I’m in the process of moving all my Exchange and IMAP mail accounts to eM Client (using the beta 8 version). So far I have found eM Client to be the closest thing to just what I’ve been looking for to replace Outlook (for Exchange accounts) and Windows Live Mail (for IMAP and POP accounts).
However, there is one very basic feature in both Outlook and Live mail that I use constantly to evaluate the validity of links contained within questionable emails. That is the footer showing the actual link information (not just the text shown in the email body) when hovering over the link in the email body.
This to me isn’t just a nice to have feature, but instead a critical tool to help combat the spread of malware and other email scams. Emails can arrive claiming to be Amazon or eBay, or Google announcing my account has been locked and I should click on the link to provide important information to re-activate my account.
When using Outlook or Live Mail I can hover my mouse cursor over the link and the actual link information is displayed in the footer of the application. that way I can see if the link is actually going to where it says it’s going before clicking on it.
This critical item seems like it would be something very easy to implement in eM Client either in a footer, or as a hover popup item, or even having an option to show it in the right click pop up menu.
In any case I respectfully request the devs consider finding a way to provide users with an easy inline way to display this critical information.
This stopped working in version 8 (8.0.3385 using imap)
When opening a mail in a separate windows (using double click) em client displays the full link in the footer. But mail preview in the main window (without double click) doesn’t always show the full link. Some links will show up in the footer - others don’t (in the same email).
Most prominent affected mails are notifications from paypal. Links in the top of the mail will show up - the ones on the bottom will now show.
