em Client looks very promising, however it still misses some essential e-mail features, so that I’m not too happy with its reply behaviour.
First of all: When replying a mail, I always get two empty lines on top which shouldn’t be there if you want to reply at the bottom or in between. Also a “>” is more helpful than if you display it with a pipe.
Then it would be nice if quotes are colored (also in the reply window) like you see in the following two examples:
…or even more colors depending on the level:
Hello, thank you for the suggestion, we’ll consider improving this in future releases.
After 2 years of consideration it’s about time for a decision. I would like to have this feature too.
Seems to me, nothing changed in upcoming v8… After 5 years. Really, a conversation in mail looks like a trash, it is impossible to understand where whose text. Not clear at all.
This is one of the main demerits of eM Client, from my vantage point.
I have always preferred the original notion of initial email protocols, which allowed for replies to be interspersed within the body of the original mail, and subsequent replies done in the same manner.
For this way of communicating, which–again–is part of the original RFC 524 protocol definitions, it’s imperative to have different colors for the text and quote pipe (or carets), to allow a clear differentiation of each level of quote.
2 years late. Still no support in 9.1. Is it really that complex?
