Editors' Review

Postbox for Mac's streamlined interface and automatic syncing to existing accounts makes it a good e-mail manager. Additional features, including social media integration, further add to the program's appeal.

Postbox for Mac's main menu includes a row of buttons along the top that operate all of the common e-mail features. These include syncing to the Internet for new mail, archiving, replying, and forwarding, among others. A bar on the left side allows users to see which e-mail accounts are active, and to switch between them. The response time for changing accounts was quick. The main window contains all of the messages for the active account, which are displayed clearly. Users can also change the size and format of message information, as well as view things like to-dos, images, and e-mail attachments. The ability to add multiple e-mail accounts from services like Gmail and Apple Mail, as well as manual e-mail server setup, is an excellent feature, allowing users to see their new messages from a number of sources in a single program.

In addition to working well as an e-mail account manager, Postbox for Mac's ability to work with multiple e-mail addresses will appeal most to savvy computer users with a number of different accounts.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Postbox for Mac 3.0.8.
