I am using a 3rd party video card so that I can drive the monitors at 60 Hz. Seems to be good. I can do pixel-level work, which is one requirement I have. Heck, I even have my own bitmap programming “fonts” so that I don’t have to see any anti-aliasing, be it ClearType or standard.
(For reference, it is a GeForce GTX 1650 based card, and I’m sure those who play games will say it is terrible, but I do not play games save a round of Lexulous with a friend.)
It’s just that there are few program, like MailBird and eM Client, that are hard to resize with their one-pixel borders. I can deal and have dealt with it, but I find it interesting that my own software doesn’t have this “issue.” Maybe one day I’ll look at the window and see if I can find something of use.
I have found one trick. To resize the main dialog, the area to the right of the “Contact Details” has a larger grab area then the email list below.
In the end, this isn’t a deal breaker. A good reliable program is top priority and my experience with eM is only a day old. I like the look and feel, like the Themes (was able to adjust the text to blank on white instead of gray on white) and hope they’ll add Reply-To (very important to me). There are a few tweaks that I’ll point out later on. I need to test whether program shuts down correctly on a reboot and would like to run the program “portable” so that I can have one business instance completely separate from a personal instance. Right now my biggest concern before plopping down $120 are those posts saying bad things about the company’s customer support.
Thanks for your thoughts on this.
