I've been using Postbox for many years now. I spent quite a long time recently exploring other email programs, in case there was something better out there. But I rushed right back to Postbox. The features I value most: • canned responses (can't live without 'em) • very clean interface, and highly customizable • excellent search • fast And excellent tech support. There's a ton of online support on the site. And I just bit the bullet today to buy tech support ($8 - the cost of a couple of cappuccinos). I'll never hesitate again. The support was incredible, honestly. It's tough to get good support for email problems, and what I got today was way beyond anything you can ever get for email issues -- my support person hung in there for about an hour till everything was solved, and went way beyond the call of duty, exploring solutions outside of Postbox as well as exhausting the possibilities within the program. I've worked with a ton of other email clients since the 1990s (Netscape, Thunderbird, Apple Mail), and Postbox is the best client around, in my humble opinion.

The best, most powerful mail app on the Mac I have used; maybe more than many people need, but for professional work and multiple accounts, you cannot beat it. The only thing that keeps me from giving it the fifth star is that smart quotes are not supported in its text editor. Come on, Postbox! Which century are we in?

Just sent for my one year licence. Am very happy with Postbox. Have never paid for a mail programme before but this is worth it.

I'm always looking out for email clients that are better than my good ol' Postbox. I've tried them, but remained with Postbox like a husband who knows the qualities of his wife and accepts her flaws. I want privacy, so I love that Postbox blocks all remote images by default and I can determine which senders earn my trust. Love the responses I can set up and activate with a click, including variables such as sender's name. That saves me a lot of time. I use two accounts with different signatures and it works well. Recently I set up filters to have all notifications in one folder - easy! Saves me more time as I can now bulk-process them. Archiving emails is fast too thanks to the "v" keyboard command. Then just start typing the folder name and hit enter - done. In other clients I'd have to click through the folder tree. I can feel that the dev team pays attention to details and knows what us users want and value. No other email client has convinced me yet to break up. Is it all perfect? Of course not. One feature I miss is when I process my newsletters and click on links. I'd love an option that allows to "Open link in background" so I can process the newsletters first and links later. Great efficiency potential. Recently I submitted my first bug report. I was impressed by the speed and level of inquiry of the support team. Together we found the cause and it was fixed within days. That's what I want as a user. Well done, Postbox team!

The app is functionality is acceptable. The support is nonexistent (upsetting, pathetic, a joke...) - the only way to get to the support pages are trough a zendesk which needs you to use ONLY internet explorer to login. If you go to their support pages you get in a circle going nowhere and then back - to nowhere!

Just started using Postbox. Must say I am impressed. Its very clean interface is easy to use. I havn't been tempted to go back to Thunderbird which I have been using for years.

It's excellent overall. BUT there are a few glaring holes that are annoying/puzzling. First, while they have keystroke commands for common functions (great for power users), Postbox does not support OSX keyboard shortcuts. This means you are forced to learn their keyboard shortcuts as opposed to mapping them to what you might otherwise be used to (eg Apple Mail). It is strange at best that they don't allow keyboard re-mapping and it detracts from productivity.

I have tested a significant number of email apps over the last few months, ad I actually have to agree with your statement that PostBox is probably the best email application for Mac. The only thing holding me back from full scale adoption is the lack of an accompanying iOS app, which prevents me from fully utilising the fantastic Apple eco-system between my different devices. Do you have any plans for creating or releasing an iOS app on the near future?

Unequivocally the best email client I have ever used. The most powerful feature for me is the ability to tag emails on the fly. Why other email clients don't do this (or do it very poorly) I really do not know. In the way this is implemented in Postbox, you can put multiple tags on an email allowing you to control quite complex conversations. However, one star off for not having Microsoft Authenticator - which I think is becoming more prevalent in corporate environments - and so for work email, Postbox cannot be used - pity, because in my view it is better than Outlook (although Outlook does has some great integrations).

I have been using Postbox for about 4 years, and while there is a lot to like about it, there are some things that make me want to go back to Mac Mail or find another alternative. While some feel the fee for support is reasonable at $8 per incident, I personally am not a fan. I paid for a lifetime license, and free support was included in that purchase. So to now have to pay for support just doesn't sit well with me. If you are changing your support structure perhaps consider grandfathering legacy owners into the free support and have a new pricing structure for new purchasers. Beyond that issue, I find the search function is inconsistent, and despite my emails all being indexed I sometimes am unable to find what I need, but a quick switch over to gmail and doing the same search and presto the email is found. I also prefer email clients where you can easily follow threads and see when. you replied or forwarded messages. Postbox at times shows you all this in thread view but it isn't as clean in appearance as I would like it, and if you then view the individual messages you can't see the replies and the little arrow that indicates there is some other action on the message does not actually link to that reply or forward. A good app, and fairly reliable, but again the paid support is a problem for me.

I want to love this app (the mail rules are fantastic), but until they fix the importing of emails from Apple Mail (I have thousands archived in iCloud), then I can't use it. But if you're starting from scratch, this is a very good alternative to Apple Mail.
