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.
Memory bloat of 250+ MB RAM for single Exchange account. Intermittent connectivity gives huge amount of noise.
The only alternative to Outlook that I could find with Exchange functionality, but unfortunately still a long way to go to replace it in a working environment. I found it slower than Outlook and somewhat unpolished. Uninstalled when I got back a reply from a partner asking why I was sending blank mail...
eM client is definitely a great piece of software for Windows. Four-stars for the Windows version.
Not so much for MacOS -- at least not yet. They should at least refrain from charging users (read: "Paying beta testers") until they have polished the product a little bit. Two-stars for the MacOS version. 3-stars overall because I cannot review each separately.
As for the Windows side of things, although it is a great product, I've had several bad experiences with them. I don't know exactly how, but surely they are collecting user information and who knows what else in order to determine whom they feel should need to pay for the service. All of a sudden the "Free" license is remotely deactivated. And I found that a friend that I recommended the product to previously, had their laptop's license "revoked" because they had used my Internet connection while visiting.
I use router-based VPN connections for privacy on my personal network so it leaves me to believe that the activation process involves more than just a machine hardware hash as generally is the case.
It is not without its' issues as a product even on the Windows platform -- primarily I found that it was prone to random disconnects requiring closing the client and opening again.
I would be much more comfortable and willing to purchase the professional version if the licensing and software protection were from a third party. Otherwise, where does the developer draw the line between sniffing your e-mail to identify "business" usage, and privacy that is expected within one's email?
Pros: Was able to correctly process more arcane IMAP account configurations, allowing me to readily access them. Dark theme available (but see cons)
Cons: Could not access O365 calendar or contacts. GUI dialog boxes for password need to tell you not just the username, but the account name as well, as it isn't always obvious. Keeps insisting one turns on the All Mail view for IMAP (not recommended by any other client) making it harder to evaluate or use different clients at the same time. Dark theme needed to lower the color on the background a bit more for better contrast (message list). When you don't have an email selected, you have a glaring white empty panel. Check boxes are very dim when selected, making it hard to know if you selected them. Overall, this is a human interface failure for the dark mode.
Two stars because it could handle IMAP, but the failure to implement O365 calendaring made it a show stopping failure for me.
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.
I'm still going to give it a go, but man, do I ever hate that shit.
very usefull when you have a lot of account, office 365, gmail, apple, imap, caldav
the free version only allows you to have 2 accounts. What's the point? I might as well have gone with the paid version of mailbird which was cheaper. You didn't show that there were limited accounts when I downloaded it.
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.
Now has full support for PGP since June 2017.
Well, version 8 is out, and I thought let's look at it, it's probably the most good looking windows mail app, easy to work and with lot of features like easy PGP encryption for example, so a new version number 8 completely redesign, let's look at it, and then the reality check:
It's slow as a snail, it takes forefer to startup,and I am using an SSD, then what really made me mad about it is the lack of privacy, we would think a mail app that comes with PGP integration would respect the privacy more, but then just to give an example: On emails it does not download HTML external web links by default to preserve privacy, well done, but then there's a completely stupid implementation that workd by default: Contacts AVATAR downloads from external sources, really!? There's should be a big warning over this, how does by default uploading your full contact list to an external entity is any good to protect your privacy?
Did I mentioned it takes forever to start?
Wow. So much to love; so much to hate.
I tried to get the client working with my IMAP server and OwnCloud hosted calendar. The interface is not really modular enough to do this well. It seems to assume you've got an all in one like Outlook or GMail. I had to go back to Thunderbird because this client didn't work fully. It's a shame, because the mail UI looks nice.
The application actually works very well with these services. The automatic setup works especially well with major providers, but for more custom solutions it is as simple as setting up each service individually, rather than using an automatic setup. There is also an exceptionally helpful forum where users of the Free License can get assistance with any issues they encounter.
I have a Office365 school account and it done all the configurations totally automatically.
Just inserted the username and password and after a few moments, everything was working out of the box.
