Not too many of the Geek Software of the Weeks are a “paid for” product, but this one is. I needed a simple, clean, very cool email client. I had been using Thunderbird, but there were some things I didn’t like about it, and they have stopped development on it. So, I found Mailbox! It is only $10.00. And, it is nice, simple, and clean!
Postbox Email Client for IMAP, POP3, etc.
“Be focused, be organized, be awesome
Powerful, intuitive, and faster than a scalded monkey, the Postbox email client will help you stay on task, find information quickly and act, not react.
Conversation views give you the ‘big picture’
Postbox’s Conversation Views are powerful, actionable, and easy to use.
It works by gathering conversation fragments from multiple folders and presenting them in a unified view.
So the rumors are true, Postbox will actually make you smarter.
