All platform eMule P2P client

aMule is a spinoff project of xMule, a client based in eMule, the famous P2P client. Clients use several networks to create one reliable network. (ED2K, Source Exchange, Kad) eMule’s Queue and Credit system helps to ensure that everyone will get the file he wants by promoting those that upload back to the network. eMule is completely free. eMule is also completely free of any Adware, Spyware, and ect. Each file is checked for corruptions while downloading to ensure an error free file. The eMules Intelligent Corruption Control helps to speed up the correction of corrupted parts.

Auto priorities and Source management allows you to start many downloads without having to monitor them. The Preview function allows you to look at your Videos and Archives before they are completed. For video previewing, the Video Lan Client is recommended. The eMule features webservices and a webserver that allow you to have quick access to and from the internet. You can create categories for your download to organize them.

To find the file you want, eMule offers a wide range of search possibilities which include servers (Local, and Global), web based (Jigle, and Filedonkey), and Kad (Still in Alpha). eMule also allows you to use very complex Boolean searches that make the searches much more flexible. With the messaging and friend system, you can send messages to other Clients and add them as friends. In your friend list, you can always see if a friend is online. With the build in IRC client, you can chat with other downloaders and chatters around the globe.
