eM Client 8: Now with New Gestures & Cloud Storage Support

For people looking for a more integrated mail client to circumvent the limitations of Microsoft Outlook or Mozilla Thunderbird, we suggested eM Client in an earlier post. While eM Client already had some awesome features including chat integration, unified mailbox management from multiple accounts and support for various third-party platforms, eM Client 8 has come with even better features, including support for new gestures and cloud storage, with the utility to open multiple instances of your mail client.

View and Manage All Attachments

The new version of eM Client allows users to view and manage all their attachments at once. You can delete, forward or even save your PowerPoint presentations, Word documents, PDF files or other attachments from a unified interface.

Support for Attachments from Cloud Storage Services

To save your mailbox storage space, you can now use eM client for sharing files uploaded to a cloud storage service and share the link in your email. To use this option, you will need to be logged in to both eM Client and the cloud storage service app (e.g. Dropbox or OneDrive). When you attempt to attach the file from your folder of the cloud storage app, you will get an option to share a link of the file instead of sending an attachment. This is great for example if you are going to share big files, or a .pptx PowerPoint presentation that would be better to have hosted in a cloud storage service instead of sharing as an attachment. In the screenshow below we can see how a .ppx file is being shared via cloud storage instead of adding the file as a direct attachment to the email.
