Mozilla-based Postbox e-mail software launches

updated 03:00 pm EDT, Wed September 9, 2009

Includes tabbed browsing

Postbox has launched a new self-named, Mozilla-based e-mail application. The software features fast searches using operators, and a text preview mode. Content tabs allow quicker access to attachments, images, links and contacts. A related option is Find by Contact, which brings up messages, images, links and attachments for a specific contact in tabbed form. Messages in tabs can be ordered and reordered.

Topic organization allows grouping disparate materials for a project- or idea-based workflow. The app also features mail archival, to-do tagging and support for add-ons. Security features include anti-phishing and malware protection, and auto-updating to keep the program current.

Postbox works with Mac OS X 10.4 or higher and is Snow Leopard-ready. It costs $40, with an additional $20 charge for a family five-pack, and a $25 charge for lifetime upgrades.

    $40!!!

    Get real. Its not THAT good. No way Id pay $40 for an email client that adds nothing more than the built-in Snow Leopard Apple Mail.

    Re: $40

    Well, you could try it before you argue that it offers nothing more than the built-in Snow Leopard email.

    And with this (or any 3rd party client), you don't have to wait for Apple to decide to release an OS update, and then update your OS, in order to get a new Mail feature.
