If you ask 100 users about their preferred email client you will receive many different answers. Many will tell you that they use web based email like Gmail, Yahoo Mail or Windows Live Mail. Others will proudly mention that they rely on desktop email clients like Microsoft Outlook or Mozilla Thunderbird. Only a few will mention an email client that you never heard about though; And this is the tale of one..
eMailaya is a portable email client for the Windows operating system. It is one of those software programs that receives fantastic ratings all over the place but is known by only a few users. What makes this client unique in comparison to other desktop clients and web based email services?
The answer is its functionality. Have you ever asked yourself why there is no way to send audio or video emails easily? Why there is not a build in feature to check and manage emails on the mail server? Why there is no easy way to backup emails?
Those are just a few of the features that eMailaya comes with. Lets take a closer look at the audio email feature. All you need is a microphone that is connected to the computer. You press a button in the email client that indicates that the recording starts. You talk and as soon as you stop the recording the audio file gets added as an attachment.
The same principle applies to video emails. It is really that easy. No more starting another application, recording the audio or video, saving it and adding it as an attachment.
What else do you get:
Is it the right email client for you? That's a question that is best to be answered after testing eMailaya extensively. The email client can import messages from Gmail, Outlook, Outlook Express and eml/ema/msg files. Contacts can be imported from the Windows address book.
