eM Client is a free email client software designed for Windows. The tool comes with interesting features, such as calendars, contacts, and tasks, and it can be easily handled by users of any level of experience.
There are three different themes to choose from and when you have chosen a look for your client you then have the option of importing from your current client. If you have been previously using Outlook or Thunderbird, you can quickly be importing any accounts you have set up to save having to do it from scratch.
eM Client can be used with many different types of email account, but it is particularly suited to use with Gmail. In quick setup mode, you need to provide nothing more than your email address and password and, where possible, all of your details will be pulled in for you. If this does not work for any reason, you can configure Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail and other accounts by hand.
This program isn’t just a simple email client, but also a task organizer, calendar system and a contact management application. To boot, it also synchronizes with the likes of Google Calendar and essentially supports Gmail, too.
Setup for eM Client is swift and uncomplicated. Probably one of the most useful features of this program is the fact that it supports many of Google’s services and allows you to check Gmail from your desktop. It also supports iCloud, Apple Server and IceWarp.
In addition to full support for rich text editing and scheduling, It also has an excellent search engine. Due to its support for other services and its beautiful layout, eM Client blows some of the other popular email clients out of the water.
The user interface is very clean, modern-looking, customizable and intuitive. The software comes with localization to 19 languages and 10 colorful themes. The default “Modern” theme one is really good but you can change it according to your color preferences. A left sidebar gives you access to your email accounts, calendar, tasks and contacts and that one is always visible while the right one can be hidden and you can use it to access contact details, agenda, and chat. The chat can be detached to a separate window if needed and it supports three major messaging services: Google Talk and Facebook and Jabber and offers file transfers.
Reading and sending emails is pure joy. You can have your Messages Panel on the left or at the bottom or disabled and in that case when you open a new message it will appear in a new window. Searching is really fast and gives accurate results. Some of the nifty features are delayed (scheduled) email sending, full spell-checker, email templates and signatures, message encryption and creating email groups that where you can add more people that you want to email at the same time. This can be very useful and can save you a lot of time.
The only downside is it’s higher memory usage (compared to the Thunderbird for example), but overall the latest version is an impressive email client with tons of features. It is free for personal use for up to two email accounts. If you need more than two accounts (or if you need it for business use) you’ll have to buy a premium version and trust me on this one: money spent on the tool will be money very well spent.
