Default Outlook or Thunderbird?

Im wanting to start using a POP3 client for my email, and I want to know what program is better? Microsoft's Outlook Express or Mozilla Thunderbird? Sorry for the noob question, its just I've never used a client before believe it or not...all i've had is webmail.

I have found that Thunderbird is easier to use. Outlook is great for all the add ons. Calander and the whole 9 but Thunderbird has been the best for just an email client.
I do not accept support questions via EMail, PM, IM or my G+ page!

Phone: LG Optimus G Pro
Running: Stock JB from LG with Nova Launcher

Thunderbird is more robust and user-friendly than Outlook Express.
