How to Effectively Use eM Client's Sidebar

eM Client incorporated a sidebar in its email client to make navigating all of its features easy. The sidebar helps you find your contacts quickly, as well as their details. It lets you read communication history, review your list of tasks and any attachments sent between you and your contacts. Understanding how to use these features will help you have a better experience with eM Client.

About the Sidebar

The sidebar has four sections:

  1. Contact Details
  2. Agenda
  3. Chat
  4. Invitations

To hide/unhide the sidebar, simply click on the arrow nex to the text that says Contact Details.

What the Contact Details Section Tells You

The Contact Details section gives you the email address, mobile/telephone number, Skype address, and chat message contacts. You can use this section to pull up information quickly when you need it. Many people love that they can call someone, email, or Skype someone as soon as they need to all from one place.

What You Can Do with the Agenda Section

The agenda section keeps in you on task. It reminds you of birthday, events, and any emails you've flagged. You'll have a much easier time keeping on top of everything with this section.

One of the features of the Agenda section is that you can set it up to show you events anyway that you would like such as all upcoming events in the coming day, two days, three days, week, two weeks, month, three months, etc. You can overwhelm yourself as much or as little as you would like with this feature.

Search Bar Finds What You Need When You Need It

Can't find what you need in eM Client? Don't worry, we've implemented a search bar to help you. All you have to do is put in a couple of words or more of what you need to find. eM Client's intelligent technology will then search everything you have such as events, email, etc. and give you the results that have those words in them. You'll find what you need quickly and easily.

Add New Tasks in Seconds

On the phone when you get a new task to do? No problem. Simply add the new task as you're getting the details in the sidebar. You'll be amazed at how many tasks you can create in a day and how easy it is to do them and then check them off to mark their completion.

Chat With Everyone

You can link chat capabilities with Google Talk, ICQ, AIM, Facebook, Live Messenger and much more. This section lets you see everything about your contacts such as whether they are online and their contact information. You can organize your chat contacts too. That way you can go right to a group when you need to chat with the members in it. You can also toggle the section to only show you people who are online.

As you can see the sidebar on eM Client provides you convenience and organization. You can do a lot just with the sidebar, and you can do a lot more with the entire application. Download eM Client today if you haven't already.

Contacts Organized Simply with eM Client's Address Book

Many people have a difficult time keeping all their contacts organized. They have so many of them coming from so many directions that sometimes they just give up on trying to organize them. This is usually more because of the application they are using rather than not having the time or patience. eM Client provides a simpler way for you to organize your contacts and even brings in more features than many other email clients.

Import Contacts

Contacts can be imported from many different emails such as Gmail. This process is much simpler than what it used to be like where you had to enter them in manually. What a headache that was back then.

Match Email and Chat Contacts

Many times, you may have the chat information for people, but not their email. Alternatively, you may have their email but not their chat information. With eM Client, they integrate. When you have a person on your chat, the system will find the person in your address book and include their chat information. This way you have all the information you need, when you need it.

Color Code Contacts

Some of your contacts are your friends, others are your family. For business, you have some that you work in the office and others that are spread across the globe. When looking for people to send emails too, it can be much easier to look for colors rather than names. That's how the color code feature comes into play and helps you. For every contact, you can create a category and attach a color to it. Once you have that color attached to that category, you can then assign it to each person you want in it. Just imagine how easy it will be next time you want to send an email to a brand that is located in California. You can simply name the category California and attach the color yellow to it and that's it. You know exactly who needs to be included in the email.

Automatically Adds Contacts for Future Use

eM Client does something quite interesting to your address book capability. When you email anyone, that person's email lands in your address book. When you go to email that person again, you can simply start the email address and the email client will show you the rest of the email address. This saves you time and frustration when you can't remember that email address you used last week.

Easily Delete Contacts

Sometimes, you may not want to keep email addresses you haven't used in a while. Deleting them is simple too. Simply go to Contacts under Tools or press Ctrl+B. You can then press Ctrl and then click on each person you want to delete. Once you've highlighted everyone, simply press delete on your keyboard.

Setting Up Signatures for Emails with eM Client

Email signatures are professional looking and they give people information about how to contact you other than hitting reply. Even for personal use, email signatures give your email character. It gives you a chance to show your personality because you can use a quote or just create a fancy signature using a special font for your name. The other bonus to signatures is that they are easy. Once you have it set up, you never have to do anything to have it placed on your email. It's there when you start a new email or reply to someone, if you choose that setting. Here's how to set it up for the first time.

 Go to Tools and select Settings.

Click on Mail and then Templates and Signatures.

You will see two sections in the window that comes up:
1. Mail Templates
2. Signatures

We will show you how to use mail templates on another blog. For now, we will deal with the Signatures section. Click on the block that says “Signatures…” A new window will appear. You can create a new signature by click on the Add button to the right. A new window will appear to start editing your signature. Name the signature, so you know which one you'd like to use for which email addresses. Feel free to use all the features we have in our editing window such as the bold, italics, underline, font, etc.

Once you have your signature exactly the way you want it, click ok. You will see your signature name in the window that says Signature list. Press ok to return to the previous window.

Now you can set up the signature you want for each of your email addresses. Click on the drop down menu after the text “Select signature for account.” Select the email address you want to choose a signature for here.

Below this you will see three options:
1. Signature for new mails
2. Signature for replies
3. Signature for forwards

If you want your signature to appear on new emails, you will need to select the signature name in the drop down. If you want to have your signature show up when you are replying to people, you will need to select the signature from the list there as well. If you want it to appear when you forward emails, do the same for that drop down box. If you do not want your signature to appear for any one of these, just leave the field as “Not Selected.”

After this, press Apply and then Ok and your signatures should be working flawlessly.

Modifying and Removing Signatures

To modify or remove signatures, go to Tools, Settings, Mail, and then Templates and Signatures. Click on the box that says “Signatures…” Click on the signature name you want to change or remove from the Signature list. Simply press modify if you want to change it, or remove if you want to delete it.

You now know how to create, modify and remove signatures. Go ahead and play around with it. You'll love the way eM Client personalizes your emails and helps you make them professional at the same time.
