Pro Clear interface
Pro Forgotten attachment reminders by default
Reminding the user that they forgot to attach the file if they mentioned one in the body of the email is one of the most useful features of any email client and so many don't include this. Postbox is pre-configured to look for certain keywords (attached, CV, spreadsheet, pdf etc) and you can specify your own keywords in addition.
Pro Blocks tracking gifs
Has the ability to block tracking gifs commonly used for read receipts.
Pro One Inbox for all accounts
All messages in one place. But you can select to show only messages from each account either.
Pro Quick Bar for macros
Quick bar allows you to add a variety of content to your message. It will let you reuse URLS in your Sent folder, and autocompletes against canned responses, signatures, and topics.
Pro Free and paid version
Users who only need to use the basic features of the app have a free version available, though it does limit to only 3 sync'd accounts. There is a paid version that does extend functionality and allows for unlimited account but it does cost $1.00 a month or $45.00 as a one time fee.
Pro You can have multiple accounts
In Pro version, you can create an unlimited number of accounts.
Con No support forum
Support for paid product has no online forums.
Con Drag & drop is impossible
Drag & dropping folders and emails between accounts are not possible.
Con Poor import/export of contacts
You can only import your contacts data via CSV, which isn't the most popular choice. Much more convenient ways to do so exist. Even the older Windows Life Mail program is more flexible when it comes to contacts and offers such features as duplicate checks.
Con Collects user data
Mailbird does collect some user data such as user email addresses, names and client use. So for those that are security minded the use collection of this information may not be wanted and can not be avoided.
