"A well developed mail program."

June 17, 2013  |  By davarn

 |  Version: Postbox Express 1.0.1

Pros

It intigrates well with windows xp. It transitions well between mail and the internet. Seems to have most of the bells and whistles as outlook express. I'm not a varied nor sophisticated user but I find the transition between Postbox and outlook express to be easy. I like the custom labeling feature that lets me tag each mail piece and then sort or search using the tags.

Cons

The handling of folders in postbox is somewhat more complicated than outlook. There are more handling features relating to the folders.

Summary

I was having a problem isolating 2 different mail boxes using outlook express and its identities feature. No matter what I tried mail from both identities would end up randomly in either mail identity I opend. I decided to look for another solution by searching for a different mail program. I'm now running both mail programs one for each of my 2 mail boxes. The isolation works out perfectly. The look and feel is similar enough that its not confusing. Not being a sophisticated user I'm sure there are many features I'm simply not aware of and have no use for. They don't impose themselves on me and for that I'm greatful. I'm running this on a very minimal windows xp system. Its an 800 mh pentium III with 512 Mb memory and a 70 Gb drive. It's slow but I have had very few hangups even when I've drifted into 5 or 6 layers of web from the open mail piece. I've even had web pages open from two different letters at the same time.

"A Good and Solid Email Program."

January 21, 2013  |  By Smeaga31

 |  Version: Postbox Express 1.0.1

Pros

Very Small, Very Fast, Very Easy, Very Stable & all around practical.

Cons

Like some other reviewers said, it could use a few extras like emoticons and stationary and the like. This is very utilitarian.

Summary

Very Small, Very Fast, Very Easy, Very Stable & all around practical.
I'm looking forward to future development.

"Terrible, awful, do not download"

October 09, 2011  |  By JeanieWhitelaw

 |  Version: Postbox Express 1.0.1

Pros

Looks sort of like Outlook Express

Cons

Zero help available. When I set the account to "Not delete" messages from server it did anyway. When I tried to find help there was NONE. When I tried to re-do the account setup it deleted the account and ALL of my emails were deleted.

Summary

I have tried Windows Live, Thunder-whatever and all because MS decided to get rid of Outlook Express on Windows 7. I went from XP to W7 and didn't research the email client issue. THIS product has caused me immeasurable problems due to the above. IF you download, be very, very careful about using it.

"Reliable and easy to use."

June 24, 2011  |  By faith1110

 |  Version: Postbox Express 1.0.1

Pros

Fast service much appreciated.

Cons

Could use a few extras, e.g. smilies, notifiers, designs.

Summary

I stopped using Incredimail because it was crashing too often. After trying several replacements I chose Postbox Express, mainly because of the speed and reliability of the program.

"I like it! It's simple and fast."

January 27, 2011  |  By Mark_Nearhood

 |  Version: Postbox Express 1.0.1

Pros

Simple user interface that gives you the features you need for email. Doesn't hog system resources.

Cons

All the extensions are based on Mozilla Thunderbird, couldn't find any written just for this version.

Summary

It does what it says and very well, for free it's a fantastic replacement for Outlook and Windows mail, I may check out other email software but will keep using this one.

"It performs wonderfully for the average user."

November 24, 2010  |  By ccmerrill

 |  Version: Postbox Express 1.0.1

Pros

Post Box Express is extremely easy to set up. I have not gotten any error messages. I've been using this email server for only about a month.

Cons

I am used to using Incredimail, but for some unknown reason I can't use it on this computer. So the downside for me is that it does not have any of the cutsie email pages to send with animations.

Summary

I like Post Office Express because it is easy to use. I use it for personal email. I don't get the error messages I used to get with Incredimail. The mail is delivered and sent quickly, with no fuss.

Updated on Nov 24, 2010

I'm sorry that I made an error in the summary. The program is Post Box Express, not Office. I apolozige for the error.
