Pobox Webmail is beginning a new beta today. Go to beta Webmail
This beta includes several new features, which can be activated under Personal Settings:

  • A preview pane
  • A HTML message composer

You can also use the new icon “Mark Unread” to mark multiple selected messages read or unread.

It is also designed to address some persistent problems that customers have identified with the existing webmail:

  • problems viewing and printing attachments
  • inconsistent drag-and-drop failures
  • Caching problems that indicate that a mailbox is empty, even when it is not.
Some features available in the existing webmail have not yet been implemented (or are partially implemented) in the beta. If these features are important to you, we recommend continuing to use the existing webmail.
  • Mark as Spam is not available
  • Switching between HTML and text views from the message is not available
  • Daily folders are not subscribed automatically
  • Javascript test is not enabled, but the site will not work properly without Javascript
  • Address Book exporting is not available
We hope you will try the new beta Webmail, and let us know how it works for you! If you experience any problems, or have any comments or questions, please contact Customer Support.
