Editors' Review

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.

"My Preferred Email Client (I purchased pro)"

November 15, 2014  |  By floief

 |  Version: eM Client 6.0.20489

Pros

eM Client, for me, is the best choice. I've used the pricy clients and the free ones, even the most popular ones. I think eM Client has the best feature set for what I need while being light on system resources and, yes, quite attractive. I especially like the way it handles and displays my contacts. There is also a "Widget" feature that allows me to connect to my favorite online "sticky" notes and sharing site. The calendar syncs with Google, which is a must. Tasks sync too. I can set rules for email allowing for automatic filing and also categories.

Cons

Not enough skin choices or options to change colors of various parts of the program.

Summary

Has all the features that I need to organize multiple email inboxes, tasks and contacts and the bonus of connecting to my online "sticky" note board while being light on system resources

"Major issues"

October 22, 2014  |  By 7LaVerne

 |  Version: eM Client 6.0.20489

Pros

1. Great support
2. Ability to block domains as well as email addresses

Cons

1. Contents of contacts folders keep disappearing
2. Number of emails in all folders not visible
3. Kept asking for password in an account that is not protected and then would not accept it. Messages stay in Outbox.

Summary

I gave it about two weeks but just removed it from both my computers.

"Best mail client of all the mail programs"

June 28, 2014  |  By bunnybones

 |  Version: eM Client 6.0.20489

Pros

Easy to use
Not a stripped-down freebie
Has excellent email module with excellent HTML insert feature
Email send/receive functions work without problems
Includes Calendar, Contacts, and Tasks (I don't use much)
Actively supported and updated

Cons

Minor stuff including some quirks

Summary

I've used this 2 weeks on a WIN XP SP3 system with no problems. I prefer this as a mail client over all the other mail clients--all of which tend to be too basic or too complicated. The one thing that bugs me is the email signature manager won't insert the signature automatically into your email body; you have to remember to insert it manually before you click SEND. I've tried all the others; this one is a keeper.

"Great Concept - Poor Performance"

June 09, 2014  |  By ZyanceBoy

 |  Version: eM Client 6.0.20489

Pros

Low cost alternative to Microsoft's monopoly. Feature rich. Excellent integration with popular email servers both POP and IMAP. Chat capabilities. Integration with 3rd party email data brokers like Fruux for easy integration/sync with Android devices.

Cons

The application performance degrades over time and crashes every few days. The longer you leave the email client up and active, the longer it takes to search through emails, the longer it takes to even send an email. Once it crashes, it goes through a 10-minute startup process of checking data integrity. It begins working good again after that delay and then begins degrading again over a few days. I keep 13 months history in my Inbox. I theorize that a smaller size Inbox would probably improve performance to some degree. Sometimes closing the app does not restore performance because sometimes the executable remains active in the task manager list. Killing the process results in the app performing that 10-minute startup integrity check. I have reported these problems to emClient's tech support on a number of occasions. They keep releasing new versions with lots of new features, but the same old performance and reliability problems.

Summary

If you don't mind closing your client on a routine basis (daily), and occasionally waiting for the data integrity check to complete, then this is a great email client. It would be much better if the development team would actually focus exclusively on performance and reliability for a change to stabilize the product. It would easily rate 4+ stars if performance and reliability weren't a concern.

Updated on Jun 10, 2014

Also has a nice calendar feature. I have mine synced with my Android device. Works well WITHOUT using Google as a middleman.
