For us mobile users the ability to set up and save multiple smtp mail server separate from the incoming POP or IMAP server would be great. This would work like the Thunderbird e-mail client.
When I move from client to client I can use their wireless but with eM-client changing smtp servers means I have to modify my mail account instead of just selecting an already saved smtp server from the list.

SMTP still fails on Verizon.
Same settings work on Outlook, Thunderbird, KomaMail, and any other client I've tried.
I hoped this would be fixed in version 3!

Hi.
We need to get the communication logs that will show us where exactly problems happen. Here are the instruction on how to get them:

1) Create directory "C:\Temp"
2) Download the MailClient.exe.config.zip file from http://www.emclient.com/tools/System.... and extract it into eM Client directory ("C:\Program Files\eM Client\" or "C:\Program Files (x86)\eM Client\" depending on your system)
3) Run eM Client, it will create the log file in C:\Temp\eMClientTrace.log

Please follow the steps above and send us the eMClientTrace.log file. All your privacy will be preserved. The address is kovalcik@emclient.com.
Thanks.

Have you made it so Calendar reminders can be set earlier than 2 days prior? (And yes, I know Tasks can be set that way; I'm not asking about those.)
I realize you got that 2 day thing from Outlook, but it has no clear correlation to reality. (Really, there's no event that requires more than 2 days notice? Because I can think of hundreds--conferences, weddings, etc.)

Yes, now reminder can be set up to 2 days. In version 3.1 there will be longer period.

Milos, Thanks for the response. So when will 3.1 be out, and what sort of longer periods will be available for calendar notifications?

Version 3.1 will be out in couple of months. But maybe this change will be included in the one of the patches (in this case it would be sooner). Particular ranges are under consideration. What would you suggest?

What happens to a stable version 3.0? Now we are talking about version 3.1!

In version 3.0 will be maximum period 2 days. Longer period will be added in version 3.1 or as I said in the patch to the version 3.0. Is it clear now?

Sorry to have confused anyone. Milos, thanks for asking. Ideally, total flexibility over setting reminders would be nice, but I don't know how that would be done gracefully. At a minimum, I would think that 1-7 days (or 1-10), 2 weeks, 1 month, and maybe 3 months would be a good place to start. (In addition to all the shorter intervals that already exist of course). 6 months couldn't hurt either...some things are definitely big enough to require preparing 6 months ahead. :-) Really looking forward to that change--the 2-day limitation in Outlook has been bothering me for more than a decade, literally.

How do Communications History & Contacts link to email messages?

Communication History appears to be linked to a Contacts email address and seems to be case sensitive.

I have received emails where, for some unknown reason, the case of senders email address has changed. Now the email address that is stored with the Contact doesn't match the email address in the message. This results in multiple groups for the same person when grouping by "From" field and items not showing in the Communication History due to the case difference.

Any chance of making this linking feature ignore case so this doesn't happen?

I'm currently evaluating eM Client as a replacement for MS Outlook at my company and certain it will become our default email package!

Thanks,

John

It seems the Global Inbox is no longer showing (1) all of my accounts or (2) e-mails as they arrive (which do show in the specific account's folder).

Can you be more specific please? We have tried to reproduce the problem with version 3.0.9517.0 by using the search bar in the agenda view and that seemed to work correctly. Could you please tell us the exact steps that led to the problem? Thanks

I have version 3.0.9422.0 running on Win7 SP1.When I go to Mail,Contacts,and Tasks,there is a search bar near the top of the window.When I go to Calendar,there is no search bar.By going through the tabs at the top of Calendar-Day,Week,Month,etc-I found the search bar when I clicked on Agenda.I tried several searches.The only words the search will find are the 1st word in an event.If I go back to the Mail,Contacts,or Tasks view,the word I searched on in Calendar(Agenda)shows up in the search bar.

Hello,
searching in calendar is possible when Agenda tab is chosen. Is it not the bug. Searching for words contained (not only from beginning) in "Summary" and "Description" will be possible in next upgrade.

How did it get so screwed up in this version?It worked fine in version 2.I'm not sure what you mean by "summary" and "description",but I need a searchable calendar.If I were able to remember the first word of every entry I made in my calendar(in order to search),I wouldn't need a calendar at all.I would have perfect memory recall.

Is there a link to download version 2.7? I can't wait several days. I need to roll back some computers which I upgraded to Version 3.1. Unfortunately I upgraded these PC's without testing the calender search. I have a client that schedules patients using the eM Client Calendar function with iCal 2. When they need to search for a patient's appointment time they would simply search by name in the search field. Due to this loss of functionality, the business is losing productivity and is completely unhappy at the moment. Although the search will still remain in the Agenda tab, I would suggest keeping a search field in a more convenient location, such as the previous version. I don't know the difficulty level of including this function, but I believe this is used more than the developers previously thought. Thank you.

Here is the link you asked for:
http://www.emclient.com/dist/v2.7.877...

But it won't work with database from version 3 which you already ran. If you have a backup of the database form version 2.7 you could replace it.

Hello,
I wanted to ask if the above function can soon be created because the decision rests on a program.

Thank you

Hi,
you can edit message when it's in Drafts or if you reply/forward it.

Notes will be maybe implemented in one of future versions. Meanwhile you can use the workaround: Get the generated code of the notepad widget from e.g. widgetbox.com and save it at your computer to e.g. c:/notesWidget.html . Then create new web widget in eM Client which will link to "file:///C:/notesWidget.html" location. I tested one from http://www.widgetbox.com/widget/notep... , it worked great.

Regards
