Postbox is an email client that originated in Mozilla’s Thunderbird. The developers have plenty of options and improvements to it added and it is possible to use the functionality with extensions to expand further. It should be noted, however, that the add-ons for Thunderbird cannot be used without modifications. Postbox supports pop3, imap, and smtp on both Mac OS X and Windows; a Linux variant is still being considered. The developers released version 1.1.5 a few days ago with the following announcement and list of changes:
