A good replacement for Apple Mail. Faster, more features without needing to install plug-ins.

Globally a very good emailer for mac. The only which can be compared to the late Eudora. The global interface is friendly. However, bug fixing is deficient. Filters do not apply consecutively. Thousand of messages sometimes get duplicated, a real pain.

Can't connect to my Synology Diskstation. The error from the wizard messages not helpful. Why can't I just manually set up the account without the useless wizard?

I used to love Postbox, but since getting a new Macbook Pro with the Apple silicon the app crashes ALOT. C'mon guys! Get an update out there to address this issue or it'll soon be time to look for another email app.

i really like postbox, but I hate that they don't have a native arm-version for the m1-macs. Because of that the whole app is really slow on the m1-macs, which shouldn't be the case. I really hope that they release a native m1-version in the nearest future.

I simply love Postbox. It's got most of the things I need and, by avoiding the temptation to do everything what it does it does it very well. The interface is clean and intuitive but behind it is a serious multithreaded message processing system which is designed for the task. I know there are jazzier email clients out there but at the end I always come back to Postbox.

I love Postbox but is is so frustrating that the company haven't released an Apple Silicon version which will run natively on pretty much the whole new range of Apple computers. Thunderbird, on which Postbox is based, has been available in an Apple Silicon version for some time. All Postbox will say to me is that they never comment of future developments. To those who say 'doesn't it run under emulation mode then?' the answer is 'yes' but it uses more memory than Photoshop and the argument that it runs OK so that's all that matters doesn't wash. It's like a company releasing just a Windows version of an app and telling its Mac customers 'No problem, it will run under Wine'. Would you be happy with that?. It has been a year since Apple announced its ARM intentions and made available to developers a Mac Mini containing Apple Silicon. Surely enough time when all other developers have managed to transition and release Universal versions for macOS.

The reason for switching to PostBox was that Apple's email app doesn't let me choose when a message will be marked as "read". Since then, I've ben using PostBox on all my Mac's since V4 and I love it. I maintain several e-mail accounts for both of my companies and everything works like a breeze. And the Search function is superb and allows me to find archived messages quickly, very essential for dealing with customer-support e-mails. I upgraded very quickly to lifetime license.

I have just come to the end of my 4-week trial and have decided to switch my mail client. Its better than MacMail and I think Outlook (my current email client) is travelling in the wrong direction. Correctly configuring a complex Exchange-Server account took a little effort but now its functioning very well. I find Postbox very easy to use. It has a lot of very useful features although I still have some way to go before calling myself a power user - I particularly like the search features. And its excellent value for money ... So why only 4 stars? Well there is always room for improvement so almost nobody gets 5 stars. Moving conversations out of inbox/sent mail to another mailbox (rather than archive) could be easier. As a trivial niggle, changing tag colours is needlessly difficult as it is unclear which colour is currently in use.

Buggy. "Add to calendar" date detection doesn't work, all the normal Mac text substitutions/manipulations are inactive (ignores ctrl-T, my substitutions in Keyboard prefs pane, etc.). Bought the app on sale, based on high ratings. Regretting it now as I often fall back to the MacOS Mail app just to get basics done.

Out of nowhere, it stopped accepting passwords on every one of my mail accounts. Every one of them. All at once. Changing and replacing the PWs didn't matter. It refuses to acknowledge my passwords on all my accounts. I went to their pathetic "Contact Us" page, wrote out what is going on, and then THEY WANTED TO CHARGE $8 JUST TO WRITE TO THEM. That is just outrageous. I already paid $39 for this app, it stopped working for no known reason, and I have to give them more money just to ask them about it? Forget it. They have made an opponent of me.

Postbox is a decent email client probably worth more stars for the features, but their support is horrific and their updates frequently break things, so be prepared to downgrade while they get their act together. That's what brings me here today because I am tired of the inconvenience they cause. My advice is to set the updates to manual. Keep a previous version handy or rely on Time Machine (macOS) for when you do decide to take the update plunge (crapshoot!) because they do not make it simple to locate a previous functional version.

I loved it so much for 1 month, it's killing me to do this, but hundreds of reviews, NO ONE warns about some things that are so commonly needed they are common that one or two features would be "missing" from an app - and clearly every app can work for many - and NOT work for many folks. I do not need my email software to do my dishes, mop my floors, calendar my life (I use the best one - yes integration please, but don't invent your own) Postbox is great how it connects with the "outside world" of Apps - but the following is something I guess you might take for granted in 2021. Again, be prepared have NONE of the following: - A mobile version of Postbox - or worse - anything that plays nice with Postbox. - No "snooze", nothing like it, no workaround, if you ever, in your email life, used either "snooze", "Boomerang", or "Remind me later" features and need them - just stop right now, it's not there, and I assure you, they made it very clear - it's not coming any time either in the future. - You will have ONE and ONLY ONE "workstation" with your master inbox on I guess the "main computer of your choosing". There is no cloud support (yes, read that again slowly) for moving around mobile, or even laptop vs your desktop. You can attempt their very unsupported, though well explained, way to use a cloud service, but let me save you a week, it won't work. Dropbox, iCloud, Box. Won't work. and they state it clearly and respectfully to their customers - they accept no responsibility for things out of their control. I admire them for saying it. - They keep bragging about some feature called "Focus" so I spent a few full hours learning/reading (remember please I was in love with this, so I was committed) - but while I admit there must be a way to make it work - it is so counter-intuitive, don't have a heart attack if you create all these labels and keywords, then you click them, which seems normal - to expect everything "unread" to just pop out (I have 32 emails for 6 companies) - then everything just disappears - although it was safe somewhere. Eats up enormous screen real estate. - While their customer support may be the best I ever experienced - it's $8 a question/issue. I paid 3 times, and they were great, but now it's all wasted money The pros they do BETTER than any of SIX other apps I have switching around from in a year. I'd love to tell you where I ended up - but it's not perfect either, and it would make this review seem suspicious. +++ MAGIC IMPORTER - just type an email address and IT KNOWS everything about the settings, in a way that seems magical, ports, DNS info, IMAP or POP, Security - like my own full IT department. This was why I bought it too fast. + unlimited number of email addresses from all types IMAP, POP... I HAVE 30+ emails from OVER 15 years. It "found" them ALL and IMPORTED every one, including AOL addresses long lost in the 20th century. "You've Got Mail" indeed, yea, I did, it was still there. + nest and organize related email addresses inside smart folder groupings + The best support FAQ guide and documentation I have ever seen. It is so good I read every line of it. and did it. Yet, the "Focus" and some other stuff simply did not work for me. + They are the only client software people so honest, they go into detail about IMAP and POP guidance you must consider for the future, not only how to keep doing what you are doing now. Their honesty was worth the price of the software alone. Love POP? get over it, it's not really long for this world. Thank you Postbox for BOTH letting me use POP, yet educating about all aspects of storage, DNS, 12 different types of email sources and HOW TO DO THEM ALL - amazing.

I've use Postbox since version 2. It took a few updates and I converted my license to a Lifetime member. I use the app every day for business and home. The company updates the software on a regular basis and adds new features. I find it fast and convenient to process email with the keyboard shortcuts. It is missing a few modern features like email Snooze, but I'm hopeful these will be implemented in the near future. It is a full featured email client for a reasonable price.

I've been using postbox for a number of years now. I've tried other mail apps, such as Airmail and Canary Mail. But I find that those apps are better on iOS than in MacOs. I recently had to do a system reinstall and I thought I'd try something else, but it didn't last long. The ease of use and the customization of postbox keeps me locked in. So, in short, it's the best 3rd party email app out there for MacOS.

Like Postbox a lot. I manage 8 email accounts and like the flow of this tool. Would love to edit my emails via Grammarly in context. A plugin?
