Test: eM Client 8 Pro – desktop mail program


eM Client 8 is a real alternative to Thunderbird and Outlook. We show what the tool can do.

E-mail programs have a tough time in the shadow of Microsoft Outlook and Windows Mail. Clever functions and operation are required to reach newcomers and those switching from Outlook. And right here sets

eM Client 8 Pro
on. The mail client recognizes the installed Outlook and imports the POP3 and IMAP accounts set up there with all settings and messages.

The surface is based on the Microsoft program with its three-part division: on the left the favorites and accounts, in the middle the message list and on the right the preview. The list of functions of eM Client 8 for mails, tasks, calendar and contacts is at least equal to Outlook.

The common inbox for all mail accounts should be emphasized, and the direct support of cloud services for file attachments is also brilliant. If you select a file from Dropbox, Microsoft OneDrive or Google Drive, eM Client 8 can insert a download link. This saves space and relieves the mailbox.

The direct translation function in the message preview is outstanding. If eM Client 8 recognizes a foreign language mail, a single click of the mouse is enough. Other highlights are the full text search, notes with cross-device synchronization, PGP encryption and the tracking functions.
