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.

"Imperfect but highly serviceable"

June 18, 2015  |  By mulciberus

 |  Version: eM Client 6.0.21372

Pros

Does about everything one needs in a mail client. Cannot comment on its other functions. Reasonably fast, clean display, renders Asian languages well (v. important to some users).

Cons

Slow, clunky search. Functional but clumsy, roughly designed UI.

Summary

I tested a dozen clients before moving to eM Client. As I work for a foreign company, email is critically important, and this application exhibited the greatest number of strengths in a single package. Does almost everything well, without a lot of effort.

Big issue: cannot properly display mail from Apple mail clients - this may be a deal-breaker for many. Responded to repeated requests to fix this issue by saying that it was Apple's problem, and users should speak with them. Not kidding.

"too flawed to use"

June 03, 2015  |  By torinjames

 |  Version: eM Client 6.0.21372

Pros

It was working nicely for a few days, and it successfully loaded five years worth of emails.

Cons

But then it started having problems connecting dozens of times a day. Today it cracked and lost four years of emails.

Summary

This is not a program that anyone should rely on. I never had these problems with Outlook Express or Windows Live. Not only would I not recommend it, I would suggest that anyone using it stop using it immediately before it cracks.

"Better than any of its competitors (Pro version)"

May 20, 2015  |  By wipa1

 |  Version: eM Client 6.0.21372

Pros

Solid and straightforwarded, has all the features I expect from a professional email client

Cons

None so far (used 1month)

Summary

Before em Client Professional I used Windows Live Mail for years. It started to malfunction while fetching new mail, which couldn't be repaired.

I needed a program for several mail accounts, that's why the freeware version was not an option for me (it offers only 1 mail account, so I went straight for the Pro version.) Right after installation process the program imported very easily and correctly all the messages from Windows Live Mail's inboxes. The Sent mail was easy to import manually to the program. The programs GUI is very intuitive and minimalistic enough to be clear and visually attractive (several colour themes to choose from) . I have several POP3 accounts, a couple of IMAP accounts including Gmail and em Client Professional 6 is handling them all very nicely. So far the program has performed very well without any bugs or errors - I'm convinced the program is trustworthy.

I've also used The Bat! Professional before and it's a mess and buggy compared to this one. The program has a built-in backup feature, you can customize the backup folder, how often you want the backup to take place, how many copies are preserved, etc.

If the program needs to be configured to operate on several machines (like in my case in 3 different machines) you can configure all the settings, rules, contacts etc. at one computer and then copy the configuration and mail database just by copying one folder contents to other computers of the home network.

I purchased a copy of SoftMaker Office Professional 2012 which included eM Client Professional 6 and a license allows it to be installed into 3 computers.

I only use the programs email functions, but it has as well Calendar and other bells and whistles; it's after all developed to replacement for Outlook.

"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.
