Mailjet vs Postmark: What are the differences?

Mailjet: Email delivery made easy. Mailjet is a real-time Cloud Emailing platform: scalable, agile and flexible. Our unique algorithm boosts your deliverability and our platform provides in-depth insight so you can optimize more than ever; Postmark: Email delivery for web apps - done right. Postmark removes the headaches of delivering and parsing transactional email for webapps with minimal setup time and zero maintenance.

Mailjet and Postmark can be primarily classified as "Transactional Email" tools.

Some of the features offered by Mailjet are:

  • Easy 3 minute set-up: Change one SMTP parameter on your website and you are ready to use Mailjet.
  • Real-time efficiency: View the charts, tables and status of your emails sent as they change in real-time, providing you with full transparency.
  • Increased deliverability: Our unique algorithms ensure emails are routed via the most effective IP address. Our partner Return Path (TM) enables us to dynamically measure and manage IP reputation.

On the other hand, Postmark provides the following key features:

  • Create a new virtual server- Instant access to our infrastructure, no waiting required. Create as many servers as you want, for each of your web applications and environments.
  • Drop code into your app- Swap in our SMTP endpoint, or get started with our APIs using one of our send API libraries for Ruby, Rails, .NET, Python, PHP, and more.
  • Send emails and track delivery- A beautiful interface to monitor volume, bounces, spam complaints, and send activity. View full email content to troubleshoot issues.

"simple" is the primary reason why developers consider Mailjet over the competitors, whereas "Simple" was stated as the key factor in picking Postmark.

Swat.io, Docplanner, and Walls.io are some of the popular companies that use Postmark, whereas Mailjet is used by Product Hunt, Lyst, and Drivy. Postmark has a broader approval, being mentioned in 67 company stacks & 15 developers stacks; compared to Mailjet, which is listed in 55 company stacks and 6 developer stacks.

Decisions about Mailjet and Postmark

We chose Postmark as our transactional email service for several reasons:

  • Laser-focus (at the time) on transactional email - their success/speed/reliability with delivering transactional email is amazing. Note, they have now branched out and offer marketing/broadcast email services too.

  • Developer-friendly - Awesome docs and resources. Their Rail gem integrates directly with ActionMailer so nearly all of our code worked without changes.

  • Servers - You can set up "Servers" for different mail streams/workflows to keep things separate and easy to review.

  • Bootstrapped - Wildbit (who makes Postmark) is bootstrapped just like the Friendliest.app and they offer a service credit to other bootstrapped startups.

Of course we chose Coresender to send our own transactional emails :) So I thought I'll let you know how we use it.

  • We set up separate sending accounts for all company needs, eg. transactional emails, monitoring alerts, time to inbox. We even configured our office printers to send emails through Coresender.

  • We have a real-time and extremely usable view into what emails go through each account, so each time anybody reports an email not arriving we're able to assist them in a few seconds

  • We utilize our message timeline feature, so we can learn eg. if people are clicking on password reset links

  • We always know how many of our onboarding emails are being opened which helps us improve them

  • Finally, we have full controll over our suppressions lists, so we can add (and remove!) from them whenever necessary.

To sum up, at Coresender we're eating our own dogfood and it helps us stay connected to the product and understand our customers better.

While building our authentication system, we originally picked Mailgun. However, emails took minutes to arrive and some of them didn't get delivered - or got delivered to spam.

We started looking for a new provider, and settled on Postmark. We love that they track time-to-inbox, it makes me feel they really care about going above and beyond to provide a good service.
