Mailhub is supposed to be similar, and better, the only downside being a noncomminicative dev.

Don mentioned several years ago that he was checking out MailHub; I'm wondering what made this more attractive?


Kenneth Taylor

Hi Jim, MailHub is certainly more useful to me. I still like to sort my mail into folders. MailHub makes the few messages that are not automatically sorted by filters easy to file. It also works well with Reminders. I use it all the time. I have tried MailButler but it offers a lot that I do not care about. This review offers me no compelling reason to switch.

Hi Jim, to be honest MailButler was my choice. MailButler has been very well received by email nerds I know, so I was excited to dive into it for SCO :)

I've been using MailButler for over a a year. I really like knowing whether an email I send has been opened. Also, I like being able to schedule the time an email gets delivered... sometimes I'll compose an email in the wee hours of the morning but I'll schedule it for delivery during normal work hours so people won't think I'm a workaholic and can't keep up with the workload during a normal work week. And the developer has responded whenever I've had questions. It's a very professional package.

I have used Mail plug-ins in the past and every time Apple updated Mail, it killed the plug-in. Any idea if this is the case here?

Hi Olen, I would imagine that you are in just as much danger using MailButler as any other plugin, but the developer does seem to be very responsive. Each version of Mail in macOS is going to bring challenges for developers to overcome, Mac users were fortunate with High Sierra for the changes to be pretty minor and not cause many significant issues.

Fay Greenfield

so i just signed up for your tutorial -- but it's not helpful at all as the images in your tutorial don't match up w/Mailbutler today, 2/18/2018. very confusing!


Mike Schmitz

Sorry about that, Fay. I noticed the website looks very different but the service itself looks pretty similar (at least to me on build 6901). Unfortunately, I don't have prior knowledge when developers will make updates and I'm sure somethings will be different as they consistently try to improve their products. But if you have any questions, I'll do my best to answer them here.
