Does this replace the need for the Escort add-on? I also use Subscriptions by DevDemon, so I may need both, not sure if the two play nicely together or Postmaster simply replaces the need for the Escort module.

Escort will send any and all emails generated by ExpressionEngine (or add-os which use EE's built-in email library) via your selected third-party email service. It's quick an simple.

Postmaster can also do this, but in a more complex manner, if you create a parcel using the send_system_email hook. Its advantage is that you could also customize those emails via the Postmaster parcel you create (as you have to build a template for those system emails). But Postmaster's main strength really is in creating custom email notifications which fire when certain events happen.

If you use Escort for your system-generated emails, and Postmaster for custom emails, they will play together just fine.
