eM Client manages multiple e-mail accounts well, but its free version is limited by how many accounts it can support. It makes up for it with abundant style, a relatively easy setup, and great features, though.
This program behaves like a typical e-mail manager, akin to Outlook or Thunderbird. In addition to letting you manage multiple e-mail accounts, eM Client will organize your calendar, meetings, contacts, and more for you so you don't have to think about it. You can get right to work with this client by inserting your e-mail and letting it slowly populate all of the rest of the information it needs. It has a widget for most of the popular e-mail providers and even lets you import from other clients like Outlook. It usually works without a hitch, but it may give you some difficultly if you have two-step verification on the account you're trying to set up. The program only accepts two accounts if you use the free version, so you'll need to upgrade to Pro if you want unlimited accounts. Either way, the program sports a gorgeous layout that supports color-coding and multiple themes. There's even a built-in chat that supports ICQ, Jabber, Yahoo, and most of the other popular IM clients.
eM Client is so loaded with features that it's easy to forget it only supports two accounts. While this could be a burden for some, others won't have a problem. If you're happy with that limitation, this program rewards you with a stylish layout and plenty of control over your accounts.

Nice at first, but what happened to me is absolute horror.
This email client and the company that made it are the shittiest ever. This software is WAY too susceptible to database corruption. Every time you shut down your computer while eM Client is running it will have to check the database and sometimes even repair it. I read that running computer backup software might make your database corrupt, and a couple of days ago a windows update made my eM Client crash. Result: database corrupt and irreparable. I had potentially lost 3 years of work emails and hundreds of contacts.
When I contacted eM Client support they gave me the shittiest customer support answer I have ever seen in my life: "Well, from the log it is clear that the database got corrupted by 3rd party application thus I cannot provide you with any solution, I am very sorry. "
Whaaaaaaaatttt??? So because a 3rd party application (Windows Update) made eM Client crash you cannot help me??? Not our fault so live with it and f...ck off?
Luckily after LOTS of browsing on the internet I found a solution from another user who had experienced the same thing and found a fix. It was the easiest fix ever, but customer support couldn't even be bothered to help me because it was a 3rd party application that made eM client crash!! How is that for customer support, and for a company that is trying to present their product as perfect for business users?? If I hadn't been able to recover my emails this would have damaged me financially!!
Bye bye eM Client, I am leaving you and I'm never looking back!! I hope I convinced some other potential users to look away as well!!
Multiple accounts... faster sorting than browser clients such as gmail.
Horrible... I mean horrible ability to mark email as spam. Spammers have gotten tricky... sending things in languages like Finnish... they change the domain EVERY time. The em client does not allow a making of a domain... so even though you mark an email and/or a domain as spam... they change it... emaple is: all email is coming from baddomain.nz... they'll mark it #@FSDF#343.baddomain.nz... next time it will be from SDF$#%#SDFSsdkjfhsoiu.baddomain.nz... the eM client does all ow you to mark *.baddomain.nz as bad. You also can't create a rule from an email message. This is a big issue... and one that has me looking for another client.
If eM would allow for more robust spam filtering... I would rate this client as 5 stars... until then I will look for another client.
This is about eM Client 7.0 Pro, on a Win 7 Pro PC.
Installation went smoothly, as went the import of several thousands of mails from 8 accounts.
eMC's widget got accurately the connection settings for my mail servers and set them for IMAP and SMTP.
GUI is pleasant, uncluttered and light.
After a few days' use, I began getting a slowly growing number of 'ghost' or 'phantom' messages (i.e. DELETED messages still showing there, as well in the 'Smart Folders' as in accounts' Trash & Junk folders). A check showed that they were NO MORE in the servers' folders: so, IMHO, the bug should be in the client.
Besides, eMC 7 does not store mail as files in folders & sub-folders, but as 'data' bulks. While this might quicken searches, it makes recovery of data only possible 1) if your version of eMC is at hand 2) AND working, and 3) if you have regular backups equally at hand (preferably, on another device). This something to ponder about. I gave up the trial.
