I use Windows live mail with Windows 10 on three systems and it works fine
with all three. I use Jaws primarily but can also use NVDA.
Thunderbird is a pretty good email client but has some very annoying issues
in my opinion. If you wish to exit the message you are reading without
deleting it, you have to close it before you go to the next message, whereas
with WLM you simply press Jaws + right arrow to move to the next message.
When you read all the unread messages in a folder and there is one read
which you want left there, TB goes into that message and you often have to
press the esc key before you can go back to the tree view.
These two issues have continued through several updates with no change.

It doesn't matter if Windows Live Mail isn't supported. It still works very
well in Windows 7. I've seen a comment that it doesn't in Windows 10 but
that appears to be not true. I know one person who uses Windows Live Mail
in Windows 10 and I saw another comment on a list that the commentrr uses it
and that it works well.

I find Thunderbird slower to open messages than Windows Live Mail, which is
one reason I continue to use it in Windows 7. The sluggishness of
Thunderbird is something I wouldn't generalize about. I've seen different
reports from different people using different systems. So the only way to
know may be for the interested person to try it on his or her system.

I hope you consider trying Windows Live Mail.

Thanks to all who answered my question. I've tried Thunderbird with both
JAWS and NVDA and found it sluggish when typing and navigating. It's my
understanding that Windows Live Mail isn't even supported anymore. I tried
Windows 10 Mail a year or so ago when I was using NVDA but found parts of it
inaccessible. Someone told me it works better with JAWS. So, I may try it
again, but for now, I'll just use the gmail site. I appreciate everyone's
