Main menu hotkey
I notice a slightly odd thing with a hotkey in the main menu (the menu accessible via Alt+M).
The main categories are File, Edit, View, Message, Tools, and Help. Most of them can be opened using Alt plus a keystroke: F, E, V, T, and so forth. Alt+M and then E selects the Edit fly-out menu. Press E again and the Help fly-out menu is selected.
But why use “E” twice this way? Why not make “H” the hotkey for Help? I just looked in the list of keyboard shortcuts, and Alt+H doesn’t seem to be one of the active shortcuts (unless I just missed it or it has a purpose within eM Client but just hasn’t been shown in the list of shortcuts).
Help > About
The Help > About menu contains the specific eM Client version number in current use. It might be useful at times to be able to cite this number in a tech-support request. Please consider adding a “copy version number to clipboard” feature in this dialog. As far as I can tell, there’s no way to copy the version number. (Some Windows dialogs’ text contents can be copied as text to the clipboard by pressing Control+C when the dialog box is on-screen. That doesn’t seem to work for the Help > About dialog.)
Faster access to Settings
It would be useful to have both a clickable “Settings” icon near the top of the program’s main window, and a dedicated keyboard shortcut for it (say, Alt+S).
