What is "Email Client"?

An email client is the software that will curate your email correspondence and notify you to new messages. Most smartphones come with a proprietary client that is either installed by the manufacturer or comes as part as the software platform. There are also numerous third party cross platform email clients that can be downloaded as applications.
