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

- Darkened some of the font colors to improve contrast, particularly for low resolution themes
- Created a "Bold Unread" option in Preferences|Options / Display / General to increase visibility for unread messages
- Released support article on how to customize font colors.
- Fixed an issue with forward/reply arrows displaying in reverse on low resolution themes
- Fixed an issue that prevented searches from working properly in the PT-BR locale
- Fixed an issue that prevented topics with period in the topic name from migrating to Postbox 5


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 2.16.11

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.

What's new in 2.16.11?

 - Due to a bug in iOS 10, your notification sounds may not properly play until you restart your iPhone (press and hold the power and home buttons for 10 seconds).
- In groups, you can now mention specific people to get their attention by typing the @ symbol and choosing someone from the picker. 
- When forwarding messages, you can now send to multiple chats at once 
- Ask Siri to send WhatsApp messages or place WhatsApp calls (iOS 10+) 
- Answer WhatsApp calls right from your lock screen, just like a standard phone call (iOS 10+) 
- A new Widget lets you quickly jump to a recent chat or see which chats have unread messages (iOS 10+)
