I agree with James. On the Mac, where Time Machine does my backups, this is a big issue. These per year mailboxes quickly get HUGE. This is a feature which is already part of the Thunderbird base code and it would seem straightforward to port the core logic. In talking with customer support, they said this feature is not on the roadmap as it runs counter to the direction they want to move the product.

For my part, if this feature were on board and some of my favorite plugins were supported (or their functionality supported natively), I’d probably jump in and buy postbox, but for now, I’m going to stick to Thunderbird.

This is what I experienced with POSTBOX. Almost immediately after installing and using it I had space problems. Since almost all of my email accounts were defined as IMAP, I was at a loss as to why I was always “out of space”.

I bet this software was making hidden backups.


I’m gonna eventually have to wipe and upgrade to Lion.

WINDOZE has the same problems that require a clean reinstall to restart with a clean slate. This was the exact problem that I was hoping to avoid with the MACBOOKAIR.

Clearly there’s still much improvement need in computing appliances needed.

GUNS: ATF bans scrub-pad stockpiles

Feds warns kitchen staple considered part of ‘silencer’

“Put down the Chore Boy and back away from the weaponry!”

It’s an order that actually could be heard, given that a letter has surfaced from the federal government warning against consumers stockpiling Chore Boy household scrubbers because they can be considered a component of a gun silencer and, therefore, regulated by federal gun laws.

The letter is from the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the ATF. It was obtained by David Codrea, who publishes online as the Gun Rights Examiner.

You can’t make this stuff up.

The BATF, the home of “Fast and Furious”, needs to be shut down.

The “law” can’t prevent anything.
