PostBox Express/Premium Mail Client for Mac PowerPC

PostBox Express/Premium Mail Client for Mac Powerpc

Ok here is the thing, a long time ago I was searching for a good mail client for my Mac PowerPC, but all my research could turn up was Thunderbird and Mail being my best option!  Everybody knows that Thunderbird dropped the support for Mac PowerPC and right now they are operating at version 12.0.1 leaving us behind at 3.1.20.  But well, what to do, this is life and we’ve known the feeling for a long time now, so it’s time to move on with the available options!

Recently the project TenFourFox decided to release TenFourBird 10.0.4 which is the equivalent to the newest version of Thunderbird and runs on Mac G3/G4/G5.  This news made the majority of the PowerPC users really happy because we finally would be able to have a good mail client.  Anyways, a few weeks ago it happened that I found this app called PostBox Express 1.0.1 that runs on PowerPC 10.4/10.5.  It’s an amazing app: simple and powerful, and works with most e-mail accounts including even “Hotmail” accounts.  It’s too bad that the pay version 3.0.3 is for intel only, otherwise it would be perfect because it has more features than the express version.  I need to point out that the free version is based on the same platform as the premium version, but clearly with less features, making it a good option for home users.  We can not run 3.0.3 but Leopard users running 10.5 I have good news, you will be able to install the Premium/First Class 2.1.5 (trial version – 30 days).  I don’t know how much it will cost to get this version but if you try and would like to share information with the rest of us in the comments section, we’d much appreciate it!
