Postbox 7.0.7
Try this new powerful cross-platform email client

When you think of installing a new email client, there aren’t too many options. If you happen to be both a Windows and Mac user, and want to use the same client across both computers, Thunderbird would be your most obvious choice.

Microsoft Outlook and the Mac-based Entourage are obvious options. However, Entourage isn’t the best commercial e-mail client and, to be fair, it isn’t cheap. You have to purchase Mac Office to install it on your computer and most users prefer the free Apple Mail.

Another choice is Postbox. This is a cross-platform commercial email client, based on the Mozilla platform, but with a whole host of new and powerful features that make it worth considering. If you’re used to a tabbed interface in your web browser, then using Postbox will be a breeze. You can open multiple emails within tabs, rather than separate windows. It separates the components of your email, so you can quickly see the main message, attachments, images, links and contacts associated with the email.

Search for an email within Postbox and you do not have to wait minutes for the result. The search options are presented immediately, much like spotlight in Mac OS X.

Reading emails through Postbox is made easy by the use of threaded discussions, so it will group together emails from various people, around the same topic. You can quickly open the topic and see every response. Ideal for following a conversation.

Postbox 7.0.7 brings these changes (see the changelog for more info):

- We added 4 beautiful new themes – the new light themes are Lavender and Calypso, and the new dark themes are Charcoal and Gulf Blue – enjoy!
- Improved the image scaling icons in the Compose window when using a dark mode theme
- Fixed an issue with the Tab key skipping over fields in the Compose window
- Fixed an issue with the "is" Topic criteria for Smart Folders

Verdict:

This new email client is ideal for both Windows and Mac users who is seeking a powerful system with a range of professional features

Postbox never again

Posted by: Jan de Vries, 24 April 2019 16:03

I bought Postbox 4 and 5 for full retail price and tried to update to 6 and figured that they would give me a discount but no way they want another 40 Dollar so if they treat their customers like that I would never recommend it to anybody.
Using Thunderbird now and it works just a good as
Postbox. I really hope they start treating their customers better.

Why would I buy this, exactly???

Posted by: Paul Szilard, 29 August 2012 12:36

I use both Mac and Windows. So I would need to buy BOTH versions of PostBox for a combined price of $60, when I can have Thunderbord, Opera, Mac Mail, Sparrow all for free.

So why on earth would I want to pay for this?
The PC & Tech Authority "review" is a joke. It doesn't list any special features or makes any comparisons with other mail clients. It is simply a repeat of the maker's publicity article!

Windows 10 November 2019 Update ISO (build 1909)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows May 2019 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

November 2019 Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO will give you build 1090 which is the November 2019 Update.
