Postbox 2.1 Now Available with New Summarize Mode

December 8, 2010

We’re really excited to announce the immediate availability of Postbox 2.1. This release contains new features, usability enhancements, and bug fixes, but let’s dive right into what’s cool…

New “Summarize Mode” for Message Replies and Forwards

Postbox’s Conversation View simplifies message viewing, and now, “Summarize Mode” extends these benefits to message Replies and Forwards. Summarize provides a clean and beautifully formatted who-said-what-when email that lets message recipients jump into discussions with more clarity, context and insight.

When you Reply or Forward a message, you’ll be presented with a toolbar button that toggles between two states: Quote and Summarize. Clicking on Quote will format the message with conventional indented quoting. Click on Summarize and Postbox will quote the entire conversation in a simple and easy to read format, as illustrated below:
