well suited to people who predominantly use their Mac for email. It adds a rich feature set to macOS Mail's native features. Mailbutler is less useful to people who frequently process email on iOS/iPadOS. Only a limited subset of Mailbutler's functionality is available on iOS/iPadOS as Apple doesn't currently provide a way for third parties to extend the iOS/iPadOS Mail app. Read full review
We are solving our small sales team problem. I am the only SDR in the company and Tout helps me manage, send and follow up with many of my leads automatically. Tout is more focused on “success or failure” of emails than Yesware is. They are going in different directions – as you can see that they’ll probably have some features from one another.

We could easily see if a lead forwarded an email to a large group of people for instance, because the stats would show it. Connect our email and CRM to log email activities onto Leads and Contacts. Keep users inside of our email system instead of copying and pasting email templates from multiple places. Read full review Cons Mailbutler occasionally conflicts with other macOS Mail plug-ins. Though, in most (if not all) cases the issue tends to be with other plugins. The Mail app for iOS/iPadOS doesn't support plugins, making it necessary to use Mailbutler's own app to access a limited subset of the functionality on macOS/iPadOS. Read full review Reporting is clunky and challenging to use at times. They were recently purchased by Marketo, so I'm hopeful that Marketo will be able to address some of these concerns. The ToutApp interface is not the most intuitive and does not provide a deeper understanding/analysis of the data. The ToutApp integration with Outlook has created intermittent problems in usability/access. Read full review Support Rating
Support is generally very good. Occasionally the response time is a bit slower than I'd like.

It was tough to reach their support team. On average, it would take over 24 hours to get a response. Agents would ask us to perform repetitive tasks and take lots of screenshots instead of looking at our system and helping us fix issues.

I'm not aware of any other products that provide the same functionality within the macOS Mail client. There are some third-party email apps for macOS and iOS/iPadOS that have some of Mailbutler's features, but my preference is to stay with Apple's Mail client, partially for security reasons.

Marketo Sales Connect (ToutApp) was nowhere near as dynamic as the other listed tools that I mentioned. There was not any Sequence or Cadence you could follow. It was missing dynamic fields. A bit cumbersome. The other tools had much prettier interfaces too.
Read full review Return on Investment Mailbutler's effect for me personally is unquantifiable - but it really helps me stay on top of the myriad emails that pass through my inbox each day. I would imagine that across a larger organization, Mailbutler's impact on overall productivity has the potential to be immense! Read full review It's enabled more efficiency for our SDR team to track and monitor emails. Increased our ability to better target prospects as we learned more about their behaviors. The automation tools for email, and the ability to get glimpses into how that impacted pipeline development, were worth the cost. Read full review ScreenShots
