What does not
Email notifications display as a blank window. When the window begins to fade parts of the notification briefly displays.
Random problems restoring and maximizing various windows. This wasn't all that often though.
Settings window would crash in some places. This is fixed by setting winecfg to use Windows XP as the windows version.
When you receive a new chat, only a small part of the window is drawn. Maximizing the window fixes this issue and it behaves normally after that.
When copying an image to the clipboard from another application to paste into eM Client you must drag-select the image and click copy. Simply right-clicking the image and copying doesn't work.
If oAuth doesn't work, install the wine-gecko (your OS' name may vary) package to your OS.
What was not tested
Exchange and any other non-Google service.
Works fine for everyday use provided you can live without pop-up email notifications (other notifications/reminders work fine). I've used this as my main email client for several weeks with four Gmail / Gsuite accounts. It's very solid without any stability issues. The main issues pertain to window management and drawing. Sometimes windows will get stuck, you can't restore or maximize them, and you are forced to close them at times.
Install the following packages (or something similarly named for your OS):
Using winecfg Set application profile to "Windows XP" to avoid crashes (e.g. Settings screen)
Installed the following using winetricks to get app to start:
allfonts (works without this but installing will fix some cosmetic issues)
Install eM Client by running the following while in the same directory as setup.msi:
wine msiexec /i setup.msi
