Postbox 1.0 Beta 8 Now Available

March 4, 2009

Thanks to everyone who provided feedback on our first public beta three weeks ago. Your ideas and submissions have really helped to guide the direction of Postbox 1.0b8, which is now available for download.

Here’s what’s new in this release:

  • Improved Conversation View - Postbox will now automatically gather messages from other folders when viewing messages by conversation. (You can also set a preference to only display messages within the current folder, see: Preferences | Display tab.)  To see an expanded view of all messages within a conversation, click the “Show All” button.
  • Quick Look - For Mac 10.5 users, you can now preview attachments and photos using Apple’s Quick Look technology. Select an attachment or photo and press the spacebar to Quick Look, or press the Quick Look button in the Action Bar.
  • Flickr Integration - You can now use the Compose Sidebar to search for and share links to photos from your Flickr account.
  • Hotmail Support - Hotmail POP account setup is now supported within the new account wizard.
  • Other Mac Improvements - More information in Growl alerts, improved notification for unread messages in the Dock, and keyboard shortcut hints in application menus.
  • Performance and Reliability Improvements - See our release notes to review the most recent changes.

Please continue to submit your ideas and thoughtful feedback, as we’re already setting our sights on the next release. And be sure to tell your friends, family, and co-workers about Postbox!

Postbox Beta is Now Available!

February 8, 2009

Today, we’re pleased to announce the public beta of Postbox, a new desktop email application that helps you make the most of your email messages and content.

To start, a gigantic “thank you!” to everyone who participated in the private beta. We had over 10,000 people sign up, and we’ve been absolutely thrilled with the thoughtfulness and detail of the feedback we’ve received.

Turns out, people really care about their email! And it’s no surprise given how much time we spend each day writing, reading, and searching through messages. What we didn’t anticipate was just how desperate people were for solutions to help them make sense of it all.

Our goal is simple: to help you be more productive and successful by providing the best email experience possible. And this first beta is just the beginning, as we have lots more planned for future betas, the 1.0 release, the 2.0 release, and beyond.

So please keep the great feedback coming in, and please be sure to tell your co-workers, family and friends about Postbox.

Best,
The Postbox Team
