I must revise my earlier review. I do so reluctantly. As I see it there are several problems that when I gave the Company to help with or issue a refund they issued the refund and closed of the box to communicate with them. The issues? 1) Postbox would wake you in the middle of the night ignoring the DO NOT DISTURB preference. True you could put your Mac to sleep to avoid that but I don't like to do that. 2) Postbox will timeout and not download your new mail unless you can discover how to fix the timeout setting…it is not transparent and the setting often not dependable. 3) Yes you can set a default font and size of the font for your emails. However, only the setting for the font itself stays chosen…not the size. 4) There is also a periodic problem with creating a new mailbox and its actually being created. At times the app will create the mailbox…but then it is not there. 5) As another reviewer stated SpamSieve is not supported, the Developers are aware and are seemingly not interested in fix. 6) Close to the most egregious is the Company is horrible about responding to requests for help. Apparently, the only way to get a response is to pay an 8$ charge per incident. Requesting help through the Bug Reporting/Suggestion Portal is for the most part ignored. 7) What may be the most infuriating and disturbing is that you must turn off the NO CROSS TRACKING preference in Safari to even get into the site to request help, to sign up for the blog etc. That is repellent to me! I have a real issue with any party that tells me that I have to decrease my security protocols to communicate with them. I leave the 2 stars rather than 1 or none because the app has enormous potential. But does the Developer?

"You are offline" - it says. So how would I even try the trial? And there is no concrete solution nor provide the older version that work. Leave it.

Overall, I find Postbox to be reliable and fast. I bought it about 2-3 years ago, used it for a bit, stopped, and then started using it again regularly. I am a big fan of using Gmail via web browser, and have done so for years. However, I have multiple email accounts and I find that keeping multiple windows open tends to bog down my browser. Also, when composing in Gmail on Safari, I notice that extensive editing with copy/paste will, for seemingly no reason whatsoever, start messing with the fonts. Everything looks fine in the compose window, but when I see the actual delivered message, the edited parts are a variety of font sizes, making my carefully constructed email look like a deranged ransom note. Using Postbox keeps my browser light (or lighter... I still have a bunch of other browser tabs open), and my heavily edited emails now look less deranged. However, the two benefits above are not limited to Postbox. I appreciate the following features in Postbox: message threading; flexibility in loading remote images and whitelisting senders; easy-to-use search; ability to view a mailbox by attachments, images, or just flagged messages; support for auto-switching to a Dark theme at night. I haven't used account groupings yet, but that seems like a promising feature. A few features I'd love to see: 1) ability to delete a message within a thread from the message window. Currently, in the message list (aka the "middle pane"), you can see your threads and all of the messages in each thread. To delete a message in the thread, select it, and hit delete. No problem. When I'm reading a particular message in the message view (aka "the right pane"), I would like to be able to right-click that message and delete it, without having to find it in the middle pane. The current behavior is that trying to delete any message from the right pane will delete the entire thread. This is confusing, because you can click individual messages in the right pane, and Postbox will display a border around it. That feels like the message have been given focus. If I press delete, I would expect that I can delete that particular message. I'd be happy to confirm with a dialogue box, if necessary. 2) Auto-switching from Dark mode to Light mode does not work correctly. Postbox will correctly switch its theme to Dark mode in the evening. But when it becomes morning, and my menu bar turns light again, Postbox will remain in its dark theme. Not only that, but the message text turns black, while the app theme remains dark. It's easy enough to fix by quitting and restarting Postbox, but this feels like a bug to me. 3) Support to snooze messages from within Postbox's UI. 4) Ability to pin messages to the top of the message list window. This is a feature in Canary Mail. Something similar in Postbox could be useful. As a workaround, the "flagged" message view also works. 5) support for multiple star icons in Gmail. Not sure if it's possible, but would be super cool, as I use the various star icons (such as: question mark, green checkmark, information, and red / yellow urgency) to help my workflow. I still occasionally dip into the Gmail web interface for the occasional gnarly search (or to view the various colored flags on individual messages), but overall, Postbox is now part of my regular workflow on desktop.

I started using Postbox a month ago, transitioning away from the old Windows Live Mail. So far I have been very impressed! And as I was importing my old emails I needed to use their support service (which costs $8 per incident), and I got VERY GOOD response from them through several email exchanges which answered my questions and taught me even more about the software. (I've had a PC in my life ever since 1984, so I am a seasoned user.)

Each update seems more and more buggy but worst of all, there is zero customer support. My last two attempts at contacting Postbox were completely ignored. I did not know they charge for technical support now - that explains why they don't bother to respond unless you pay up!

At Postbox, all "Support Requests" are quickly answered by some of the very best support people in the business. To maintain the highest standards possible (as your time and email data are important), we do charge a small support fee. However, if the issue is a bug or a problem with our documentation, then your support fee will be promptly refunded. Please note that "Bug Reports" are a one-way notification channel to the development staff, and while we appreciate each submission, we do not respond to the comments you submit. If you require personalized assistance, then we encourage you to file a support request with our Professional Services team.

Paid a lifetime subscription for Postbox years ago and stopped using it after a year. The company refuses to be innovative and add features that other competing mail apps incorporate. First of all, they removed support for SpamSieve, the best spam filtering software available for Mac. Next, they refuse to incorporate avatars in the list of incoming messages so one can immediately recognize the sender of an email by photo. Though the support team has indicated that this could slow down email downloads, they should have at least made this optional for users that want the feature. I am sorry I paid a lifetime license for software I got rid of within a year. You shouldn't be claiming that you are improving your mail client when you take away loved features or refuse to add others.

We're sorry you feel this way about the app. Some comments... 1) We've released almost 50 updates over the past two years that have contained a number of innovations, and many of our competitors have yet to catch up with the unique features that Postbox has. At the end of the day, use the app you like best. 2) We would love SpamSieve support, but the developer of SpamSieve has yet to create a version that will operate in Postbox. Please note that we do not develop SpamSieve nor do we have access to their code. 3) We do not currently support avatars in the message list, but we will certainly consider this for a future release. Thanks!

Thus far, I have had excellent experiences with PostBox 7.x and their Customer Support. I transitioned everything with ease and all my concerns were settled during the Trial period. It was a leap to cut the cord with both Apple Mail and MS Outlook, but so far: No buyers' remorse at all. I just wish I had purchased PostBox sooner and saved myself a lot of frustration over the years. They frequently update and address customers/members concerns. My experience? Work with them and they will work with you.

Trying Postbox now. Yesterday I was not able to get it to work: account creation was always failing for any account, but today it succeeded on the first try. Who knows... Certainly a problem on my Mac... Anyway Postbox seems very promising and thanks to the trial period I am now testing it in real life... If anything is ok I could pay for it.

Really needs a mobile iOS app to make it perfect, but meets my complex e-mail needs pretty well.
