Maybe cold outreach is already your #1 source of leads and sales, or maybe you’re looking to ramp up your outreach activity. Either way, it’s vital you select the best outreach solution for your business, and your search has brought you to two of the most popular tools on the market: Lemlist and QuickMail.

Sure, we’re biased, but we truly believe QuickMail is the smart choice for most startups and SMEs — especially:

  • Professional services firms

  • SaaS platforms

  • Lead gen agencies

  • Recruiters

  • Business consultants

Read on and we’ll weigh up the key differentiators in the battle of Lemlist vs QuickMail…

Why Use QuickMail?

QuickMail is an outreach solution that works with Gmail, Outreach, and any other inbox provider. While there’s no shortage of outreach platforms out there, QuickMail stands out from the crowd in three essential areas:

Reliable Results

We’ve been industry leaders for nine years.

In that time, we’ve developed pioneering outreach technology like inbox rotation and free auto-warming, all with the goal of helping our users avoid the disruption and revenue loss caused by constant changes to the email ecosystem.

So we understand what it takes to generate consistent results from cold email, adapting our tools and processes to give your campaigns the greatest chance of reaching your prospects’ main inboxes.

That’s why we’ve got a 4.6-star rating on G2.

Delightful User Experience

We’re confident that if you choose QuickMail, you’ll love our user experience.

We make it easy to manage multiple campaigns, scale your outreach activity by adding new inboxes, and access the clear, actionable analytics you need to improve results.

And if you need a helping hand along the way, you can reach out to our expert support team…

Expert Support

When it comes to customer support, some outreach solutions are all about closing tickets.

At QuickMail, we’re more concerned with actually solving problems.

We don’t bother with one-size-fits-all suggestions and boilerplate replies because we understand no other business has a workflow that’s exactly like yours. Instead, we take the time to dig into the challenge you’re facing and provide tailored guidance.

Whether you’ve got a basic question, a complex workflow, or an unconventional setup, our experts are ready and waiting to help you execute more successful outreach campaigns.

Of course, we don’t expect you to just take our word for it.

Not when our customer reviews do the job for us:

Why Do Businesses Choose QuickMail Over Lemlist?

Now that we’ve listed the key features of each platform, let’s look at the areas in which QuickMail really impresses vs Lemlist…

Inbox Rotation

What Sets QuickMail Apart:

  • We literally invented inbox rotation, so we know what we’re doing!

  • Scale email sends by adding multiple inboxes to a campaign.

  • Each QuickMail plan includes multiple sending inboxes — up to five on our Basic plan, up to 20 with QuickMail Pro, and up to 50 with our Expert plan.

How Lemlist Compares:

  • Only recently added inbox rotation as a feature, so it’s comparatively untested.

  • Lemlist charges per seat — and each new inbox represents a new seat. So you’re caught between balancing cost, deliverability, and scalability.

Stability and Reliability

What Sets QuickMail Apart:

  • We’ve been industry leaders for nine years and pioneered game-changing outreach tools like inbox rotation and free auto-warming, so we know how to navigate the ever-changing email landscape while minimizing downtime and lost revenue for our users.

  • We have individual accounts sending 40,000+ emails per day without issue.

  • Our agency setup makes it simple to manage 100+ clients without slowing down.

How Lemlist Compares:

  • System lags are highly frustrating and disruptive, even at lower sending volumes. At scale, they can be a nightmare.

  • Lemlist users report experiencing a “new bug every week”.

What Sets QuickMail Apart:

  • Every QuickMail account allows you to add unlimited team members and multiple inboxes.

  • Individual actions are tracked via the audit log, making it easy to share the workload, track activities, and work together.

  • No need for team members to share login credentials to make needed changes to settings or campaigns.

How Lemlist Compares:

  • With Lemlist, one email address = one seat = one account. So going from one to two email addresses or team members will double your monthly spend.

  • Team members don’t have access to settings for other team members, like signatures or send limits.

Email Deliverability

What Sets QuickMail Apart:

  • QuickMail uses an approved Gmail API for sending emails with better deliverability.

  • Randomly generated metadata leaves minimal trace on emails, making it impossible for email service providers to bulk-identify or bulk-block emails sent from our platform.

  • Proven deliverability at scale, with individual accounts sending over 40,000 emails a day.

How Lemlist Compares:

  • Lemlist adds messy html to emails, which can hamper deliverability.

  • The platform lacks deliverability-enhancing features that spread sends across multiple inboxes.

Reply Handling

What Sets QuickMail Apart:

  • Replies from prospects are automatically pulled into the Opportunities folder for easy accessibility and oversight — even if they responded in a new email thread.

  • Replies to campaign emails are assigned to the inbox owner and can be re-assigned, previewed, and triaged without removing the bold “needs attention” indicator.

  • Status shows how long each reply has been waiting for a response from your team.

  • CC and BCC replies, snooze, and add labels for clearer accountability.

How Lemlist Compares:

  • Direct replies to campaign emails are automatically pulled into Tasks, but they aren’t organized by client or campaign, which can get confusing for agencies or sales teams running multiple campaigns.

  • Replies can be assigned to team members, but can’t be snoozed, forwarded, or CC-ed, so it’s harder to tell if replies are being handled on time.

Customer Support

What Sets QuickMail Apart:

  • QuickMail’s support is world-class, as demonstrated by our glowing G2 reviews.

  • We’re rated 9.2/10 for quality of support based on our G2 reviews, compared to the industry average of 8.5.

How Lemlist Compares:

  • Lemlist scores lower than us for quality of support, with a G2 rating of 8.8.

  • Lots of Lemlist users complain about canned responses to support queries, long wait times, and generally poor customer service:

Lemlist vs QuickMail: Price Comparison

Instantly and QuickMail price comparison

A one-person business consultancy has totally different needs to a SaaS startup or a large lead generation agency.

For that reason, QuickMail and Lemlist offer a range of plans aimed at businesses of different sizes and at different stages of their growth journeys. Let’s dig into each platform’s pricing tiers and what you’ll get for your money.

(All pricing information correct at time of publication.)

Entry Level

QuickMail’s Basic Plan costs $49 per month, with no minimum-term contract. It includes up to 30,000 emails per month, up to five email addresses for sending, up to 10,000 prospects, and unlimited team members.

Customers can access all the essentials they need to run cold outreach campaigns, plus advanced features like A/Z testing and scheduling automation. They also get an account dashboard incorporating campaign-level stats — essential for optimizing performance.

Lemlist’s entry-level Standard plan is more expensive, at $59 per seat per month. So adding five email addresses would set you back $295 per month. However, it does include unlimited email sending.


Priced at $89 per month (again with no fixed contract), QuickMail’s mid-tier Pro Plan allows you to send up to 100,000 emails monthly to up to 50,000 active prospects from 20 different email addresses.

It includes all the same stuff as the Basic Plan, but with a bunch of additional functionality, including advanced analytics and native integrations with HubSpot and Pipedrive.

By contrast, Lemlist’s Pro plan costs $99 per user per month. So if you want 20 different email addresses, you’ll need to pay them an eye-watering $1,980 per month — compared to $89 per month with QuickMail.

On the plus side, all Lemlist plans include unlimited email sends.


At the upper end of the scale, QuickMail’s Expert Plan costs $129 per month with no minimum term. For that money, you can send up to 300,000 emails a month, have 100,000 active prospects, and leverage 50 different email addresses.

While all our plans offer all the essential features you need to run high-performing outreach campaigns, our Expert Plan offers a bunch of advanced extras — including API access and automated follow-up campaigns launched by AI based on the recipient’s response.

Lemlist’s Enterprise plan — designed for teams with 10+ sales reps — offers premium features like personalized 1:1 onboarding, exclusive coaching, and access to a dedicated key account manager.

However, Lemlist doesn’t publish pricing information for this plan, so you’ll need to speak to their sales team.
