I just reinstalled emClient (see “EMClient disables Windows”, this forum). The mail database check now seems to run correctly.
However, I started cleaning out the Trash and Junk folders in two accounts, which were overfull (about 4000 messages). Each time I commanded “Empty X”, the program froze; I had to stop it with the power button, restart, disregard the Windows startup fault, restart again, and endure the database check.
After four restarts the junk folders are clean, and the databasechecks are three minutes or less.
Now the Task Manager in Windows does NOT show the emClient as a task. I see three tasks: Chrome, WIndows Explorer, and Task Manager. I cannot identify any services associated with emClient.
Ten minutes later, emClient shows up again in the Task Manager (2 subtasks). I can’t understand why,
I also see that the number of Unread messages in the Favorites menu is 50% larger than the sum of the unread messages in all the other mailboxes.
Last question: I see that eMClient is shown as a 32-bit program, amid my 64-bit Operating System… Is there a 64-bit version? Could I be using that? Would using the 64-bit program prevent whatever memory leak is causing the crash while rebuillding the database?
