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.

"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.
