Great email client

5.0 5 years ago

Comments: Very positive. I've received good customer service and the price is very reasonable given that it's a one-off payment.

Pros:

Set out nicely with a clear design. Love having whatsapp dropbox and google calendar all in one place integrated into the email client.

Cons:

There is nothing that I can think of I don't like about the product. I am very happy with it.

Alternatives Considered:

Lifetime Licenses to good to be true.

4.0 3 months ago

Comments: Good until they released 3.0 and destroyed all trust with current long-term loyal customers.

Pros:

The simplicity of using this was a dream, the previously offered lifetime product was a nice touch but they have stopped honoring this now.

Cons:

It is no longer honouring the lifetime licenses.

Lifetime Licence, lasted less than 10 months

1.0 last month New

Comments: Shocking, bad, not good, got ripped off big time, help non existent

Pros:

Easy to read and set up, able to display emails in the order that is best suited to you.

Cons:

Search function totally useless, settings function useless, unable to transfer any of the email data away from mailbird, you have to pay for a third party app to fulfill this when you want to leave. Getting hold of anyone for help on anything impossible, unless you wish to purchase, they are very quick to jump on that one.

Mailbird Response

last month

Hi Juanita, We're naturally sorry for the disappointment caused - however I can see that we have replied to each and every one of the support requests which you created: - Ticket #496706 (created yesterday). - Ticket #489238 (created Jan. 6th 2024). - Ticket 462518 (created Apr. 11th 2023). - Ticket #462013 (created Apr. 6th 2023, which you rated positively). You stated that our customers must pay for a third-party app - this is incorrect, since we have built a tool to export data for free. More information can be found here: https://support.getmailbird.com/hc/en-us/articles/115013591887-How-to-Use-Mailbird-Export-Tools While we are sorry that we could not implement the search functions that you requested, we did acknowledge your feature request and provided you with prompt replies. We receive countless feature requests for all sorts of improvements and functionalities, and we do our very best to prioritise new features or improvements based on the level of interest they receive.

It just works!

5.0 3 years ago

Comments: I have many different inboxes that I have to keep track of. Having to switch accounts to check everything at least a few times a day was very time-consuming. Since switching to MailBird I get all my accounts synced to a unified inbox and notified whenever I receive an email. That makes it much easier to stay on top of my work and keep track of everything with minimal effort which could easily save a lot of time.

Pros:

The best thing about MailBird is that everything works. I have been using it for many years and it has been very reliable with no problems at all. Everything you should expect from your mail client is there with a few extra features as well but most importantly I have not encountered a single issue since I started using MailBird.

Cons:

It might look a little bit basic and does not compare with all the fancy web-like interfaces that most newer software has. But don't let it fool you, there are a lot of great features that make MailBird a powerful tool, and most importantly what it does, it does well.

Clean and fast email client

5.0 3 months ago

Comments: Been using daily for several years with 10+ accounts on all kinds of servers from local self-hosted to exchange and Gmail. Works excellent and support is pretty good too for the rare occasion it doesn't.

Pros:

Multiple accounts incl combined mailbox.

Cons:

I wish they focused more on core E-mail features such as auto-classification or maybe spam filtering and less on integrating every tool out there.
