Nice email client

2020-12-27

It worked well with the calendar and mostly it has very nice and clean design.

Pros

Setting up is pretty easy as it imported my email accounts from Windows mail.

Cons

If I bought 1 license for a 1-time price, why I wouldn't get future upgrades?

Mail box

2019-08-31

Overall experience so far is good as i am using it on daily basis.

Pros

1.It is easy to use interface. 2.It also offers calendar and contacts. 3.It also supports very easy way how to send encrypted mails using PGP, 4.It is very easy to import your data.

Cons

1.sometimes you are unable to get who is sending the mail , as it looks as a chain and you need to find out who is the actual sender. 2.we can add colums and rows easily. 3.It is unstable for business use. 4.it is for personal use only. 5.It takes so much of time to create a box or rectangle so that’s annoying.

The A Team of E-mail Client

2019-08-31

Now I only need to open my eM Client software and see all e-mail accounts in one integrated dashboard. There is no more hassle and productivity has increased manyfold during my use of this software.

Pros

You can add accounts for the majority of e-mail providers, create contacts and tasks, subscribe to internet calendars, use Google Hangouts directly from within the software without having to logging into your Gmail account, assign labels to e-mail threads with different colors.

Cons

It lacks official themes and seldom releases feature updates.

Good solution for managing complex, integrated email communications

2019-09-05

I am able to access my saved messages and folders without having to pull them from the cloud.

Pros

It allows me to organize my saved messages for easy retrieval and long-term record-keeping.

Cons

This problem has improved over time, but the program remains vulnerable to sudden shut-downs.

Very good and inexpensive alternative for Outlook users

2019-09-17

I use eM Client as an alternative to Outlook due to Outlook's lack of a unified Inbox for IMAP accounts. It handles all internal and external email correspondence well.

Pros

Unified inbox for IMAP accounts, which is not available in Outlook for Windows. Search function is excellent. Snippets are nice. Most of the basics will be familiar to Outlook users.

Cons

I could wish for more customizability of the UI and sounds.

Reliable email client

2019-10-07

We use our POP email accounts with eM Client and while some other clients have stopped syncing and required logging in again from time to time, eM Client has been very stable and reliable.

Pros

- customizable user interface - Task tracker is very helpful to follow up on emails - Easy to switch between email accounts - Easy to setup

Cons

- Auto-sync may not work sometimes - The user interface can look cluttered at times due to the lack of separation between the sidebar and the email content

Almost there...

2019-12-29

Overall a smart application: easy to use, fast to install, comprehensive.

Pros

While being similar to somewhat similar to Thunderbird it does not rely on third-party addons and provides native support for Google Calendars and Outlook.

Cons

Finally, the lack of third party addons also means that some functions (e.g. colors for individual accounts in the unified inbox) are simply not there, and you have to live with that.

Pros

Easy to use layout with all of the features I want in a combination email, calendar, contacts manager.

Stable and agile Communications Suite

2021-09-23

With emClient I can perform all the tasks of the company in one place, find contacts and manage emails with calendars at no cost.

Pros

It integrates all the basic needs to configure email accounts, calendars and company contacts. Simple and fast.

Cons

The backup system can get a bit tedious but it does the job. Importing from other solutions can be slow.

eM Client provides ease of use and multiple features.

2018-04-20

An easy to use email client for seniors.

Pros

The biggest thing I liked is it easily migrated Windows Live Mail. I am an IT consultant that was looking for a replacement for Windows Live Mail. eM Client's interface is fairly simple but powerful.

Cons

Sometimes the free license seems to "get lost" and has to be entered again. Without even the free license, the software will not communicate with email servers. Another glitch seems to be that recently one of the rep of eM Client sent out emails to many of my customers claiming they were not using the software for personal use. At first, I assumed it was a scam but it was legitimate. All of the customers that use this software are retired and are not using it for commercial purposes. I do not know if this is an attempt to have them pay for it even though they are abiding by the terms of the free use.

Cons

Nothing really, it all works as it should and there hasn't been any problems or things that I thought could be better, for me it is a solid piece of software.

Pricing can get high if you have multiple devices and above 50 devices you need to contact the sales team.

I So Wish It Worked!

2020-05-20

I would have chosen to go with this software if I could have counted on it to always send and receive.

Pros

It seemed to be the most feature-rich of all of the Outlook substitutes.

Cons

I think it would lose contact with the server.

This was a mistake

2018-12-21

This was a total waste of my money, and more importantly, my time.

Pros

It was supposed to solve the problem of Windows Live Mail being able to be transferred over to eM Client.

Cons

Not everything transferred over. Only stuff up to mid-2016. Anything from mid-2016, 2017 and 2018 didn't transfer.
