Mailead vs Lemlist

Unlock your growth with unlimited mailboxes, unlimited active leads
and send unique cold emails at scale.

Which is better for cold email outreach, Mailead or Lemlist? We'll explore the differences later, examining how many emails can be connected and the monthly email sending limits.

What is Lemlist?

Lemlist, started in 2018, is a leading platform for personalized outreach and finding prospects. It is great at sending messages through different channels, offers tools for tailor-made communication, and lets users easily find their potential clients on the platform. Lemlist also specializes in sending customized messages with images and GIFs.


As you can see, we are 3 to 20 times less expensive than Lemlist, depending on your usage. Certainly, if you're analyzing with just one mailbox, you might think the difference isn't significant. However, cold emailing isn't just about sending mass emails from a single email address, as you risk being banned by your email provider and consequently landing in the spam folder. That's why we'll explore later why one mailbox is not sufficient.


Experts advise against sending more than 50 emails per day. Let's do the math and compare:

However, once one knows how to use it, this activity is not difficult and is even quite convenient. Indeed, if one wants to scale one’s business, then one mailbox connected to the service is not enough for the following reasons:

  1. If we take the average, it is recommended to send between 30 and 50 emails a day, which is at most 1500 emails per month.
  2. Even if you want to send more, you can. But you will quickly end up in spam, and therefore all your messages will simply not be read.

Therefore, no matter what you do, it will be impossible to quickly scale your activity. That’s why it is recommended to connect several mailboxes to multiple your chances.

Multisender and Sender Rotation

As mentioned earlier, if you're looking to scale your business with cold emailing, it's advisable to connect multiple email addresses. This is why the multisender function was created, allowing you to connect several email addresses to one campaign. It’s important to note that charging for each email address, as Lemlist does, is not very fair and won’t help you scale your operations affordably. In contrast, Mailead allows you to connect an unlimited number of email addresses at a fixed price. This feature helps avoid being marked as spam, maintains a healthy sender reputation, and ensures that emails are delivered to the inbox. This tactic is known as sender rotation.

Customer Support

Mailead stands out with customer support available 7/7, unlike Lemlist where you first have to search their documentation for a solution to your problem, and then, if that doesn’t work, try to get in touch with someone.

AI-driven Personalization

Both platforms leverage artificial intelligence to generate highly personalized messages or sequences. However, Mailead differentiates itself with competitive pricing and user-friendly navigation, enhancing the user experience and significantly accelerating the deployment of marketing campaigns.

Advanced Reporting

Lemlist's reporting is not detailed enough and can be confusing, their CSV files include many unnecessary details, making analysis especially challenging for agencies that need to quickly evaluate and refine their messaging. At Mailead, we have chosen to provide advanced, detailed, yet straightforward reporting. There's no longer any need to sift through or search email by email to see if your lead has responded or not. Simply click on each analytic, and you'll have access to your entire list complete with emails, streamlining the analysis process and speeding up your workflow.

Responsive Design and Simplicity

Here's another major difference from Lemlist: device responsiveness.

While Lemlist requires the use of a PC, Mailead supports use across PCs, tablets, and smartphones. This flexibility allows you to launch campaigns and receive as well as respond to emails from anywhere at any time,  for a better experience. As we all know, personal tablets and smartphones are increasingly being used in the workplace today.
