So far, after three days "evaluating" eMclient I am about to start trying to use it as my primary email email client.

Note that I place skeptical quotes around "evaluating", since so far most of the time I have spent "evaluating" eMclient has been trying to cope unsuccessfully with the 6-10-15s stalls eMclient gives me when I try to apply Gmail labels/eMclient tags to messages. Proper support for Gmail labels is probably the biggest reason why I'm willing to consider eMclient, and they are not quite there yet for me. More below.

Apart from this, my remarks about eMclient in my previous post still apply:

PRO: supports Gmail labels properly, as well as through the IMAP folders kluge. CON: Performance problems doing this.

CON: limited search. no Boolean's AND/OR/NOT.

CON: limited ability to do things like save search folder logic.

PRO: only partway unified inbox. CON: EMclient does not fully unify the Inbox the way Thunderbird does, and it doesn't even try to unify Sent, Drafts, and other standard folders. But eMclient's halfway unified inbox is better than Outlook doesn't have it all. // I was originally going to say that unified inbox was not a big thing for me, but then I realized that I had neglected my iCloud email for the week or two that I'd been using Outlook more intensively. I guess I'm used having a unified inbox. It is best if the inboxes are completely unified, i.e. if there is a single inbox folder that contains mail from more than one server. But the halfway unified where inbox has subfolders by server with message counts is better than nothing.

CON: does not display counts of both unread and total messages in a folder/label/tag the way Thunderbird does.


CON: EMclient is not fully speech-aware the way Outlook is. On the other hand, I have been using Thunderbird and  Microsoft OneNote for years with Dragon speech recognition, so I'm used to it.  I think I'm willing to give up Select-and-Say in order to get Gmail labels properly supported.  I suppose that I will see about that.



but I will try to live with these problems to get Gmail labels support. My main worry is the stalls on applying tags. next item
