Hello, this is Paul with Mailbutler, and in this tutorial I'm going to help you to get started with Mailbutler, including setting up your account, downloading the extension, and I'll walk you through the basic user interface. But what is Mailbutler? Well, Mailbutler is not a separate email client. It's actually an extension that you can add to Apple Mail, to Gmail, or to Outlook, and it sits on top of the email account that you already use and it adds a whole suite of additional features, power, and functionality to make your inbox smarter.

To get started, I'm going to go to Mailbutler.io and I'm going to click try for free. It'll take you to a signup page and you can fill in your email, address your name, you can choose your team size, and then you're going to want to set a password. Finally, I will accept the terms and privacy policy, and then I'll click sign up.

Next, you'll be given a choice to install the extension to your chosen email client. I'm going to use Apple Mail for this example, but you can install an extension for Gmail using Google Chrome or for Outlook if you are a Microsoft Outlook user.

So for Apple Mail, I'm just going to go ahead and click install. I'll download the install file. I am going to open my downloads folder, and then I'm going to double click the zip file to unzip the Mailbutler app. I'm going to skip the installation steps, but you simply need to double click the Mailbutler app and follow the onscreen instructions to install the extension in Apple Mail.

Now that we have the Mailbutler app installed, I now need to enable the Mailbutler extension. To do that, I'm going to click on Mail in the toolbar at the top and open my mail preferences. On the General tab, I'm going to go down to manage plugins, and I'm going to tick the box next to the Mailbutler extension.

My Mac is going to ask me to allow access, and then finally, I will click apply and restart mail. Now that you've installed the Mailbutler extension, the first thing you're going to notice is there's a few additional buttons in the Apple Mail interface.

In the toolbar. At the top, you'll notice a new drop down window. You'll notice a new button here. And the Mailbutler icon here. In the compose window, you'll notice new buttons here, here, and here. And we'll be looking at what all of these different buttons do in future videos.

When you click this button in the Apple Mail toolbar, it opens the Mailbutler sidebar. For now, I just want to point out there is a message tab and a contacts tab. In each of these tabs, you'll find various widgets and features, which again we'll be looking at in future videos.

And finally, if you click this cog icon in the Mailbutler Sidebar, we have a QuickStart Guide. And we'll be looking at each of these features in future videos. But for now, feel free to click into each of these guides if you'd like to learn more about the various Mailbutler features.

As you can see, getting started with Mailbutler only takes a couple of minutes. So that's it for this video, but check out my next video where I will start to share some of my favorite features.
