Postbox 4.0.8
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 4.0.8 brings these changes (see the changelog for more info):

- Code signing for Postbox on Windows, so warnings do not appear during install
- Added Protocol Logging to the Trouble-Shooting Panel
- Improved the usability for URL Autocomplete in Compose 
- Improved the first load results for Contacts in the Compose Sidebar 
- Fixed a regression that caused an issue with File and Image Views 
- Fixed an issue where context-clicking a folder and selecting New Folder or New Subfolder would default to the parent folder
- Reduced interface jitter introduced with show/hide links in Accounts / Folders Pane


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

Your Comments & Opinion

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!

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.11

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

Version 2.12.11 brings:

• Links that you share or receive will now include a rich preview. When sending a link, you have the option to not include a rich preview.
• Additional 3D Touch features: You can now quickly Peek and Pop chats.
• Redesigned Settings tab. 
• You can now view all your starred messages across all your chats in Settings — Starred Messages.
