I’m a new eM Client user, after being a long-time Thunderbird user. As I’ve been using the package, I’ve found a few bugs, and a few features that I’d really like to see.
I am using v8.2.1473 (04b618f)
First, the bugs: Multiple calendars in Google Calendar doesn’t work in em Client. All I see is my primary calendar. The other calendars show up in the “Folder” list, but don’t get displayed even if selected. This true for both calendars that I created, and calendars that were shared with me.
For IMAP, if eM Client has previously retrieved unread messages, and I delete those messages using another computer, eM Client doesn’t properly update the unread message count when it removes the message on the next synchronize.
Next, the feature requests:
Please add an option for marking messages read when deleted. This is something the recent versions of Microsoft Outlook provides, and I really like it.
With Thunderbird, I don’t normally use the Trash, but rather have Thunderbird mark the messages as deleted on the server, and then manually expunge/compact them at the end of my session. I’d really like eM Client to support this as well.
I’d like to see it remember my reading position in a message that’s viewed in the reading pane, so that it’ll be in the same place if I click away from it to look at another message and then come back. I realize that I can open it in a new window and that’ll retain position, but retaining the read position was something that the old, original Eudora mail client did, and I still miss it.
When I open a message in a new window, the only keyboard shortcut that will close the window is Alt-F4. I’d like to see it allow Ctrl-W for closing additional reading windows, but NOT close the main window on Ctrl-W.
The way that keyboard focus is handled between the message list and the reading pane is a little clumsy. My ideal would be that I can select a message using the cursor up-arrow and down-arrow, and then use PgUp and PgDn to scroll the message. I can do that right now by using the cursor arrows to select the message and then using TAB to send keyboard focus over to the reading pane, but there isn’t an easy way to get focus back to the message list…TAB doesn’t do anything if the reading pane has keyboard focus. I’d also like an option to have the message list ignore PgUp/PgDn…if I think I’m paging through the reading pane but the message list really has focus then the selected message goes zooming away.
