eM Client and SmarterMail team up for enhanced email experience

We are thrilled to announce an exciting new cooperation between eM Client and SmarterMail! We have joined forces to offer a fresh, innovative email experience to all eM Client and SmarterMail users, and we’d love to tell you more about what exactly has changed.

eM Client - Smartermail Partnership

The Power of Collaboration

Two is better than one. SmarterTools is well-known for developing mail server with best-in-class EWS support for enterprise level features - SmarterMail.

At eM Client, we’ve worked hard to provide a feature-rich email app for Windows and macOS; with iOS and Android mobile apps being on the horizon. By combining our strengths and expertise, we hope to revolutionize the way you can manage your email, calendars, tasks, and more.

Our teams have worked closely together for over a year to achieve this truly exceptional feat – the overlap of SmarterMail's features with eM Client's functions. This advancement covers all aspects of modern email management.

Enhanced Email Functionality

  • Automatic SmarterMail account setup - you only need to enter your username and password and eM Client will do the rest for you.
  • Signatures set in webmail are now synchronized to eM Client and vice versa when using EWS or IMAP.
  • All categories including the master category are now synchronized not only when using EWS protocol, but also for IMAP.

Improved Calendar and Collaboration Tools

  • SmarterMail’s Online Meetings support has been added for comfortable scheduling of online meetings.
  • Complete integration with SmarterMail’s shared calendars, contacts, tasks, and notes when using MAPI & EWS.
  • Enterprise features like delegation, contact groups, Global Address List synchronization, and web calendars are now fully compatible with the SmarterMail server.

Security and privacy

With the increasing importance of online security and data privacy, we are committed to providing top-notch protection. That's why we prioritize the security of your email communications – to ensure that your data remains confidential and secure. With the current trend of data ownership being shifted to big corporations, one of the many reasons we've chosen to collaborate with SmarterMail is because of their "Your data is your data" approach to security.

Together, we are committed to the following principles:

  • eM Client connects to SmarterMail directly, and the only servers your data passes through are the servers, or services, YOU have in place. (E.g., gateways or antispam services like SpamExperts)
  • eM Client offers end-to-end encryption, so communication within an organization can be encrypted and secured.
  • Neither SmarterTools nor eM Client sells any data collected about their users - ever.

Simple management

We’ve gone the extra mile to make your email experience even easier. If you already have a SmarterMail license, we've partnered with SmarterTools to make acquiring an eM Client license and device activations quickly and easily, right from within SmarterMail itself! And, once you have your eM Client license, you will be able to manage your device activations from within SmarterMail as well. We’ve worked together to create an experience that allows for simple administration, a hallmark of both eM Client and SmarterMail.
