Send off an email with just two keyboard shortcuts:
To compose email: ctrl+⌥+⌘+m
To send an email (same as Mail.App): ⇧+⌘+d
QuickMailer can send emails using your primary Mail.App account, no configuration is needed.
Or, if you don't use Mail.app, it can be configured with custom smtp settings*.
The menubar item glows red when you have unread mails.
You have the possibility of making the app remember individual fields (to, subject, message, attachments), so that they are right there ready for your next email. Quick, mail away!
*SMTP supported on lion and above. (NTLM authentication not supported)
Changed: Better recipient autocompletion
Fixed: Crash on systems on which Mail.app was never used

So Easy to Use, and Easy to Maintain Your Focus - Whenever I move over to my mail client, I am distracted by the collection of flagged emails. Then, there are the three pointless ads I have filtered into my "Ads" mailbox, and in the impulse of the moment I wanna know what they're for… Needless to say, email easily distracts me while I'm trying to get work done. Quickmailer is an awesome cure for the easily sidetracked, such as myself. Anywhere on my Mac, I can send a quick email out and never need to view Mac's Mail app at the same time, thus avoiding all the incoming email distractions. As a very simple utility, Quickmailer does everything that it should. Since the most recent update, I've found it works robustly, and I don't mind recommending it to others. I am glad to use Quickmailer, and think I will still be using it for years to come. It's most definitely worth the price.
Cool Idea - Major Bug - This app is really cool but it causes the integrated graphics to turn on. So whenever this app is running your Dedicated graphics card will turn on, greatly depleting battery life.

Needs Bcc - I bought this with the intention of using it for quick email. My problem is that I BCC myself on most mail that I send internally. As a result I have sent maybe 5 emails and I have had the product for quite some time now. I would use it to send most if not all of my mail if it had bcc support. I have emailed the developers but haven’t even received an acknowledgement that they received the e-mail. Seriously…bcc support is a no brainer...
Doesn’t work. - I want, very simply, one keystroke to open an app, some typing to compose the message, and a keystroke/combo to send it. With Quickmailer, I’m re-typing my own email address over and over, flitting between subject and body, and then when I hit send… Half the time it errors out. This is the simplest app concept in the world. Why isn’t there a good one we can buy?
Integrates Well with OmniFocus Pro - If you have OmniFocus Pro, you know that the app has a scheme to send actions to the OFP Inbox, aka the “No Context” folder, by using a dedicated OmniSync email address. Since Omnigroup doesn’t make available a menu bar app to do this without email, the shortcut is to use Quickmail to send these action item emails to OFP’s dedicated address. Set up the app to send in STMP, uncheck the “Clear To” box, type in the address and there is a dedicated menu bar app which will put action items in your OFP inbox. Quickmail can always be used for its intended purpose, but if you have a workflow that involves a lot of OFP entries that you don’t mind batch filing into more descriptive Contexts or Projects at less intense times, this is a simple, smooth and efficient way to do that.
