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.

"Never going to use this product again"

April 11, 2015  |  By bmalloy68

 |  Version: eM Client 6.0.21372

Pros

Not a single one based on my experience

Cons

Destroys your original files, make sure you have backups. I had thankfully, but even restoring them it corrupted the mail profiles on the PC. This product should NEVER use the existing files when importing it should create its own but instead it uses what you have (Outlook for example) and wipes everything and corrupts it. Could not use outlook again, could not get to email, once I got some email back could not use rules. terrible.. Never again! Wasted two days rebuilding outlook and my mail setup.

Summary

I wanted to test it not have is destroy everything I have built for the last 15 years. It completely corrupted the entire mail setup on my PC, destroying 15 years of outlook files. All rules, gone, all contacts, gone, EVERYTHING basically gone and had to start clean. Thank God for full backups. What product does not make its own copies of things. Move the files don't use what is already there for heaven's sake. Never touching this product again.

"Tried 'Em All - This is the Best for Gmail"

February 18, 2015  |  By ln899

 |  Version: eM Client 6.0.20489

Pros

Nice interface, ample options, perfect sync with Gmail. Hard to find a feature that is not already here. Add to this fast and friendly tech support. I'd highly recommend this program to anyone. In my view, well worth the price for the Pro version, which I have purchased.

Cons

The only thing I noticed was some problems syncing distribution lists created on different devices (desktop, laptop). The solution is to save your distribution lists locally.

Summary

First class, A++

"Outstanding Email Client!"

January 24, 2015  |  By Teachmelee

 |  Version: eM Client 6.0.20489

Pros

I have been using Windows Live Mail 2012 and simply got tired of having all my email synchronizing with SkyDrive. Who needs that?! I just want my attached images, videos etc. to go directly to the sender through POP3 email. I am computer I could care less about keeping my files in the cloud (stupid cloud).

Cons

None. My two account work great in the free version and I would easily upgrade to the pay-for version if I needed the added features and more than two account.

Summary

Kudos! You developers have made Thunderbird, WLmail and several others take a back seat to eM Client.

"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

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

Summary

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

"A Nicely Designed Email Client"

October 18, 2014  |  By marksan12

 |  Version: eM Client 3.0.9716

Pros

Integrates with Google contacts, tasks, calendar
Interfaces nicely to IMAP and POP3 email servers
A pleasant user interface

Cons

It's a nice program, for sure, but $49.99/year is excessive these days for non-commercial and more than 2 accounts (I use roadrunner and have a couple of Gmail accounts for personal use). A one-time $49.99 with lifetime upgrades might be palatable for personal use.

Summary

I was looking for a program that hooked up with my Google features like Thunderbird does. I've been using Thunderbird a long time. But ever since I started using RoadRunner's IMAP interface instead of POP3, Thunderbird just takes forever to start-up and just gets cranky. I'm pretty sure Time Warner's IMAP service is wonky somehow (I occasionally get some kind of authentication error from Thunderbird or eM Client). But eM Client seems to handle it much better and smoother. And the UI on eM Client is way more up to date (Thunderbird is fairly dated). However, given the cost of the eM Client for more than 2 accounts, I am not sure I can justify it for personal use. Especially since you have to keep paying for upgrades. I will be searching for another Thunderbird alternative but using the 2-account version of eM Client in the interim. If you only have one or two accounts, or if you were looking for a nice email client for business use, then I think eM Client is great.

"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.

"Perfect substitute for an old Outlook installation"

May 30, 2014  |  By geeman1082

 |  Version: eM Client 6.0.20310

Pros

Good feature set for Outlook users.

Cons

Licensing wasn't as smooth as it could have been.

Summary

My mom's XP PC was on its last legs, so we preemptively replaced it with a Windows 8 box (yeah, I know ... my bad). She had been using a copy of Office 97 for, well, a really long time and couldn't imagine using anything other than Outlook. Of course, Outlook 97 won't run on Windows 8. and she wasn't in a position to buy a new copy, so I did some research and, after trying Thunderbird first, came upon eM Client. At first I had trouble taking it seriously due to the goofy name, and my mom did have some trouble getting the licensing set up so that the software would quit bugging her about it, so I took another trip up there, wiped it off, and started from scratch using the experience from the first attempt, and it seems to working great now. It gives her access to her ISP email account and her gmail account, and syncs with her gmail contacts and calendar, so now her PC and phone are giving her the same information and she's very happy that eM Client gives her the same look, feel, and features as Outlook. Well done, guys.
