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+)
Extract Directly from Time Machine
Normally you use Time Machine to restore lost data in a file like this: within the Time Machine interface, you go back to the time the file was not yet messed up, and you restore it to replace the file you have now.
You can also elect to keep both, but the restored file takes the name and place of the current one. So, if you have made changes since the backup took place that you would like to keep, they are lost, or you have to mess around a bit to merge changes, rename files, and trash the unwanted one.
As an alternative, you can browse the Time Machine backup volume directly in the Finder like any normal disk, navigate through the chronological backup hierarchy, and find the file which contains the lost content.
Once you've found it, you can open it and the current version of the file side-by-side, and copy information from Time Machine's version of the file into the current one, without losing any content you put in it since the backup was made.
Put your company and products in front of tens of thousands of
savvy, committed Apple users who actually buy stuff.

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.
