Sometimes the morass of Mail windows on a Mac can just become too much. Various apps have tried to help manage this in various ways: Sparrow by bringing the streamlined Tweetie aesthetic to mail, Postbox by in-line quick replies, and so on.

Even so, more often than not, when I close Mail for the day, I’m closing about a dozen or two blank or half-written email windows that have been opened during the day, then forgotten. Why can’t sending an email be as painlessly fire-and-forget as sending an IM? Enter QuickMailer.

QuickMailer is a new $0.99 app in the Mac App Store that does just one thing: allow you to send quick email messages from the OS X menu bar, without getting distracted by other tasks.

It’s super simple to set up, automatically slurping in your main email account and allowing you to send mails. It also has full access to your address book. There aren’t many options, but that’s really the whole point: this is for firing off an email in a quick blaze without allowing yourself any time to be distracted, not a dedicated email app.
