4. Zimbra Desktop

This is one the mail client I haven't tried myself, but Zimbra Desktop has a loyal following among business-minded usersand there's no reason it can't pitch in at home.

Indeed, as PC World's Jon Jacobi wrote in his Zimbra Desktop review, "Not only does this elegantly-styled program offer most of Outlook's features, it interfaces to social media sites and services: Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, WebEx and Digg currently."

Consequently, this might be the preferable choice for anyone making a move from Outlook.
