Set-up and Features of Postbox
Setting-up Postbox in Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7 is an easy process. Postbox runs not only in WIndows but also in Macintosh 10.5 or higher. The following feature is what you'll get in using Postbox 2:
- Tagging a topic in email and to-dos
- Advanced search function for images, links or file via side bar or search-bar
- Tabbed emails or folders
- Unified Inboxes and account groups
- Content views per conversations in a folder or for all folders
- Quick reply
- POP, IMAP, RSS, and newsgroup accounts support
- Anti-phishing and anti-malware protection
- Editing and annotation of messages
- Web services: Facebook, Twitter, FriendFeed
I see no difference of Postbox support on IMAP with Thunderbirds' IMAP support. It's slow in retrieving messages for each folder, but this could be because of the connection between the computer and Gmail servers. When i switched to using POP server instead of IMAP, I never had a problem in retrieving or downloading messages from the server.
The first time running the indexing of messages took a lot of hours before I was able to take advantage of complete functionality of the advanced search function. When it finished indexing the messages, I enjoyed the power of the email search function by finding the message using a keyword, by contact, a topic, tag, or images.
Postbox advanced search is quite powerful, and I never realized there was such an e-mail program to provide this good search capability. It's better than Microsoft's Outlook search option. The nice feature that I like from Postbox is the easy access to links at the sidebar while viewing a long e-mail and for making my Gmail message labels as folders:
