8.1, Win10, Linux Lite, and about 13 other Linux OS's.  All work fine.

Interesting to see some suggestions which I have not tried yet, maybe I'll explore some time.

I love using Evolution on LL, I have it on 2 LL computers, it syncs very well between both. It has an excellent calendar - I use it for my own private use, i.e. I'm not organizing events for a group etc., but I haven't heard that it would not work in such a situation.

Evolution has an excellent data back-up which takes just a few minutes.

Evolution is Linux only, so some people prefer, for example, Thunderbird, which works on other OSs as well.

Like in most things, we will all have our preferences, long may it be so.
SN.

Seamonkey is a combination of E-mail client with Browser and Chat apps.  It's very much like Thunderbird and Firefox put together and fully integrated (in fact Seamonkey was a Mozilla project until very recently).  It does everything T-Bird and Firefox do, yet has thousands fewer lines of code than Firefox!
