When I think of email client I think of a program on my computer dedicated for email. For example the client I use is Claws Mail.

As for the above list. I have accounts with Gmail, Outlook and Yahoo Mail. All accessed via Claws Mail. Those three are also accessed about one a week to check spam for legit emails via there web interface.

About a week ago I purged my cell phone of all social media apps, that included apps for those big three.

Not real sure about the difference between Outlook, Outlook.com and Windows Live Mail (Windows Client?).

I own a Samsung and not sure of this Samsung client. Is this perhaps the preinstalled email app?

There's no way they can determine that! They use tracking images, which Gmail.com and Outlook.com download on their server so the client never does.

They don't name things correctly, it should always be Platform-Program. The android app is called Gmail, which includes the old Email app. Samsung and Fire's app is based on ASOP Email too.

The correct #1 is Android Gmail, which is on 10 billion devices! More than everthing else combined.

That list is from Litmus, an email marketing company. What they are showing is the percentage of email opens they are seeing using their analytics software. So, it is very different from what apps people have installed. I used to work for an email marketing company and we also tracked email opens. Our clients were heavily in the professional association and government agency areas, and opens tended to be 90+% on Apple devices or iOS. That was worldwide, not just in the USA. This website provides a lot of email statistics: https://www.emailmonday.com/mobile-e...ge-statistics/

Tracking email opens? This can only be done from a web base client or a client that allows beacons or images through?

Fairly certain there is no way anyone can determine when I open and email on my client Claws Mail.

Very few people block all images or use Claws Mail. Not enough to skew the statistics. Litmus tracks many millions of emails sent every day. Read about how they do it here: https://help.litmus.com/article/127-...-actually-work

Using a couple of different image bugs, along with our deep knowledge of how email clients work (and some very clever server-side manipulation of data), we're able to track a much wider range of actions that just the open. We can tell if someone read the message, forwarded it, printed it, what email client they used, whether they were on a mobile device, and so on.
