Postbox Ready for OS X Lion

We’ve been busy preparing Postbox for the OS X Lion release, and today, we’re pleased to announce the immediate availability of Postbox 2.5.1 for both Mac and Windows.

Improved Conversation View

In Postbox 2.5 we redesigned the message view, and 2.5.1 builds upon these enhancements with greater visual separation between messages, larger profile pictures, and improved keyboard control.

To navigate through the Postbox interface, simply use the Tab key and then Option-Arrow on the Mac, or Alt-Arrow on Windows, to page through messages. Powering through your email has never been easier!

OS X Lion Styling

Postbox ships with a beautiful icon set with vibrant colors, and now, Postbox on the Mac also sports a monochrome set with Lion-style sidebar icons. Interestingly, Lion’s style requires two sets to be created for default and selected states. We’re thrilled with the quality and elegance of these new icons, as Postbox now fits perfectly with Lion’s new interface.


Of course, it wouldn’t be a Postbox release without a bunch of usability and reliability enhancements. For the full set of changes, please see the Postbox 2.5.1 Release Notes.

Postbox 2.5.1 is a free update for all Postbox 2 customers on Mac and Windows, and can be downloaded today from the Postbox website. For our Mac users, Postbox 2.5.1 will be available in the Mac App Store very soon!
