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.

"GREAT PRODUCT ACTUALLY. BUT!"

January 16, 2014  |  By D8UKNOW

 |  Version: eM Client 5.0.17595

Pros

SUPERIOR EMAIL!! Technically-strong features that work. 'Overall' visual- Superior to most. Works fast, Efficient. EASY to config. BUT!

Cons

For ALL that it is technically, just CANNOT/WILL NOT rate as superior for one reason: The COMPANY behind it. Deceptive MArketing Practices and truly lack of even 'basic' Sales team for Support, MArketing. e.g., Needs a License to run 'FREE'?!! And what happens after that year -after ur vested in that Product? Shuts down unless u buy? GOTCHA!!! I think so, yet NEVER got a response back -after several emails to several different addresses. Finally realized: THYE DONT CARE!!! Combined with other markteing/support probs tell me "STAY AWAY FROM THIS PRODUCT!!"

Summary

While I Rate the Product itself SUPERIOR -it could easily become #1 Email in the Country if not for the Company behind it. My suggestion to them: Keep up the good work on the email side. FIRE the President -get one that understands the vlaue of basic marketing/support -FREE r not!

PS: Surprised DOWNLOAD.COM never mentioned any of this in their own critique, as its certainly relevant.

"Good but far from perfect"

December 28, 2013  |  By mb208

 |  Version: eM Client 5.0.17595

Pros

Clean quick installation. Groups emails into neat categories. Customisable. Low memory useage.

Cons

Couldn't open html links in my default browser (kept getting error messages). I have had to prevent it being my default email client because of this. No choice when it comes to changing notification sounds or pop-up templates.

Summary

A good email client, but needs further work.

"Good and bad"

December 28, 2013  |  By system-mcitc

 |  Version: eM Client 5.0.17595

Pros

After reading few reviews I try to give it a shot. Here is what I learn ( I mark with numbers 10 best 1 worst ):

Cons

See summary

Summary

- Setup: 8
- Design interface: 5
- interface Interaction: 5
- Setup Google Calendar: 8
- Settings: 6
- Backup: 6
- Change Backup settings: 2
- Futures: 4

I know that reviews are subjective to human interest and preference.
We spend $50 to comeback to Thunderbird. Probably well money spend.

"Good, but very slow database fix if computer crashes"

December 20, 2013  |  By cesarinternational

 |  Version: eM Client 5.0.17595

Pros

The interface is well distributed, organized, pleasing to use and work with. The program works well. It provides the ability of chatting with your contacts in a separate window and saving the chats. I recommend Mozilla Thunderbird as the first choice for email (excellent performance and no adversisements) and second Incredimail (this one has advertising, but allows for many email accounts). eM Client as the third or fourth choice.

Cons

Major drawback is that if the computer is turned off unexpectedly, if the application is closed improperly then it runs an utility that checks for errors in its database, the consistency of the data. The problem is that it is very time consuming: it could take an hour or more and the computer then runs very slow while the utility runs. You can close the utility, but then you will probably not have access to the email program (I always let the utility run), to your emails.

Another major drawback is that the free version limits you to a maximum of two email accounts.

Summary

Good if you have a maximum of two email account and do not intend to get more. Good if your computer hardly crashes and you do not have problems that turn off the computer unexpectedly or you do not get many emails, do not have large number of emails in the account that will slow down data recovery if the computer crashes.

"Free OK but Pro worthless"

September 19, 2013  |  By elderone1

 |  Version: eM Client 5.0.17595

Pros

Creative interface to manage emails

Cons

Pro does not permit more than two send accounts.
Pro could not set up more than three receive accounts
Enterprise support consists of one person, 10 time zones away.
Support person unable to address issues
On Win8 and AVG2014, it thinks connection is encrypted, which it confirmed not to be encrypted.
Thoroughly frustrating, and went back to old reliable Outlook

Summary

The free version of eM Client may work for some people who do not have more than two email addresses. However, do not get sucked into buying what is advertised as the licensed "Pro" version. There is no evidence of increased functionality through paying for the "Pro" version. You just get a "deactivate-activate" button. I just got further insulted by getting, as a "valued user", an offer to upgrade to the Pro version including the promised free upgrade to version 6 all for half the price I just paid to buy my licensed Pro version! The support team consists of one person located 10 time-zones east of their Sunnyvale, California business address. Unless you enjoy staying up past 2:00 AM to exchange unhelpful emails, recognize that this so-called "enterprise" service does not service any enterprise. Furthermore, the fact that eM Client discovers your entire contact list, even on a new, bare computer without your input worries me. That is unlike MS Outlook, for which you have to import a private pst file to add your contacts.

"best desktop client for the Google universe"

September 10, 2013  |  By seasidepb

 |  Version: eM Client 5.0.17595

Pros

Seamless integration with Google contacts/calendar/tasks
Nice interface and excellent daily management tools
Complete PIM functionality out of the box
Easy selective archiving and folder management

Cons

No whitelisting options for HTML display
Price could be slightly lower (though far better value than Outlook)
UI, though better than most, could still be improved.
Windows only (lack of a usable PIM is one of the things that keeps me away from Linux)

Summary

I have searched long and far for an alternative to Outlook, which for single users is hopelessly inflexible. Since getting an Android smartphone (and Nexus tablet) I'm also for the moment at least committed to the Google clouds... and nothing else I've tried comes close to eM Client (and no I've not received any money from them to write this). I've been using it for two years ... have never had any problems with data corruption ... Thunderbird - some nice features but it looks like a dog's dinner. Postbox... looks nicer but the developers seem to have given up and the Google integration is clunky ... Foxmail... great if you're Chinese ... Incredimail... I'm not in kindergarten. eM Client is not perfect - the tasks management could still be slicker, the toolbar design needs some attention, and I don't want to have click "download images" every single time I'm looking at a mail from a trusted source. I used to get a lot of connection error messages though they seem to have stopped. But in every other respect eM Client delivers everything it promises, and please don't complain about the limitations of the free version... good software deserves our support, and though I don't think $50 is at all unreasonable for what it does, take that down to $40 guys and I think a lot more people would be signing up ...
