Streamlinec communications for the multi-preneur

As a user with multiple projects for multiple enterprises going at the same time, I found myself missing communications or misplacing threads because of the sheer volume.

Postbox has helped me to better navigate the deluge of email communications that I receive, and to filter what is necessary to focus on now and what can be stored away. I appreciate the tagging and image search features especially.

Pros

The ability to combine all of my email inboxes intelligently, with deep search and filtering capabilities that help me to not miss anything from my various projects.

Cons

Would love to be able to extend these functionalities to my iOs devices

Overall good product but with a few annoyances

Overall, my experience has been positive. It would be nice to be able to request a feature and receive a response from Postbox staff as to whether there is any possibility of implementation.

Pros

Postbox is relatively easy to use. The overall interface and design are well-done, which contributes to ease of use. Postbox has powerful search features and searches are rapid, after initial indexing has occurred. The ability to quickly filter by contact name or by other message characteristics is also very nice. Displaying just the names of attachments and being able to quickly review them is a big plus.

Cons

The most annoying feature for me is that selecting a topic for a message will add that topic to the entire message conversation. Often I want to tag different emails in the conversation with a different topic tag but this isn't possible. I've used Postbox for many years, but as my number of saved emails has accumulated, I need to be able to categorize them individually so this "feature" is increasingly leading me to consider other email software options.

Postbox mail client

No issues at all, in fact fixed issues I had with other clients.

Pros

Switched to Proton Mail and used with Thunderbird, emClient, Mailbird, all had issues. Discovered Postbox and worked perfectly with Proton. Not only that but blown away by just how good this client is, best of the best in my opinion.

Cons

Nothing except would like an 'Undo Send' option (delay for say 20 seconds), have submitted as a feature request... pretty pretty please!

Conventional scroll bars - yes, non disabled people can use them without the need for...

I think I have made my point, but other issues... The merging of Postbox v. 7 and Outlook 2019 would provide the ultimate e-mail management application.

Once Postbox Inc. staff extricate their heads from the sand, they could have a much better product.

Pros

I really do like the smart folders, and the ease at which they can be created. Having e-mail addresses from our three domains, two businesses and personal e-mail, makes this a life saver, and something not possible in Oulook 2019.

Cons

As somebody who has cerebral palsy, the scroll bars implemented in v. 7 of Postbox slow me down, and are unnecessary. Suggesting that non-disabled people cannot use conventional scroll bars is insulting, and if I were non-disabled, I would be questioning Postbox Inc's low opinion of me and others like me.

Encryption should be easier to setup, and not to be able to schedule a date and time for specific e-mails to be sent appears to be a glaring omission, as is the inability to insert a signature at the cursor.

The lack of read receipt options is also a major let down, and somewhat surprising.

Affordable, easy to use but needs some improvements

Overall, I really like this e-mail app. Although, it has some cons which I explained above, it is totally worth to money.

Pros

The most important aspect of an e-mail app for me is the ability to create filters and Postbox does a really good job. It allows you to create filters, such as if the e-mail is from this domain or a specific e-mail address, move to this folder and assign this topic etc. They provide student discounts which is a big plus. They also have a lifetime license option and the app is continuously receiving updates.

Cons

The customer support should be improved and should be free. They try to charge you $8 per incident for the support. They are saying they would refund the fee, if your problem is due to a bug, but still it does not make sense to get a support from a paid app with an extra fee.
