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.

"Excellent Program, Tried Them All & Chose eM Client"

July 08, 2016  |  By ln899

2016-07-08 07:43:11  |  By ln899

 |  Version: eM Client 6.0.24144

Pros

Clean interface, works with Gmail flawlessly, does everything I need. Good technical support on forum and, for Pro users, on an individual basis. I purchased the Pro version to support development.

Cons

Need to store distribution lists in "Local Folders," not in your Gmail account.

Summary

Try it, it's free. In my experience, it's the best desktop client for Gmail.

"Grateful for an alternative to Outlook but disappointed"

May 20, 2016  |  By tpendarakis

2016-05-20 09:53:43  |  By tpendarakis

 |  Version: eM Client 6.0.24144

Pros

An alternative to Outlook, which crashed my computer;
Duplicate message remover

Cons

Horrible search function;
Does not sync with iPhone unless using an online calendar like Google Calendar;
Responsive tech support before the sale but NOT after;
Calendar items did not transfer accurately from Outlook

Summary

eM Client was the best alternative to Outlook that I could find and I am grateful to have it. But overall I am not as happy with this product as I had expected to be. The search function is awful, very slow and inaccurate. Calendar items all transferred from Outlook to the first day of the corresponding month in eM Client. I had to start using an online calendar to make calendar entries because entries into eM Client would not sync to my iPhone. I did purchase eM Client. Tech support after the trial period has been non-responsive.

"Not what it's presented to be"

February 27, 2016

2016-02-27 08:16:39

 |  Version: eM Client 6.0.24144

Pros

Comprehensive set of features

Cons

Although eM Client has all of the features that one would need, tasks, calendar, etc. It under performs in the critical areas in a Windows 10 environment. The problem appears to revolve around dealing with large inboxes and folders. Try a search function on a folder or inbox that contains a large number of its. Rating: poor

Summary

Not recommended based on its poor overall performance in the critical areas.

"Outstanding email client"

February 27, 2016  |  By gbloomquist

2016-02-27 07:03:26  |  By gbloomquist

 |  Version: eM Client 6.0.24144

Pros

Elegant (very attractive interface and much nicer Calendar than either Google or Lightning for Thunderbird) / Fast (I left Thunderbird because it was getting slower and slower) / Seamless interaction with Google (Gmail, Calendar, Contacts) / Easy to manage / Easy Contacts list to manage / Through Google perfect synchronization with Blackberry 10 OS

Cons

I have not found any yet.

Summary

Since leaving Lotus Smart Suite Calendar at the turn of the 2000s, I have been looking for a Calendar and Agenda that were nearly as good as Lotus. I have now found that... and to top it off, it is combined with a fantastic email client. Perfect combination for me.

Cons

None that I've encountered

This is the best email software out there. You need to try it.

"Brilliant substitute for bloated Outlook"

December 18, 2015  |  By MarcLeSparc

2015-12-18 02:03:43  |  By MarcLeSparc

 |  Version: eM Client 6.0.24144

Pros

I have run eM Client for two years, and I simply cannot fault it. It integrates well with Google calendar and Contacts, the Calendar system generally works well and it's been rock-steady stable. Don't even think about using the free version - it's fine, but what kind of person won't pay £30 for a full-feature email client?

Cons

I can think of nothing at all that I do not like about eM Client.

Summary

I ran Thunderbird for a while but it is full of bugs and doesn't even come close to eM Client as a stable email platform. And no, I don't work for eM Client - I am just 100% satisfied with this software.
