Postbox 2.5 - New Addressing Widget

Posted in: Features

The next release of Postbox, version 2.5, is scheduled to release this Summer. But don't let the dot-version number fool you... some major work is being done to make Postbox faster, simpler, and more intuitive than ever before. Best of all, Postbox 2.5 will be a free update for all Postbox 2 users!

Over the next few weeks we'll be providing sneak peeks on what's new and cool about Postbox 2.5.

To kick things off, we're excited to announce that we've completely rewritten the addressing widget to allow for individual addressing fields:

Postbox 2.5 Addressing Widget

Once an address auto-completes, it turns into a contact bubble that can be reordered, moved to another addressing field, or right-clicked to bring up a contextual menu of options. When addressing to a group/list, the addressing field will expand to display all participants, wrapping contact bubbles to the next row if needed.

To and Cc fields will display by default, but the compose window can be adjusted to show or hide Cc, Bcc, Reply-To, etc.

We've found the new addressing widget to be a lot more usable, and it's tremendously convenient to see more contacts at one time. We can't wait to start work on re-styling and finishing touches.

Stay tuned to learn more about Postbox 2.5 in the next post!
