Your customers expect application emails to arrive immediately—not eventually. We don't just claim great deliverability. We share live delivery data so you can judge for yourself.
With most providers, when deliverability issues arise, they suggest that paying more for a dedicated IP address will fix the problems. We believe that's an abdication of responsibility to ensure your emails reach customers every time. It’s our job to provide you with great deliverability with or without dedicated IP addresses.
Whether you send thousands of emails or millions of emails, you’ll see the same quality of deliverability across our entire service. You'll be hard-pressed to find a provider more willing to stand by the quality of their shared IPs than Postmark. If or when the time comes that a dedicated IP address makes sense, we'll set you up on one.
Everyone says they have great support. Then you notice they sell an upgraded version of dedicated support for customers who are willing to pay extra.
Customer feedback gathered through Help Scout over the past 60 days.
There’s no VIP section for support with Postmark. You can email us and usually hear back in a couple of hours, or you can reach us via live chat during business hours. If you’re having delivery problems, we’ll never tell you to just upgrade to a dedicated IP address. We’ll dive in and help you get to the bottom of things.
Postmark is an excellent Mandrill alternative, providing everything you’ll need for sending application emails, processing inbound email, and tracking user engagement.

Easy to set up. Great API. Rapid mail delivery and no spam issues. We moved from Mandrill because of terrible deliverability and am pleased to say it’s been well worthwhile....we’ve even saved money. Thanks Postmark Team….you rock!!
You have an excellent user interface and very good spam reputation service. Combined with the pay-what-you-use subscription a better alternative to Mailchimp and its expensive Mandrill moneymaking machine.
Okay @postmarkapp is amazing. Why has no one told me about this? Good riddance to all their competitors I've put up with for too long.
