  • Pros: 

    complete, clever, integrated

    Cons: 

    buggy

    As a subscriber of the service I was eager to try the new Mailbutler version. Mailbutler is probably one the few utilities I use on a regular basis the whole day, and it's a valuable companion for my project management job.

    However, I found the newer 2.0 version to be extremely unstable and buggy, so much that I had to reinstall the previous Mac plugin.

    Moreover, some of the functionalities it was once possible to disable (like displaying thumbnail pictures on the email list or getting rid of the menu icon) are currently there to stay.

    I already emailed the company, hopefully they'll come back soon.

    For now my suggestion is: use the gmail extension or remain to the old Mac plugin.

    Pros: 

    Notes tab might be useful, as well as the task tab.

    Cons: 

    price, the functionality I used in MB ver1 is no longer there (or at least isn't obvious).

    The best feature of MB to me was the toolbar icon that allowed you to quickly compose an email. NowI see three tabs in this icon: Activity which doesn't seem to do anything, Notes which allows you to put a note on an email (but this icon only displays the ones you have created), and Tasks (similar to notes). So, it appears the feature I used MB for is now not there at all. :(

  • Pros: 

    None for me at this time

    Cons: 

    Security issues, removed useful features

    I loved the email pause feature and sadly it has been removed. More importantly, the security issues introduced in v2 are a deal-breaker for me. If the makers are reading this, is there a way to still subscribe and use the old version? I deleted my account yesterday, but would start a paid subscription if I can still use the previous version.

    Pros: 

    Compared to version 1 SASS structure I guess

    Cons: 

    Buggy

    I like Mailbutler v1.x very much.

    Mailbutler 2.x should be taken back to the repo for now.

    Scheduling a delayed email does not work. The scheduling alone takes 20 seconds and always ends with a SOAP error: https://cl.ly/pBev/Image%202018-02-01%20at%209.20.01%20PM.png

    Don't be fooled by the schedule message, it does not work.

    Also "unschedule and edit" takes another 20 seconds.

    I hate that now everything is in the cloud for Apple Mail even the settings. I get that it makes sense because of their plans, but I for example have zero interest in tracking (I don't want any communication with their servers) or cross platform usage.

    The delay sent now is an Apple OS notification and is lacking the additional info with recipients and sender. This is vital for me as I use multiple email accounts.

    I have downgraded for now and am enduring that Mailbutler 1.x fails to recongnise my purchase which is just ... 🧐

    Talking to support was fruitless.

    What a disappointment.

    My advice. Stay on version 1.x for now.

  • Pros: 

    Added some new features and upgrades

    Cons: 

    Buggy, certain features missing, documentation is based on old product.

    The main reason I use Mailbutler is for saving emails to Evernote. This features is either missing in v2.0 or undocumented.

    I reverted to v1.0 and am waiting for v2.0 to be ready for prime time.

  • Pros: 

    You know if your mail has been opened. Set follow-up.

    Cons: 

    Slows everything down. Clunky lack of integration. Hard do find notes and follow-ups. Web interface cumbersome. Potentially security issues

    Fantastic customer service—always friendly, helpful and responsive. They are frustrated by having to work around Apple's obsessive control culture—hence weak integration, remote web interface and compatibility problems.

    Pros: 

    Non that I use

    Cons: 

    Removed upload services I used

    The only reason I used mailbutler was for its ability to automatically upload large files to my NextCloud server, FTP, WebDav etc. All that is gone now.

    Pros: 

    Love the features, IF they worked

    Cons: 

    buggy, new version not working properly

    None of the signatures that I have made through "bowtie" , the new version are working at all. I have reached out to support and have received various responses, none of them solving the problem.

  • Pros: 

    all in one, multiple integrations

    Cons: 

    subscription

    I am using Mailbutler in my work as a sales exec every day. I is a great all-in-one package, especially for those using Mac computers. I can track my emails, prepare them quickly with templates, undo sending (a life saver not present in Mail by default!) and on top of that bcc them to my crm.

  • Pros: 

    None anymore. I need a new tool.

    Cons: 

    Email collection without a way to opt out...security issue

    Use to be able to use Apple Reminders

    I used the 1.0 version of Mailbutler every day. I loved how it made my my Apple Mail experience much much better. However the move to Mailbutler 2.0 has not been good. They are collecting my emails with no way to opt out. Why do they need my emails? They did not need that in the old version. Also why can't I opt out of this. This is a security risk. Who is looking at my emails. They use to be able to add reminders to Apple Reminders, in 2.0 that feature I use the most often for my workflow is gone. I have no other uses for this tool any more. .

    Cons: 

    subscription

    wish I could just pay for it once.. but awesome program that has become a staple on my mail client. I've told all my friends about it.

    Pros: 

    The ability to cancel an email after pressing send. The send later feature.

    Cons: 

    The subscription.

    Mailbutler has been extremely useful for me. I use it on top of the standard Mac Mail app.
