What do people think of Mailbutler ?
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.
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. :(
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.
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. .
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.
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.
