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

Verdict:

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!

Spektrel Art 1.0.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Spektrel Art is a stand-alone program and Photoshop plugin which transforms digital photos into "magical art that glimmers and gleams with intersecting lines of tapered light".

What does that mean? Essentially it applies a configurable mix of effects, enhancing edges, smoothing backgrounds and emphasizing colours. Take a look at the thumbnail for one example, and the official product page has more.

Spektral Art works much like any similar tool. Open an image, click one of the thumbnails to apply a particular preset, or click a few buttons and drag some sliders to fine-tune the results.

There's surprising scope for variation, too. For example, just switching from the "Light" to "Dark" theme can transform a bright and friendly image into something dark and sinister, at least in some cases (results vary depending on the source image).

Please note, the demo version doesn't allow images to be saved.

SPECIAL OFFER: as we write, the developer is offering Spektral Art for free. The offer expires August 29th. Please note that you must provide your name, address and phone number to receive your free license.
