Postbox is a sophisticated email client, with a myriad of robust productivity options to even satisfy the needs of users that declare themselves exclusive to webmail. This email client is compatible with both Windows and Mac; and is real easy to set up.

This week, we’re giving away 25 copies of Postbox 2, worth almost $750 in total. How awesome is that? If you want to grab one for yourself, read on.

Effortless Setup

If you’ve used or tried Thunderbird, Outlook or Apple Mail, then you know the basic options that Postbox packs. Postbox does include a number of features you wish they or webmail services would implement already.

Starting up with Postbox is really a breeze. To add an email account, you simply have to enter your name, the email address, your password and nothing else. You don’t have to search for the port number as Postbox takes care of that.

In fact, that seems to be what Postbox does best, facilitate things for you. For example, when you first load an email conversation either in the main page or in separate tabs (yes, Postbox comes in a tabbed interface!), a pane to the right shows you handy links to search for attachments or pictures, find URLs, etc. so you can get a clear picture of the whole thread.

Social Networks Without Distracting Feeds

Postbox can also show you pictures of the sender in a pane for more personal communication. It can pull profile pictures and email addresses from either your address book or your friends’ Facebook and Twitter pages once you log in through the mail client.

Not only that, Postbox also lets you update your status on those networks, in addition to FriendFeed so you don’t need extra browser tabs open just to broadcast your latest thought.

Organization With To-Do’s and Topics

Postbox also helps you get organized when it comes to tasks, without additional webpages open. You can mark any conversation as a to-do, which should show up in, for example, Gmail as a starred conversation.

In addition to marking conversations as to-do’s, you can also assign topics to emails for easier searching later on. Topics are Postbox’s way to handle categories. You could think of them as labels in Gmail, but take into consideration that most mail clients present the Gmail labels as folders so Postbox Topics will not appear in Gmail as labels as they are not folders.

They will, however, appear in the Focus Pane, which contains links to commonly-accessed topics and contacts, as well as one-click access to view emails that have attachments, are unread or that were sent at specific times.

Additional goodies packed into Postbox are numerous keyboard shortcuts and a very powerful search engine to filter messages from your large inbox.

Postbox shines for offering lots of incredibly useful and time-saving features that would otherwise take some setup, tinkering and workarounds in other mail clients and services.

Try it out for yourself by downloading a fully-functional, 30-day trial from their website.

    Why do you Force Members/Users to have FaceBook or Twitter accounts to register for give aways? I am a subscriber that enjoys your writings but I refuse to have to join a social networking site to be eligible for anything. That just isn't right.
