Mailbutler GmbH
Mailbutler is 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.

Shift
I use it every day, and it is so lovely to have a clear desktop and only have one app running with everything I need. For example, when I am creating YouTube content, I need to be able to check analytical data on my YouTube channel, then open up Canva and create additional differences to the thumbnails that Land is making for the following video. I also need to be able to open Google Sheets to update my team and keep track of everything on Trello so we know what project we are currently working on our project. Workflow for content creation is spread across Trello Canva, WhatsApp, and Google Sheets, so to have all of these simultaneously open, I can switch between them all within shift is absolutely a godsend. Also, the fact that it integrates with Microsoft To-Do is beneficial as this is how we keep track of all completed tasks that we, as a team, create.

Shift
  • Shift provides a seamless, single interface that brings together all of my email accounts and productivity tools (both Google Workspace and 3rd parties)
  • It allows me to install, login and access the same emails and tools from ANY desktop in the world, securely, and without leaving a footprint of my User information or online working sessions.
  • The browser-based UX/UI design of Shift makes it intuitive and fast (especially with recent memory handling improvements).

Cons
Mailbutler GmbH
  • 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.

  • Some apps don’t work as well as they would on a regular plugin for a browser
  • Web browser is nice, but Chrome is a bit more user friendly
  • Sometimes things load strange and take over a work space (some forms or PDFs)

Support is generally very good. Occasionally the response time is a bit slower than I'd like.

It is simple and has exactly what I need. If they worked out a few minor bugs, I think it would be perfect.

Alternatives Considered
Mailbutler GmbH
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.

I wouldn't say I liked the user experience and the difficulty in configuration. I generally like to keep my UX and UI as consistent as possible, and Shift does that. Moreover, I wanted to save all my Gmail labels and have their catalog precisely as on the Gmail website. Thunderbird for Mac is a bit tacky.

Return on Investment
Mailbutler GmbH
  • 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!

  • It's a good investment as it is cheap to pay for and it gives me all the work space I need.
  • Amazing way to just keep a clean tidy workspace.
  • Ability to switch between apps is fantastic as they are all on the left hand side bar.
