What’s New in Version 2?
Unified Inboxes & Account Groups
One of the main complaints in previous versions was the lack of a unified inbox across all your email accounts. Not only Postbox now support unified inboxes, but you can create groups of them. So you can combine your work accounts into one group, and personal accounts into another, and then unify the inboxes for each group.
Not only are the inboxes unified, but so are special folders such as sent, archive, drafts, trash, etc.
This helps to break your inbox into more manageable chunks by allowing users to group messages by common theme, including topics (tags), contacts or dates.
Improved Conversation Views
Postbox Conversation Views are more powerful, actionable, and easy to read. This enables users to quickly bring themselves up to speed, and to jump into discussions with more information, context, and insight.
New To-Do View
Version 2 provides a simple and lightweight way to use email messages to track To-Dos. Easily tag messages as To-Do, create new To-Dos, and combine them into a dedicated To-Do view.
We’ll leave you to decide whether your inbox is the best place to do this – there’s lots of arguments against using your inbox/email program as a task manager, but it might work perfectly for you!
The new version adds several new actions to make message handling faster, including Quick Reply, Quick Move, and Quick Folder Switch, in addition to a ton of new keyboard shortcuts for functions and navigation.
