They both contain correctly placed apostrophes. You don't seem to need any help there. The apostrophe goes before the "s" or after the "s", but where the apostrophe-s goes is a mystery until we know what the sentence it is going to function in wants to say. For example:

"LL's Emailer is an outstanding program."
Here, the Emailer program either belongs to LL or was manufactured and sold by LL, a company, perhaps.
"LL Emailer's features are difficult to use."
Here, "LL Emailer" is the name of the program.
Now it's time for you to explain to us what you are talking about and what you want to say about either LL's Emailer or about LL Emailer's whatever it is.

"LL's Emailer is an outstanding program." is proper. But it would also be correct to say "LL Emailer's features are difficult to use."

You will have to give us the sentence you want to write and provide the first few sentences before that.

It is also possible that although the company is called "LL" the program may still be called "LL Emailer". After all, although the largest software company in the world is called Microsoft its word processing package is called "Microsoft Word".
