All messages from my Gmail account are very slow to load. Running a very fast windows 8 machine and version 5.x.

Checking the download messages box didn’t seem to help in the 1st 1.5 hours I tried. The dots run across from left to right with each new message for a minute or two before the message loads.

What version are you using? I need to know the exact number e.g. 5.17944. Thank you.


I am also experiencing the same situation.

My client version is 5.0.18861.0


try this version… but core of this issue can be in something else than in eM Client.

Anyway try this version and then write here if it did help.
