Postbox has released version 3.0.10 of its eponymous email client, with support for Retina displays. The update also automatically resizes images to fit the message pane window, adds the capability to whitelist an entire domain to load remote images, fixes a slowdown issue with Yahoo IMAP servers, fixes an issue that prevented some preferences from being saved, stops Address Book notes from overflowing, and improves French, Italian, and German localizations. ($9.95 new, free update, 22.9 MB, release notes, 10.6+)
Go Back and Forth Fast in Preview
If you're reading a PDF in Apple's Preview software, and you follow a bookmark or an internal link to move around within the PDF, you can quickly return to where you were by pressing the keyboard shortcut Command-[ (that's Command-Left Bracket). Or, you can choose Go > Back.
The command works iteratively, so you can go back to just the previously viewed page or if you issue the command again, to the page before that, and so on. There's also an equivalent Go > Forward (Command-]).

Postbox looks promising, maybe even very promising, but for one glaring detail: no iOS support. Am I missing something?
I've been forwarding my (too many) email addresses to a gmail catchall, then filtering these by content, subject, addressee, etc., into various tags for gmail, Mailplane, and gmail's iOS app.
I'd used Eudora since the late '80s (until Rosetta died) as an historic database. It was terrific. Licenses, invoices, negotiations, etc., were easily stored and found. AND annotated.
I could also send mail from any of my email addresses without going through all the crap gmail forces me to do.
I followed Adam's path to gmail, but for reasons above, and the terribly slow appearance of POPped mail, I gotta go.
But without an iOS version, I might not be able to use Postbox.
Any thoughts from those who might know?
Why not point Postbox at Gmail from the Mac, and use the Gmail app on iOS?
I know I've got to move to IMAP. Promise, I will. I'm a slow adopter; mistrust of clouds, etc. Burned several times by mobile me.
But POP is not the only source of my problems with gmail.
If I were to switch to Postbox, I'd cut the cord with gmail and use IMAP directly with my mail server and suffer with webmail on the iOS devices.
I know, I know. I want everything my way. Sorry.
