Pros

This tool is wonderful for anyone who uses email for work, it is especially useful if you have multiple inboxes or a high volume of mail. The price is affordable and the value for money is great.
I have enjoyed using this very much. It has saved me from forgetting important deadlines or forgetting to respond to important emails when I was not ready to.
It is very easy to use and works wonderfully with Gmail. The main pro for me is the ability to set reminders and schedule outgoing mail (rather it be a new thread or a response).

Pros

I appreciate the ability to prioritize and level load my emails out. Due to this feature, I am able to end work days feeling like I did what HAD to be done before logging off.
I like the most simple planning based on - simple too - prioritizing tool. It helps me the most in keeping things to be done and not forgotten, and - most important - very easy to be processed.
Overall experience is great, once you entered LeanMail you do not want to go back. Customer Service is also excellent.

Cons

The 'pause' button feature does not work well - once you pause an email from a recipient, I have struggled to unpause the email which is odd.
I think I just had different expectations and ended up being disappointed.
There were a few times where I would run up on my sending limit and had to wait out the month to send more emails which was frustrating.

Cons

Frankly speaking, as it is add-in to MS Outlook, I'm afraid that if I change my job, I will loose my license, and will have to convince new employer for new one.
I don't know - I should be when I from time to time loose it do to some IT issue - then I am lost.
Seeing only 10-20 total emails throughout the day in my total inbox is such a stress reliever.

LeanMail helps me sort incoming mails quickly.

Pros

LeanMail helps me sort incoming mails quickly. It also helps me with planning mails and keeping track of mail-strings.

Cons

It still requires you to work hard, but at least you get something for the effort.

LeanMail

A great tool for organizing your email

Reviewed a month ago

Overall when sorting out a few kinks and figuring out how to use LeanMail so that it behaves like I want it, it is a great product and one I highly recommend.

Pros

Very easy to use and getting into. LeanMail helps me to organize my emails and keeps my inbox clean. It has completely changed the way I use Outlook and keeps down my stress levels.

Cons

If you use the same subject when you email several different customers, it will set the response emails with all categories. I would like the ability to remove certain columns like "mentions" for example, because it is not optimized for smal laptop screens.

Vendor response

Thank you so much for your review of LeanMail, Andreas. It's a great pleasure serving you. I apologize for the features that you would like to change, but they are hard-wired into Outlook by Microsoft, and for that reason we can not change them. Best regards, Michael

Great tool, great people at LeanMail

Pros

Great tool for efficient execution of inbox and planning

Cons

Lack of GDPR security policies (deletion rules)

Vendor response

Thank you so much for your excellent review Birthe. I'm glad you brought up GDPR because a number of our customers aren't aware that we actually do provide these security policies, albeit on a per-customer basis. The reason is that every customer has different requirements. Please let us know if at some point you would like to discuss which customizations you would like. Again, thank you very much for your review.

Not only does it file and sort my mail nicely. It increases the speed of my workflow. The amount of time saved, reading through email agian and agian, and not sorting and planning is now fast and effective with minimum timeusage!

Reviewed 2 years ago

Overall experience is great, once you entered LeanMail you do not want to go back. Customer Service is also excellent.

Pros

After a brief introduction and smooth installation I enjoyed seeing the benefits at once.

Cons

LeanMail comes with a new set of behaviors for the users to turn into habit. Habit creation is always hard and if you do not succeed, you will not benefit as much. So it comes down to your commitment.

Vendor response

Thank you very much for the review, Magnus. I agree, it comes down to your own personal commitment, and we are committed to helping our customers navigate exactly that.

Ideal for keeping focused and staying "on top" of everything

Reviewed a month ago

I have been using Leanmail for more than 12 years. Anyone who must process a significant volume of emails daily really needs to consider this tool to keep it all under control.

Pros

Helps organize email in a fashion to optimize productivity.

Cons

Doesn't work with Microsoft's latest version (because Microsoft's new "web based" version doesn't offer plug-in features the same as in the past.)

Vendor response

Mitch, it has been and continues to be an honor and a pleasure to serve you. Thank you for your review and for being a loyal advocate of LeanMail. Best regards, Michael

LeanMail has become a must in my day to day

Reviewed 3 years ago

It is a dynamic and easy-to-use software once you have the correct training and get used to the way of working. You save time and reduce stress by being able to properly manage your inbox.

Pros

The way I am able to organize my inbox by archiving, prioritizing and planning my emails has saved me time for other activities. I have finally been able to answer my emails on time and maintain efficient communication with my clients.

Cons

At first getting used to working in a different way with my inbox made me a little bit desperate. But once you get into the habit, everything is incredibly simple.

Vendor response

Thank you for your review Alejandro. Keep up the great work!

Take control of your outlook

Reviewed 3 years ago

Planning my day to day work, scheduling my emails for when i need to get action on them. Having the Next Action solves some of the time spend reading the emails aswell. At most i look at the same email twice before it has been archived.

Pros

When we first got introduced to LeanMail, we only had the first module with archiving. This was a somewhat nice feature, it made everything easy to see and find. But i was also introduced to automatic category assignment which didn't help out that much. With module two, where we had Prioritize and Plan... Waow, instantly i got more time in my everyday, the hole process of managing my mailbox, i thought...

Cons

You're forced to use a new way of managing your mailbox. This was the hardest to overcome, i'm a folders guy (or used to be) and like the way it was working, so being forced by a sales person to use their product when i had a great workflow was something i had to work on.

Vendor response

Hey Casper, I really appreciate the effort you made in writing such a comprehensive, frank and kind review.

I know what I need to take care of

Reviewed 2 years ago

Leanmail has been a great tool for many years now. I am able to manage my mailbox and keep it very clean so that I don't forget items that need to be taken care and prioritize my day. Seeing only 10-20 total emails throughout the day in my total inbox is such a stress reliever.

Pros

Quick Prioritization and setting Next Action elements

Cons

When working on Today's mail, it would be great to have another priority or two. For example, I have a couple of high priority items, and a few normal items. I will take an action step but then I need to wait on a response, so I don't want to move it to the next day, because I want to reach out to the person I am waiting on a response from again before the end of the business day. So, a hack I do is add an "x" in the My Priority feild, so that it pushes that email to the bottom, so I don't continually see it in my list of emails that I have not taken the next step for that day. Hopefully, I am being clear.

Vendor response

Thank you for great the review, Tony. Remember that you can use the "P" priority (P for Personal) as a third option.

Again this software makes my work live easier - I am in control of my mail not the other way around.

Pros

This software gives me an easy overview of all me mail and it is very easy to use after getting a very good introduction from the company. I always know what are in my mailbox and what to focus on today. I can imagine not having LeanMail - then I will for sure loose my overview of all my tasks. And easily forget something.

Cons

I don't know - I should be when I from time to time loose it do to some IT issue - then I am lost :-)
