i'm much more productive on gmail because of mailbutler and i recommend it to anyone who wants to save time writing emails.
It is a great tool for Mail users (Apple) but the pricing is simply ridiculous. The free version is useless for anyone I can think of.
The Professional plan is good enough but the real advantage is to have the Business Plan. However, 30 USD / month is way far too much.
They ran a lifetime discounted campaign for less than $50 for the Professional account which would be doable. I am sorry I was not on time to buy it since I had my existing subscription still going on. At this stage I had to delete the app and will look for a better alternative.
MailButler is a replacement for a set of lightweight plugins for Apple Mail, including SendLater, which allowed delayed and scheduled email sending. It adds some additional features, such as invisible email trackers, templates and snoozing. These old plugins are still available at the developer's website, but are unsupported and don't work with Mail as of Sierra.
MailButler functions well, but the new setup has several issues that keep me from using it.
Unfortunately, the multitude of new features are not pick-and-choose: they pepper the Mail interface whether you want them or not. This is quite annoying: for example, I think mail trackers are unethical and would never use one, but the icon cannot be removed from the toolbar. I don't want to send attachments via some cloud sharing service, but a chunky dropdown remains in every compose window containing an attachment.
These "pro" features also require a monthly subscription of around $6. There is a "free" tier, which grants users around 30 pro "actions" per month. Some (un-hidable) features don't work unless you have a subscription, instead popping up a box with a link to the store.
Being asked to pay again for something that was already paid for is a bitter pill to swallow, but I believe developers should get paid for their work, including updating compatibility, and would be happy to do so.
However: replacing something that worked fine with something which also works fine, but is bundled with a mass of new additions which can't be ignored and repeatedly remind you that you could upgrade your monthly subscription plan — that's not something I want to deal with.
