Hi Sandra,

How are you sending the email ? From the Activity related list in Account ? If yes then a record is created in the Task object everytime an email is sent with Tasksubtype as Email. So you can configure a process on the Task in your process builder and update the related Account field. Hive this a try and let me know if you face any issues.

You are right that Email Message is a separate object, but then it's used with the Case object ! :)
