Overall Satisfaction with Postmark

We are using Postmark to manage all transactional email messages for clients. It was selected because it offers some unique features that help us use it quickly during the development process. Also, it offers both outbound and inbound services that help us address problems related to a client's access to websites - and email is the only way to communicate with our systems.
  • Excellent deliverability
  • Ease of go-live since SMTP is also available (apart from API)
  • Inbound email handling
  • I would love to see more search capabilities
  • More improvements on the templating language
  • More permissions for users
  • High deliverability ensures that all transactional messages are delivered on time.
I have briefly used Sendgrid and it provides similar functionalities. However, I have not used it extensively to express a complete opinion.
Postmark can be used to handle all communications for all transactional messages for a website. Also, it can be used for handling incoming messages that can trigger POST requests for external services.
It is not the correct solution for handling email marketing since it does not offer reporting capabilities and other main features found in email marketing platforms.
