I am using TheBat and I’m thinking about changing to eM Client, so I am currently trying it for the first time (Version 7.1.3).
First, I like the eM Client and I think I really could get used to eM and I want to try to put some effort into making the migration from TheBat work.
I found some issues though, that you might help me with:
CardDAV Categories are shown, BUT Categories cannot be edited in the address book. Even worse: If you deselect an individual category from a contact, it disappears from the contact and cannot be set again!
I found that categories can be edited via Tools > Categories… you can create them one by one although they actually exist already?!.. so why are categories not synched when synching CardDAV, or at least add those missing in eM when synching?
Option for Import from TheBat (yay, what a surprise!) BUT doesn’t work properly: the folders are not being copied, ALL mails are imported into ONE folder (I have >100.000 mails, structured in folders). I cannot understand why the folders are not recognized. I would also like some options for the import (like which folder/accounts to import etc.).
Workaround: For each folder in TheBat mark all emails, export to MBox file and import in eM… this will take a few extra hours of my time but well, ok, at least I get the result I want.
Something else: I cannot make the " Local Folder" in eM disappear… if I have all my mails in the corresponding mail account folders, why should I need it?
Backup: is a standardized format for the backup possible? (eml, mbox, pst, …)? I only found a .zip file with .dat files in it after the backup. I mean to backup ALL files (not a single mail), also for the case that if one day eM doesn’t work it should be readible by another program (happened with other programs before), that’s why.
Calendar: In the event description, entries that contain TAB spaces (in the source as backslash-t \t) are shown as " t" (blank-t)… well ok, only a minor bug, not very important to me.
Thanks for and help with these issues!
