Postbox 2 – A Better Way To Do Email [MakeUseOf Giveaway]

giveawaypostbox2   Postbox 2   A Better Way To Do Email [MakeUseOf Giveaway]With the advancement of web mail, there is little need for desktop clients among regular users. However, the emailing experience on the web is only as good as the browser and internet connection.

Offline email management and customisability are two advantages of the desktop email client over the web solution. Still, there are only a few email clients that can utilize these advantages to provide their users with better email management. Postbox is a serious candidate. And with the release of Postbox 2, this great email client just got better.

We’re giving away 10 copies of Postbox 2 this week. Find out how you can get one! But first, let’s take a look at what Postbox 2 has to offer.

Better Way To Do Email – And More

If you’ve used Postbox (or Postbox Express) before, you’ll know that this email client has many features that make it stand out.

The quick and easy setup

With the help of the Setup Wizard, setting up your mail account to work with this email client is as easy as typing your name, email address and password.

The powerful search

Postbox’s search engine lets the user find almost anything within its interface, provided that the messages and feeds are already downloaded onto your computer and indexed.

The power of tabs

Postbox allows users to display messages, folders, searches, and other kinds of contents with tabs.

Keyboard shortcuts

Postbox also allows users to navigate and access almost everything using keyboard shortcuts. The less time spent on moving between keyboard and mouse, the more time available for email management.

These features are improved with the release of Postbox 2. But the new version also brings sets of new features. There are too many of them to list in this short article (you can view the full list on their website), but here are few of my favourites.

Account Groups

This is a feature that will allow you to combine messages from multiple accounts into one inbox and organize accounts into Groups. So, you can keep your personal and work messages separate, and then work with a unified views for each group.

Focus Pane

This feature lets you break your inbox (and workload) into smaller, more manageable chunks. Your inbox will be filtered by Attributes, Topics, Contacts, and Date. I like to think of it as being similar to Gmail’s Priority Inbox, but on steroids.

To Do View

You can also filter your message by tasks. The display will show messages that you need to act upon.

Quick Reply

As the name suggested, this feature will let you reply to a message without the need to open a separate compose window, which is perfect for short, snappy responses.

I used the express version but the shareware has more abilities such as the sidebar which gives access to most common functions important in the email service. Thanks for the contest.
