There are several email productivity and privacy tools on the market today and we want to help you choose the tool that works best for you. When comparing lockrMail with Mailman, some of the key differentiating factors to keep in mind are:
lockrMail works with all email clients.
lockrMail is a complementary email tool that is compatible with ALL email clients. Whether you use Outlook, Gmail, Protonmail, or any other email client, you’re able to take advantage of lockrMail’s key features and use lockrMail as the one filtration point for all of your inboxes. Mailman, on the other hand, is a plugin that only works for Gmail accounts.
lockrMail offers advanced filtering functionality.
In addition to binary allow and block options per Sender as offered by Mailman, lockrMail also allows you to create and enable advanced filters. With lockrMail Filters you can curate which emails are delivered from a given Sender based on desired content, and block the rest.
lockrMail offers significantly more premium features for free.
lockrMail’s free offering includes multiple inboxes and unlimited email blocking, in addition to many other features that are only part of Mailman’s premium solution.
lockrMail has a convenient browser extension.
lockrMail’s Chrome extension identifies email registration fields across the web, allowing for easy auto-fill of your lockrMail email address. Additionally, the extension will pop-up and notify you as you browse websites for brands that use your lockrMail email address – reminding you to update filter and forwarding settings as needed.
lockrMail does not authenticate or integrate into your email inbox.
lockrMail does not want to access any of your private emails or personal communications with friends or family. Unlike Mailman, we do not require integration or authentication into your email client. lockrMail only processes emails from brands that are contacting your lockrMail email address.
lockrMail preserves your privacy online.
lockrMail provides you with a public-facing email address that allows you to keep your personal email private and secure. Mailman is only a tool that integrates with your current email and does not offer you the added security of a public email.
lockrMail offers one-click blocking straight from the email.
We know time is important to you and that’s why we designed the lockrMail email wrapper. Unlike Mailman, lockrMail allows you to block emails from senders with just one click – straight from the email using lockrMail’s proprietary email wrapper.
lockrMail users can reply to emails from their lockrMail email address.
When users reply to a brand email that was sent to their lockrMail email address, the response will route through the lockrMail server and appear to the Sender as having been sent from the lockrMail email address. This helps preserve anonymity for our users and maintain consistency when contacting brands’ customer support. This feature is not applicable to Mailman’s solution which does not offer users a secure public-facing email address.
In addition to these unique features, lockrMail shares several key characteristics with Mailman that you may be looking for.
