Postbox – an awesome mail client

with 2 comments

When it comes to email, I am stick to GMail. There is nothing else that i like more than GMail.

But sometime, you just need a desktop application when you are in professional environment. Microsoft Outlook is a big choice, however, i was using Mozilla Thunderbird from quite a while. Which is light weight, have option to subscribe to the newsgroups, global address book. But still there were lot of things missing which i found in postbox.

The software has really nice features, besides having all those features of thunderbird, it has integration with GMail (POP3, IMAP). You can have very easy TODO management, Threaded emails (even for GMail).

One of the really impressing feature of this software is that it manages your attachments, images at one place.


Clicking on the image button will open a new tab name images. It will index the images of your configured mail account once and then your images will be accessible at one place. Same goes to attachments.

Anyone, who is using Mozilla ThunderBird should try this one. You’ll definitely love it.

  1. How does postbox compare to other similar programs? have you heard of Outlook Track-It, that plugin for outlook? it reminds you to follow up to emails, which has been amazing.

    Outlook Track it is not free. :). Moreover, it helps you maintain your images/attachments at one place where you can easily browse all of those.
