Postbox has released version 3.0.8 of its eponymous email client, using the integrated graphics processor exclusively on MacBook Pro models that have dual GPUs in order to reduce power usage and thus save some battery life. The update also adds a Run Filters on Folder toolbar button, ensures that Notification Center alerts link directly to messages, displays the account name next to the folder name in the message pane, and adds automatic account configuration support for iCloud email accounts. Plus, it fixes an issue with Growl integration, a crash when indexing, and a crash when importing from Thunderbird. ($9.95 new, free update, 21.5 MB, release notes)
