I am running eM client 7.2.36908 as a possible replacement for Windows Live Mail. I am getting repeated client application errors with the text “An error has occurred in the application which prevents it from continuing”. When the program restarts it fails again. I saved the error file which is huge (191k) . Upon restart a check for corrupted database and inconsistent data occurs with no errors and then the application fails immediately.
Fortunately I had a recent backup of the eM client database folder and I was able to use it without any errors. The last thing I did before the application failed was to send an email to my iCloud account which is causing problems in Windows Live Mail.
Yes sending an email from my iCloud account via eM client causes the application to fail. I can use other platforms such as Apple mail via iPhone and iCloud.com web mail via Google Chrome and send iCloud email without problems.
Yes does sound like the @icloud domain settings have some compatibility issue with emclient. My only suggestion would be to eg: forward the iCloud account to a Gmail acct and pick that up with emclient till that issue is resolved. You can put your iCloud email address as the default reply address in emclient when sending.
I had to do a similar thing with my live.com and hotmail accts as they just would never work correctly with emclient no matter what IMAP settings i tried. Hopefully emclient future updates might fix iCloud issues.
I have noticed that my IMAP accounts are getting duplicate emails in the Sent folder for each email sent using the eM Client. So I disabled the “Save copy of sent messages to Sent folder” mail setting.
After this change I no longer have eM Client application crashes when sending mail from my iCloud account !! No more error loops ! Happy new year.
