I don't use either of those, but I do use Thunderbird (which is listed in that article) on Ubuntu Linux. Thunderbird works fine, but it was a bit of a hassle getting all my Outlook PST files imported into Thunderbird. That was a few years ago, so perhaps the procedure has improved by now.

If you are still wanting a desktop solution I have used Thunerbird and really liked it. Currently using Office365 and using OWA, haven't had any issues with it but not sure that addresses your problems.
However most of my email correspondence is on IOS mail app (dabbling with OWA app) and Gmail app on Iphone or Ipad. So my experience with desktop solutions is getting less and less each year.
Grad school transitioned to Windows Live mail this past academic year, right in the middle of the year. I hated it. Went from a familiar Outlook UI to the very white, very blank Windows Live UI. That being said, I'm sure it works fine. I just normally check e-mail on my phone.
