    Yes, I haven't found any good ones which "just works" in windows 10 store. May be some one can find an app hidden deep inside store which doesn't show in search.

    Most users seem fine with the default mail app or are using outlook program from office

    P.S.: Especially Outlook.com for the quick and easy access to so many other services.

    Outlook from Office 365 and Thunderbird from Mozilla are both excellent.

    Postbox. Without a doubt the best email client I've used and is available for OS X too.

    Well, it's like this. The way the traditional desktop email apps talk to Windows is via a system called MAPI. Unfortunately MS decided not to include full MAPI with Windows and instead provided a 'MAPI Light' system which was rubbish. This means that any email programme that does not provide its own MAPI system integrates poorly with Windows (ie. for clicking mail links). Of course, the full paid desktop Outlook package that comes with Office included the full MAPI framework so any third party mail app could use it, but nothing much did because only Office owners had it. That's how it was, I've lost the will to keep up with the area for a long while now.

    This is why there are some good email packages for Windows but they are mostly paid packages. Few free alternatives are comparable to the paid offerings because MS got stingy with the API. Perhaps this has now changed and things will/have developed?

    The default mail app (outlook) is more than awesome. It does even more than I need. As for UWP apps, that one is the best, you won't find any better. And if you're looking for full x86 apps, then yup.. some of the one listed above (thunderbird, outlook from office, etc.).
