If you are fond of handy little helper apps for your Mac like MenuTab for Facebook, Tab for Google+ or MailTab for Gmail, you will definitely want to consider adding Rasmus Porsager and Anders Myrup’s QuickMailer to your daily productivity arsenal. Do you hate having to launch a full-blown email client just to fire off a quick email message? Worry not; QuickMailer comes to the rescue (via Cult of Mac). All this little Mac app does is sit at your menu bar and wait for a keystroke combination.

As seen above: An elegant, clean compose window will pop up with the To, Subject, and Body fields, and an option to attach a file, access preferences and send your message. The program works through your primary Mail.app account and looks up previous recipients to provide auto-completion. Also handy: QuickMailer can remember fields for your next message. A 99-cent download from the App Store, QuickMailer is a real lifesaver. One more screenshot is right below the fold.
