Postmark also provides a smarter way to deal with incoming messages. By parsing those messages, Postmark is able to turn them to JSON format and send them to you in its API. With multiple server locations around the world, your Postmark mails would be sent fast, no matter where their recipients are located.

"Excellent service, premium price"

What do you like best?

The focus on transactional-only email and high deliverability is awesome; most small senders don't have the volume to justify the dedicated IPs every other transactional email provider seems to be pushing.

The UI is nice. Documentation is good and API is easy to use. No complaints.

What do you dislike?

The price is high and there's no free starter/low-volume plan. If slightly better deliverability is not critical for your use case, look elsewhere for more competitively priced solutions.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're not price sensitive and you're looking for something simple with good support that just works, Postmark is a great choice.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Sending transactional email (password resets, email verifications, etc.)

"Great for verification"

What do you like best?

Allows me to verify that emails are being to sent to users of our product, or what the issue is if they are not receiving emails

What do you dislike?

Searching back a long amount of time can be difficult

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Allows us to tell users specifically what they are not receiving emails (hard bounce, soft bounce, etc.)

"Customer Focused, Email Delivery"

What do you like best?

The validation process seems excessive at the start, but once you see the >1% bounce rate, you understand why they do it to keep the IP pools squeaky clean. They have amazing customer service skills, I feel like they are a part of my team.

What do you dislike?

I don't have much to dislike at all. The only thing is that I mentioned to one of the reps about the Live Chat not working in the logged in menu, so I have to go to a different page where I know it's working to pull up live chat if I want to use it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just do it. The setup is work, but well worth it!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Outgoing email. We switched from another provider to Postmark, and couldn't be more satisfied. They are attentive, quick to respond, and our emails are flowing seamlessly.

"Reliable platform for transactional email delivery"

What do you like best?

Once you set it up, it will work just fine. It really helped us grow our business. We don't need to worry about maintaining and upgrading our email tool - Postmark does it all for us.

What do you dislike?

There's nothing we could really complain about. Maybe email open rates could have been higher, but they aren't really responsible for that ;)

Recommendations to others considering the product

We had been using an installable solution that we had to maintain, upgrade, etc.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use it for delivery, inbound and tracking email open rates. It works just fine for all of these types of email communication in terms of our product needs.

"Fantastic to send transactional emails"

What do you like best?

I love to send emails easily with Postmark

What do you dislike?

Would be genius if I could send marketing mail. Those models are too beautiful and so easy to use

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would migrate because is so easy to configure, even migrating from Mandrill or other software to send transactional emails

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Send transactional emails like remembering passwords, account confirmations, but using pretty models from the own site

"We use Postmark to send transactional emails and process incoming messages"

What do you like best?

Postmark is very easy to use. You can implement it easily using either SMTP or API.

What do you dislike?

Set up is a bit annoying. They won't let you do anything unless you've confirmed certain things. We just wanted to do basic sandbox style testing but needed to get our dns records all sorted out first.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Since Mandrill became not very transactional friendly Postmark has been an easy transition.

Good APIs, easy to use and works well for transactional emails.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Go ahead and try it it's fine.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Transactional emails only

"Delightful, simple service"

What do you like best?

Postmark has a clear API, a well designed site, and I trust that they're going to be around in 5 years time because they aren't chasing rocket ship growth. Their emails are fast to be delivered and they really focus on deliverability which is why we chose them.

What do you dislike?

The only thing I dislike and it's not even a big deal is that their templates are linked to an email server, rather than being global to the account. This means you can't use a template from a dev server against the production server. It's an extremely minor point though.

Recommendations to others considering the product

We evaluated Postmark against Sendgrid and Mailgun, but found Postmark fit our needs best.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We want to send transactional email to corporate customers, and we really didn't want to deal with deliverability issues. Postmark seemed like the best company to achieve that.

"Simple transactional email"

What do you like best?

We used Postmark for all of our transactional email, and we've found them extremely simple to use. Their integration with Heroku as well as a wide variety of language-specific libraries has made it very quick to get up and running with them. For most transactional email, implementing Postmark sending in an app is nearly a one-liner, which is fantastic.

What do you dislike?

I've found their web-dashboard to be a little less than clear on some data, but much of this could be my own inexperience with the UI (which I've used very little). It's possible that their pricing becomes expensive at high volumes, but we haven't experienced this.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I can strongly recommend the product for everything we've used it for, but we haven't delved into the more complicated aspects of the app. If you want an API call to send an arbitrary email and their pricing works for you, they're a great bet.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We need a quick way to start getting transactional emails out the door quickly and without a lot of setup. Postmark has done a good job to make that easy, and also to walk us through the various domain configurations required to make it all work properly.

"Great"

What do you like best?

Postmark has been simple and reliable in the 2+ years I've used them. Their API has a fast response time and their batch send calls has been helpful in maintaining a quick response time on our service. They've also been generous in giving us free credits from time to time. They provide webhooks for events you are interested in e.g. bounced emails, spam reports. Their documentation is extensive and comprehensive and also includes libraries for several languages (we use them with python and php).
