Recommendations for e-mail clients to use with Comcast e-mail

I'm going to move to another e-mail client to use as the front-end for my comcast e-mail.  I have seen recommendations for Thunderbird.  Do you recommend others?  Can gmail be the front-end for comcast e-mail?

 

Thanks for any suggestions.

Thunderbird is a client that can be set up to use multiple email accounts and, like Firefox, you can use add-ons with it. 

 

Gmail is an email service like Outlook.com, Yahoo! mail, Aol mail, etc.  You can use an email client to pull gmail for your gmail account. 

 

Most any email client, free or paid, that can be set up for POP and/or IMAP would serve you well, depending on the features you want.

 

As far as Thunderbird goes, I have 12 email addresses set in it.

Thanks for the info.  Does Thunderbird integrate well with Comcast?  Do they stay in synch?  Any problems with messages falling through the cracks?  Thanks again.
