I use Mail (Windows app). There is a bug in this app: obsolete emails addresses are still offered in auto-complete. On forums, people began talking about this bug in 2016....Microsoft hasn't corrected that one....

For privacy, definitely yes.

Also the minimal windows app doesn't support enigmail add-on / gpg itself

And the windows app can't send mail in plaintext and also just add unneeded useragent info
Could you send to configuredefender@outlook.com some examples of emails that could be problematic in Windows Mail? I would like to test Windows Mail a little more. Normally I do not use email clients, but I test Windows Mail for two weeks and did not notice any issues.
Do you think that the lack of the above features can be important for the average users?:)(y)

Done. (y)

I guess average user's doesn't need GPG or plaintext mail, but are we average user's here? ;)

As i wrote in the mail, i can make a useragent comparison to Thunderbird if you answer the mail.

In my opinion, these are a lot of unnecessary transmitted data.

I can see the same about your mail when I use <More> <View Source> in Thunderbird.
But, there is no such feature in Windows Mail.

I prefer mailbird but between the 2 you mentioned I would use thunderbird.
Didn't know about it but looks pretty good.
I was a long term Thunderbird user, but about 1/2 years ago I switched to web Gmail, basically because of problems with large attachments on Thunderbird. I tried Outlook included on 365 and didn't like it either.
About Mailspring, is there a way that on inbox just important messages are displayed? Just as normal Gmail does I mean
Thanks!
