[prMac.com] San Francisco - Postbox(TM), Inc. today is pleased to announce Postbox 1.1.1, an update to its flagship email product that provides enhanced support for Mac OS X applications and technologies. Postbox now integrates with the Mac OS X Address Book and iCal and extends search to work with Spotlight, making the entire workflow more efficient and intuitive. Postbox gives users powerful new ways to find, use, and view email messages and content, organize work life, and simply get stuff done. After being named to the industry-leading TechCrunch50 in September 2008, Postbox has continued developing and adding key features to create a powerful and unique email experience.
"Since we launched Postbox 1.0 in September, we've been extremely focused on optimizing the user's workflow, from within Postbox and across the computing environment," said Sherman Dickman, co-founder of Postbox. "We've listened carefully to our ardent Mac users and in today's release, Postbox seamlessly integrates with the applications and technologies they rely on most to get stuff done."
Full support for Mac OS X Address Book and iCal:
Postbox can now directly read and write contact information to the Address Book, providing Mac users with a common contact repository that can be synced with their iPhone or MobileMe service. Additionally, the iCal calendaring application can now use Postbox to send and receive meeting notifications and updates. These integrations happen behind the scenes, without additional user interface elements getting in the way.
Postbox extends search capabilities to Spotlight:
Postbox provides support for Mac OS X Spotlight technology to search through message bodies and message header information such as subject or sender. Spotlight can even be used to search for messages that contain attachments by file name.
"Mac users have very high standards, and are sensitive to even the smallest changes in their workflow," said Scott MacGregor, co-founder of Postbox. "Postbox's support for the Address Book, iCal, Spotlight, and other applications provides our Mac users with a more powerful combination of communications tools and technologies, while preserving the working styles they've become accustomed to."
Bi-directional image exchange with iPhoto and more:
Postbox can now export images received in email directly into iPhoto, and images within iPhoto can now be emailed using Postbox as the preferred email application. Postbox also enhances support for the Safari Web browser, Dictionary application, and drag-and-drop message creation through the Mac OS X Dock.
Pricing and Availability:
Postbox 1.1.1 for Macintosh is available for immediate download, either for a free 30-day trial or for purchase. Postbox is on sale for $39.95 (USD) with an additional Lifetime Upgrades purchase option for $24.95.
