One of the great things about Postbox is the ability to customize the interface to meet your needs. You can take control of the Postbox toolbar and decide to show or hide buttons that you may or may not use everyday. Toolbars of main Postbox window, compose window, and address book window can all be customized.
It's a great idea to explore what buttons are available, since you may find tools that greatly improve your workflow. Here's how:
Adding/Removing Buttons from the Toolbar
Adding and removing buttons on the toolbar is as easy as drag and drop. In order to see the available buttons, go to View | Customize Toolbar... or simply right-click on the toolbar itself. In the window that appears, simply drag any button into the desired location in the toolbar. To remove a button, just drag it down into the window. Spaces and Flexible Spaces and Separators are available to assist in organization.
Change Size and Color of Toolbar Buttons
You will find options at the bottom of the Customize Toolbar window which allows for further configuration. You can configure the toolbar to show Icons, Text, or Both, and opt to use small icons for a more minimal interface. If you ever want to return to the default configuration, just click the Restore Default Set button.
If you're using a Mac, you can choose between color or monochrome toolbar buttons as well. In the Size drop-down menu, there are options for normal "Icons" or "Monochrome Icons", and they can both be displayed with and without text.
