Here comes an update of Postler with a focus on solving problems and small productivity enhancements. DockManager API is now supported, so Docky and the latest AWN show a badge for unread mail.
You can also use Blind Copy when composing messages now. And you can specify which port should be used for sending, including secure SMTP support via port 465. Otherwise STARTTLS is used.
Keyboard users rejoice, there is actually an overview of keyboard shortcuts now. Including Alt+Up/ Down to jump to the next or previous unread message.
And you can delete messages from saved searches, which means a lot if you use them in place of inboxes such as “work” or “bugs”. For further changes see the change log.
So [http://archive.xfce.org/src/apps/postler/0.1/postler-0.1.1.tar.bz2#!sha1!f5c73c0219844d4092860eb4d8aa36223027b298 download Postler v0.1.1] (245 kB) now and have some fun reading mail, not setting it up.
For Ubuntu and derivatives, there are two PPA’s available, ppa:postler-dev/ppa and ppa:postler-dev/devel for stable and daily builds respectively.
An icon theme such as Elementary, Faenza or Buuf is recommended, at least as a fallback. And [https://launchpad.net/dexter-rolodex addess book Dexter] for contact auto completion.
