Postbox – new email starts here!

Hello all,

A quick note before I head out into the mountains for an amazing wine dinner with my wife.  Quite looking forward to it.

But I wanted to share that I have decided to move away from the Mail that is part of OSX to a new mail client.  After some searching around and a lot of reading I have picked Postbox.  Installing it now, and we will see how it goes.  I like how it will not impact my existing email infrastructure so I could return to Apple Mail if necessary.

I will let you know how this goes!  Below are some links in case you are interested.  BTW, if I still had Zimbra or Exchange in the back end of my email I would likely still use Apple Mail but I have Google so I have little odd things I would like to avoid and in theory with Postbox I can.

Review by 9 to 5 –

Email filtering strategy –

Postbox blog –

Postbox key features –

Using Gmail with Postbox –

Postbox extensions –


Postbox Lightning – in case I do Google Calendar inside of Postbox – – I think I will try and go back to BusyCal – I used to use it a lot and like it.

If you read MacWorld magazine that is where I got the idea for this.  In either the June or July issue they review a bunch of mail apps, and while Mailmate won (I think), Postbox did well and when reading and looking around Postbox won it for me.

Have a great weekend, and hopefully Sunday or Monday you will see my newsletter.

    1. Yes it does IMAP, and the to address search is excellent. Even pulls in pictures for people from a bunch of places. Definitely worth a test!
