eM Client Reviews

about eM Client · ·

Whilst persevering with our never-ending seek for a reliable and worthwhile email client for Windows machines, we (for the second time) gave eMClient another go expecting good things of course, because it is paid software...

I found the software very slow at switching between emails making it unusable for business use but after reporting problems in their support forum and reaching out to them via Twitter, their customer support was appalling, in fact, I'd go as far as saying pretty much non-existent.

All I (and many other users) wanted was acknowledgment of the problem(s) and for someone to pipe up and say it is being addressed but no, literally nothing in the slightest.

They seem happy to continue charging for their software but don't want to look after their customers or even entertain the idea that there may be a problem.

On this basis alone, I'd strongly recommend avoiding buying and using this software.

"OK" program but no PGP support

about eM Client · ·

Its UI is good looking but unfortunately it does not support PGP only the "industry standard" S/MIME. Only 1% of my mail recipients use S/MIME so I can't use it. Sad because EM is really promising... at least their free version.

A very good "hub" application

about eM Client · ·

A very good IMAP client particularly in our case where we use Google Calendar and Contacts against our own IMAP server. All calendars and contacts are automatically included setting up just the account and nothing else. The extremely smooth installation is, however, also the most prominent drawback. Special settings are simply not there, e.g. timeouts for server connections, custom keyboard shortcuts and other not so daily options. Particularly timeouts can be a drag, since this effectively makes the client unusable if you are connecting from a less than optimum hotel room or a congested public wifi hot-spot. There are a few glitches and bugs but nothing too serious. All in all a very good and cleverly conceived mail client with a few dings.
