I also question the 'fully featured' as it lacks both an auto bcc (to ensure that the email actually went out - sometimes not the case with this email client) and a way to delay the sending of an email to a fixed time.
I've been using this client (paid version) to manage 4 email accounts, on 3 separate computers, 2 laps and a workstation, at the same time for more than 3 years and I really like it but it does have a couple of shortcomings, one of which has been mentioned.
I really do need an auto response feature for business emails. Without this I have to log into a webmail client linked to my domain server and set up auto responses from there which is a time wasting exercise.
One aspect of the client I really like is the ability to move emails to a local folder which means I can read them when I don't have good internet access, which as I travel in some remote places, is quite often. Syncing of offline folders between two computers could be easier but I get by by taking a backup on one computer, copying it to the backup folder on the other computer and then restoring it to the client installed there. It takes a few minutes but rarely lets me down.
All in all this is a very good client but having that autoresponse function would put the icing on the cake.
"Full featured?" Certainly compared to IBM PROFS or MCI Mail and a cut about the bare minimum these days. But it lacks so many capabilities necessary for a "full featured" email package that only the least demand novice will be satisfied with it. For example, there's no automatic reply capability - something I guess might take about an hour of coding if you had no experience.
I can't find 'auto correct' to fix common spelling errors and making i into I. I also can't find a conversation view, which I thought I'd read somewhere it could do, that's why I loaded it. Love the rest.
It's impossible to believe it has no cons. Please provide cons for this app or it would be unfair.
Please show us how to configure the auto-reply option and I will be convinced that this is an awesome email app.
There is a problem with eM Client: it can't be configured for MAPI and the Softmaker forum has to find a working solution.
Does not support auto reply =(
