Very happy that I have Mailbutler. I can schedule emails to go out whenever I want. If I have a new idea late at night, I can compose an email to a client or staff... and schedule it to go out the next morning. I have an awesome and professional email footer now. And, I can snooze my less important emails to come back in a few hours, tomorrow, or next week. Installation was easy, and it integrates right into Apple Mail. This is email how it should be.

Used to be an invaluable too adding some genuinely useful features to Apple's dependable but underwhelming Mail (notably the read receipt and delayed sending capabilities)... but become increasingly intrusive with frustrating levels of web-based functionality and an irritating tendency to try to sell, sell, sell... more, more, more... In the end I gave up, uninstalled it (despite having paid for a lifetime licence) and installed Spark instead...

Trying to "Snooze" one message and failing again. That's it - I'm cancelling it! Mailbutler doesn't work more than 50% of the time. It is completely unreliable for any business. I've had it on MBP15 2017 (Mojave) and now on MBP16 2019 (Catalina) is even worst. I did send numerous emails and done troubleshooting numerous times but nothing changed for the entire year. Actually, it got worst. This is a great idea with a very disappointing execution.

I agree with the positive reviews. Scheduling emails is what I use it for the most and it works very well.

If you have Apple Mail, this is a priority 'upgrade' you can make to make your Apple Mail more useful. This Apple Mail plug-in has come of age. They have just added a major feature called 'sidebar' so you can control and monitor your email notes and reminders - available for ALL users - free and paid subscribers. How good is that! Plus all the other useful features such as attachment missing reminder, delay send, etc etc. One of the best Mail plug-ins available today.

Very expensive for an individual businessman in EU, i was paying 10 euros per month, when in the same time my Netflix subscription is 13 euros!! If the cost it was about 5 euros per month it could be a usfull application.

I totally see the value and like the application. It's been a bit of a life saver, but if you are running a company and trying to get your employees set up too the customer service is the worst. Part of the issue is they are in Germany, so there is definitely a bit of a language issue as they do not answer your questions directly. Something that should take maybe 15 minutes to solve ends up taking 4 - 5 days with a constant volleying of emails. As mentioned, like the app. Customer service leaves a lot to be desired.

Send Later WITHOUT having to be online IS THE BOMB! Thanks to the whole Mailbutler team for making that possible. This app is more like a plug-in (in a very good way). Its seamless integration with macOS Mail and other useful features like Undo Send, make it an essential tool for email management, on a personal or a business level. I have been using Mailbutler for free for a year or so and their customer service is outstanding (yes, even if you are not paying anything). That made me realize it's worth to upgrade to a yearly plan, and I just did. :)

Very helpful app. Before Mailbutler, my messages would frequently get stuck at the bottom of my recipients' inboxes. Now I can schedule at times when I know my message will rise to the top. It's terrific to be able to tag messages with comments and prioritize followup. Thanks for developing this app!

Love it! Before MailButler, my mail would frequently get stuck at the bottom of my recipients inboxes. Now I can send at times when I know it will rise to the top of their box, and am able to tag messages with comments. This is an excellent productivity tool. Thanks for developing it!

This is a very helpful app. The feature I am using most is the template email, I receive a lot of same or similar inquiries and I am now able to respond in one click. I am an educator using single-person paid version and finding it well worth it.

I cannot stressed how this app has changed our work over here. Thank you very much to the Mailbutler team, you are doing an excellent job, now we can tracked e-mails sent out from our foundation and scheduled tasks etc. The new android and iPhone app is fantastic as you are able to tracked e-mails sent out on the go. Fantastic app and I do recommend Mailbutler to everyone who uses mac. Great app, good work team! Keep it up!

It's not an overstatement to say that this app has completely transformed my approach to email. The ability to snooze and delay sending has become absolutely essential to me. And the feature that delays sending of emails has saved me truly countless times. Plus there are numerous little things that only occasionally come in handy, but when they do they are deeply appreciated, like checking, when you reference an attachment in your email, that you actually have an attachment. Highly recommended.

Too many reasons to say why this is a GREAT plugin for Mac Mail. I've been using it for about a month now and I love all of the tools it has built in to make email a much more streamlined and professional tool to use. Thanks Mailbutler!!!!!

Warning: Do not use Mailbutler! These people--and no one knows who they are--will distribute your email address and you'll be bombarded with marketing spam from third-parties. I am now averaging 150 junk emails a day and it keeps getting worse, I am 100% certain Mailbutler is the source. As the axiom goes, if you're not the client, you're the product.

Having switched from Gmail to macMail I simply wanted the ability to delay send as you can with Gmail. I use this quite a bit (like forgetting to add attachments or noticing a spelling mistake - thanks Mr autocomplete - as you press send). Mailbutler does this remarkably well and, in addition, there are numerous other handy features (even in the free edition) like delayed/scheduled sending, snoozing etc, ie. all those things that Apple forgot. It is quite unobtrusive and works as it should, what more can I say.

Mailbutler has been phenomenally consistent in their strive to perfection. Even though their probably main competitor Newton has reappeared after shutting down last summer - Mailbutler offers much more than Newton. Namely - excellent incorporation into Mail and an elegant and sophisticated tool case of instruments that are nothing short of reinventing emailing. Thank you for the wonderful product! Keep it up. Highly recommended!

This is a *must-have* for anyone serious about their email. As the Tech Daddy (formerly on the Huffington Post and a former MacWorld columnist), I've been using Apple Mail and various add-ons for many years. MaiButler has the most functionality of any plug-in or add-on I've used and is now officially in the "how did I live without this?!" category. That said, it's not for everyone. While the free version is useful in its own right, to get the most out of MailButler you should definitely upgrade to a paid plan. For me, it's worth the money to be able to track emails with no limits, find out who opened them and when, track when someone clicks on a link, un-send an email or send later, snooze messages in the inbox and much more. Plus, this is the very first email plugin I've ever seen that has within it the ability to EASILY create WORKABLE professional-looking rich HTML signatures that often cost lots of bucks via various websites or services. (The key words here are "easily" and "workable.") While some have complained about MailButler's reliance on a web-based interface for setting preferences and functionality, I think it was a smart move. It allows MailButler to function on all my Macs in the same way, while making it easy to adjust things or view reports and the like no matter where I am. If you depend on email for your livelihood, this is the plugin you want!

I like the availability of Mailbutler. I use one account and one subscription for both my private and work email address.It works on both Gmail and Apple Mail so this is another way I can use it in both places. I use it mostly to create follow-up reminders (as I work in sales for an international business). They had a few hickups in the past but it shows that they are more focused on the end user now, with better support and more frequent and regular updates.

Great Software, but the developer haven't understand that paying for software does not mean that this is your personal AlphaTester - constant Problems with this software, every new Release (Stable) is unstable or even does not work. Sorry for many Years I have the business Abo and for now I who'd say 70% of all Updates are not even Beta Stadion.

MailButler update! Cargolifter has been resurrected! Don't be confused. Let me explain. I and my business partner were having ongoing issues with the Attachment Upload feature in MailButler (send files of unlimited size or file type in emails with your cloud storage service). We kept reporting these issues back to the dev who did their best to assist and were great with their communication on the issue. Props to them. In the end it looks like they may have been receiving feedback on this issue from other MailButler users and made CargoLifter (their previously separate, excellent paid app) available again for FREE. http://www.mailbutler.io/cargolifter/ I currently don't use the other features of MailButler except the attachment missing reminder feature. I'm sure I eventually will. Great app. Great developer company.

Genuinely love this product, was simple to install on Mac and works a treat, actually makes email a powerful tool again. The tracking opens and link clicks is super useful and the undo-send function has proved useful on more than one occasion. Would highly recommend!

Mailbutler is an incredibly good app. It takes advantage over functionality in Apple Mail app. For me, using the essential plan is enough, but if I could need the pro plan I''l buy with no doubt. I do not understand people making bad reviews. Maybe them have not updated their systems or permissions for the plugin to work properly. It's easier bad talking than follow instructions. By the way, the undo sent works very fine. For me, Mailbutler works smoothly and without problems. Thank you, team :)

AVOID THIS CRAP. Only reason I bought it is because at that time I wanted to use Mail 'cause I didn't see any benefit on running a different mail client given Mail is quite a good app -- so investing in a plugin instead buying another app seemed the correct choice. And I still believe it is, as I still use and like Mail... the problem is with this very specific piece of crap that MailButler is.

[rant]
From the same people that brought you Shimo, the OpenVPN client that will let you stranded more than often by screwing your .ovpn configuration files stored on the cloud (it's 2019 and they don't have it right yet), or will lose connection and force you to jump into the terminal in order to manually kill the OpenVPN process to regain access to internet -- please give a warm reception to MailButler, the Mail app plugin that shoves down your throat the way it's supposed to use it!
[/rant]

This MB crap is one of the most invasive apps I met since moving into Mac about four years ago.

I bought the Professional plan a year ago or so since the price was correct for a lifetime license. I'd like to mention that at that time MB was still usable, giving the user full ownership over it's behavior.

Fast-forward some months, they "evolved" it to version 2 and then was when everything started to go downhills: first of all, they removed the configuration pane from the plugin installed on your local system to their cloud-based service while removing a wealth of features in the process; secondly, they never provided a way to disable MB from adding itself a menu bar icon that no matter how many times you quit it, it will repeatedly spawn over and over again without asking the user if that's what he wants; thirdly, this software constantly installs itself as login item (again, no matter how many times you remove the launch daemon, it will magically be there again next time you check the list).

Oh, and I haven't mentioned yet their rude, condescending support for both MB and Shimo. To be honest, looks like they don't give a single F about their users, to them we are just cows to milk and treat like sheit.

If you're really looking for the functionality marketed by MB, I strongly suggest you go and check the alternatives out there, like the Boomerang plugin for Gmail (among others).

Mailbutler is an essential tool in the administration of my organization. We have saved a tremendous amount of time using the template function of Mailbutler - can't wait to they release it for Safari as well. Vital add-on to my organization - keep up the good work! :)

I bought a "life time" licence for Mailbutler when it was first launched; when I upgraded, I wasn't told that it was now a subscription model, and cost more than the original licence per month. I continued to use it, thinking that perhaps I hadn't utilised all the features sponsored reviews seemed to suggest made it worth it – even after being deluged by emails I could not unsubscribe from. Then, after being told it was being upgraded with a screen every time I opened Mail and advising me there would be no further support for the current version in January, discovered a bug that deleted/hid mail headers, as well as appending advertising to my emails. When I contacted them, they told me this new release was only a beta – now I know why Mail (already admittedly buggy and unstable) was always crashing! I have now deleted this app – Mailhub is more than reliable and uninstrusive – and Apple Mail is working perfectly for the first time in years. I never write reviews but my poor experience with this company and software have compelled me to do so. Install with caution, and upgrade with even greater caution. On a positive note, they seem to be very polite, even as they ignore your concerns.

MailButler is hands-down the best email utility I have ever used. I've been a user for almost 2 years, after reading an article about how one user improved his productivity using MailButler. I use the Apple Mail version, and it makes Apple's mail client the most powerful mail client I've ever used. I use it with MailTags, like others who have reviewed it, and together, they have turned the drudgery of plowing through mail into a structured, organized process. I highly recommend it!

Great Product, but.... ...very often the software crashes (after updates) so user needs to go back to the old version until the next fix is online. ... it is mostly server-based - you have no access what is running there and how they handele your data.... ... discontinuing importend functions without informing users... so if you need the a function and you really need it - make sure you have a fallback solution because you don't know what they will do next.... so if you know that and you can live with that - it is a great software!

Best upgrade to the Apple Mail on the market period. I have been using it for more than a couple of years. I also used Newton which was good but will be discontinued come late September 2018. Also, AirMail 3 and Spark. While all of the above are not bad, Mailbutler is still the best in terms of functionality, convenience, practicality and their great support team that is creative, thoughtful and innovative. Once Mailbutler comes up with iOS version they will simply be the best on the market for all-round Apple users. In the meantime, Mailbutler in Apple Mail remains the best email client for MacOS in my well informed if not so humble opinion.

Hands down one of the most awesome plugins to get for your Mac Mail. The winning features: 1. Delayed send: An invaluable feature to quickly stop emails from going out after clicking the send button! 2. The 'Oh no! I forget to attachment the file' head-slap is gone forever! 3. Most valuable for me is the confirmation of the receiver opening the message sent. It's also a great way to know that you have indeed sent it to the right address and the person has actually read it! Great going guys! You totally rocked it with this! Feature suggestion: (Something Apple had for the longest time and disabled it) 'Bounce to Sender' option. Was great in not only fooling certain servers but also a great way of making annoying people remove your address from their database. Regards, Kunal Bhende.
