Few news can be seen in the new email clients that seek to make a dent in a category of software quite overloaded.
However, Postbox wants to be present by providing new functionalities that renew the concept of mail manager, basing its operation on content indexing and integration with webmail accounts.
Postbox indexes everything that comes to our mail: text, images, email addresses, links, etc. and presents them arranged in different sections of the program, sections in which we can search, label and organize any indexed element.
Not only can we organize and store this information locally, but we can also save and share each indexed element in different web services: Facebook, Picasa, Twitter, Google Docs, FriendFeed, Delicious, etc.
Another feature that makes Postbox a truly unique email client is its integration with webmail accounts. It is capable of obtaining all kinds of data from our email account, from emails to information related to our contacts, if it exists.
This, together with a conversation view for each email, a very complete edit bar, the ability to turn emails into pending tasks, a really efficient search bar and the ability to install Thunderbird extensions make Postbox an alternative to the clients of popular mail worth downloading.
