Postbox, Inc. has released version 2 of its Postbox email software, which gives the open-source Thunderbird email code base a new interface and advanced features. Postbox 2 enables you to create account groups, which are multiple unified inboxes containing just the accounts you specify. Also new is what Postbox calls Conversation View, which will look familiar to Gmail users; it provides additional context by grouping all the messages in a given thread. The new Quick Reply feature lets you compose a response without leaving the message you already have open - you can dash off a terse reply inline as you're reading a message. Postbox 2 is free to try for 30 days, and family pack licenses are available. Postbox, Inc. also makes the free Postbox Express, which lacks some the features in its big brother, but which gives you an unlimited taste of Postbox's basics. ($39.95 new, $19.95 upgrade, 12.0 MB)

The Recent Items submenu in the Apple menu is handy, but what if you want to work with a file in there in the Finder, rather than open it? Just press Command when that menu is showing, and all the Applications and Documents change to "Show ... in Finder." This feature is new as of Mac OS X 10.6.3 Snow Leopard.

Sometimes, for the fun of it, I feel like it might be nice to try a different client.
So my question for Postbox users is, "Why?" What is the benefit of spending money on Postbox when Apple Mail works well and is free? Is search better maybe?
I have about 7 GB of email going back more than a decade. Does it work better for large amounts of email?
And what about Time Machine support?
