Please recommend a private and secure email client

Does one even exist?

Do any of you guys have recommendations for an email client that you think is private and secure?

Currently I pay for email hosting, so I know the company and servers where my emails are stored and I choose to trust them. The only issue is that, from a usability standpoint, the email client that I actually use to access my emails is terrible; both on the desktop and mobile app.

While I'm satisfied with the privacy and security of my current email client, I just can't be as productive as I need to be with it, so I'm looking for another, much better option. I expect I'll have to pay for this service though as I know that 'free' email clients are paid for with your personal information that has been obtained by scanning/data mining your emails.

I don't know if it meets your requirements but have you tried zoho? I used it a few years ago and from what I can recall it was not to bad.

Secure is a strong word.

I just use opera or firefox and read it on the web.

Everyone I know is using Gmail.

I never had a program that could retrieve my mail reliably.

Thanks for your replies guys, I'll look into Zoho and see if more or less meets my requirements

I've been using TypeApp for iOS for about 2 years now & it's excellent.  They now have a Windows desktop app in beta which is available for download.

I've tried a number of different email clients over the years. I keep going back to Thunderbird. Still has support for both IMAP and POP, so compatibility should be good either way you want to use it.
