Anyone knows of a good email client for Linux besides the UI outdated Thunderbird?

You should try Geary, it looks modern and sleek, it has most features people need, besides being fast.

 

Another favorite with all the bells and whistles is Mailspring, super modern looking, but a little more heavy.

 

You can tweak Thunderbird to make it look much better than its default look though, but I agree, even then it looks outdated.

 

Regarding Linux distros my favorite these days is Pop!_OS for sure, been using it for the last 2 years.

Thunderbird isn't outdated, you know. It's still being worked on.

 

But as said above, try Geary.

I think he means mostly visually, which Thunderbird isn't the prettiest thing and does even feel a bit dated with themes.

A program can be in active development but that has nothing to do with having an updated UI.

What difference do you see?

Mailspring is popular but it's a bit controversial.  Some advanced features require you to have your mail pass through a server of theirs but its optional.

I probably late here and I know what I have in mind is sort of a halfway house between a web browser window and a full on email client, but I sort of like Vivaldi's built-in email client.
