Subscribe to public folders on Exchange

If you're using an Exchange account in eM Client, we have some good news for you. Some of our users have been missing the option to subscribe and unsubscribe public folders on the Exchange server. This feature is now a part of eM Client 6 and will be available to all our users from now on.

introducing public folders for Exchange

You can find this new feature in your account settings under Tools > Accounts > Your Exchange Account > Mail, Contacts and Calendars. Scroll down to open up the list of public folders and use the "Subscribe" and "Unsubscribe" buttons to add or remove the folder from your list of synchronized folders. All subscribed folders should be listed below your account in the left pane.

Before subscribing to folders, make sure your Exchange account is fully synchronized with the server, as the folders can be listed only when the account has been fully synchronized.

If you come across any issues with this new feature, make sure to let us know on the Community Support or our VIP support if you're a PRO license user.

Facebook Chat API support has been shutdown

You may have noticed we have removed the facebook chat feature out of the application in one of the recent updates. Since we also quite liked this feature, we just wanted to let you know this is not what we would prefer, but unfortunately facebook has decided to shutdown support for the XMPP protocol and the chat API.

This unfortunately left us no other option than to remove the feature from our application, you may remember that we already had to do this with the Skype support in the past.

Facebook chat features are currently only supported via facebook native apps, e.g. Messenger or the native web browser UI. And as of today, it is no longer possible to use the chat API with third party applications.

eM Client now features OAuth authentication with Gmail

Remember how you were forced to use the two step verification option or to allow access for “Less secure apps” while setting up eM Client with your Gmail account?

As of today you can update your eM Client to the latest release which from now on supports the OAuth authentication method that will allow you to authenticate with your Google account without any prior account adjustments and will increase the security of your account.

transfer-all-data

OAuth is the authentication standard that allows applications to reach out to your server for an authentication “Token”, that will be serving as the access key between your mail server and the application. This feature also allows you to manage the connected devices remotely, just by logging into your account settings online.

Since Google has decided to shut down support for the less secure apps, on April 30th make sure to update your application soon to avoid any future authentication issues.

Download the update here or by using the "Check for Update" option under Help in your eM Client installation.

eM Client's Ability for Touch Support

The newest computers on the market today aren't like the ones you could buy a year or two ago. You no longer need to just use the keyboard, trackpad and mouse. You have the whole Internet at your fingertips - literally.

With eM Client's touch support feature, you will be able to manage your emails with the tips of your fingers. To turn on touch support, all you have to do is look to the upper right hand corner of your computer's screen. Next to the icons for closing the email client and maximizing the window, you will see a hand type of icon. That is the one you want to push on your screen. When you do this, you'll receive a notification that will ask you if you want to turn on touch support. At that time, you can say yes, and you will see the email client change. Your inbox list will have more room and the icon for navigation will be more spread apart. Why does this happen? It's simply to make it easier for you to use your fingers.

When you click on an icon, you should see that the response is just as fast as it would be if you used your trackpad or mouse. It might be even faster because you don't have to deal with a trackpad that doesn't follow your finger as quickly or accurately. Before you know it, you'll likely start to using the touch screen more than you ever have before just because it's more user friendly and faster.

With touch support, you can even write emails. You will see the touch keyboard at the bottom of the screen. When you have that on the bottom of your screen, you can just tap the letters to write your email. You might need to get used to typing this way, but you can get to the speed you are at on your keyboard with time.

How to Turn Touch Support Off

You can turn touch support off easily by tapping the same icon you did to turn it on. It will ask you if you want to turn it off, and all you have to do is select yes. Now the touch support is off. You can turn it on again by tapping the same icon again.

Now that you know how useful touch support can be with eM Client, go ahead and download it on our site at www.emclient.com. You will see that it's convenient and it truly is the best email client on the market today.
