As its name implies, eM Client is an email client designed for Windows. The tool comes with other interesting features as well, such as calendars, contacts and tasks. It can be easily handled by users of any level of experience. The interface of the app is clean and intuitive; you can set up a new account by inputting account, calendar and contact credentials, IMAP and SMTP details and chat settings. Plus, eM Client can diagnose problems which may occur with these options.
Information regarding the email accounts and content is divided into three separate panels, in order to provide you easy access. From the right side of the screen you can display the sidebar to view contact details and an agenda, as well as chat with friends (e.g. via the Facebook account associated with your email).
In addition, you can backup and restore data, import information from other apps (e.g. Microsoft Outlook, Mozilla Thunderbird, Windows Mail) or export it, as well as move items in other folders and use undo, redo and search functions.
Other features of eM Client allows you to categorize items by color, enable follow-up, create meetings or tasks from messages, as well as add contacts to your instant messaging services. But you can also send and receive files, manage a privacy list and add rules (e.g. move spam messages to the ‘Spam’ folder). From the ‘Settings’ section you can customize eM Client’s appearance, add new widgets, send or clear logs, enable to synchronize items at a specific time interval and make eM Client your default mail handler.
The program requires a high amount of system resources, has a good response time and includes user documentation. However, eM Client popped up some errors in our tests when attempting to connect to email accounts; it was unable to resolve them. Otherwise, eM Client offers a complete solution when it comes to managing multiple email accounts from one place.
