Hire is a cross-platform desktop email client built for the Microsoft email ecosystem with a modern look, feel, and support for Microsoft Exchange, Office 365, and more.

It is a natural alternative to Microsoft Office. Although most people don’t use email clients on Linux machines, this one is a great program when using Ubuntu or other supported Linux desktops.

This brief tutorial will show students and new users how to install the Hiri email client on Ubuntu 16.04 / 17.10 and 18.04 desktops.

You get to try Hiri for seven days. And if you need it, purchase a license to use it.

Hiri also supports other email platforms and is great for Gmail as well.

The free version should be more than enough if you’re using the client to send and receive emails.

Below are two options available when installing Hiri on Ubuntu desktops. You can select either one to get it installed.

Install its Archive Package

To install Hiri using its archived package, go to this link below. Then, click and download it to your desktop. The download package includes a binary build of Hiri with all the dependencies included, so you don’t have to install anything else.

Download and save the file to your desktop, usually in your Home directory’s ~/Downloads folder.

Hiri Ubuntu install

After downloading, navigate to your Downloads folder using the commands below and install.

$ cd ~/Downloads
$ tar xf Hiri.tar.gz
$ cd hiri
$ ./

Follow the wizard to log in to your email. Once you’re in, you can create a desktop launcher to start Hiri more quickly from your desktop environment. Next, you should get a prompt to enter your email address.

Install the Hiri Snap Package

Hiri can also be installed via Ubuntu snap package management. This might be the quickest way to install Hiri.

To install via Snap, run the commands below

sudo apt install snapd
sudo snap install hiri

That’s it!
