Purchasing Postbox

What is the licensing model for Postbox?

Postbox versions 7 and above are sold under an annual licensing model.

Are the licenses per user or per machine?

Postbox licenses are per user, so one license will cover any/all machine(s) you personally use, Mac or PC. If more than one person will be using Postbox, then additional copies can be purchased at a discount at our Store.

How do I upgrade to Postbox 7?

If you purchased Postbox between March 1st, 2016 and September 3rd, 2019, or if you purchased the Lifetime Upgrade option before July 31st, 2010, then you already have a Postbox Lifetime key and no additional purchase is necessary. Download and install the current version of Postbox, and you're good to go.

If you do not have a Lifetime purchase, then a new purchase is required to use the newest version of Postbox.

How do I know what version I previously purchased?

If you purchased Postbox between March 1st, 2016 and September 3rd, 2019, or if you purchased the Lifetime Upgrade option before July 31st, 2010, then you already have a Postbox Lifetime key and no additional purchase is necessary. Download and install the current version of Postbox, and you're good to go.

If you do not have a Lifetime purchase, then a new purchase is required to use the newest version of Postbox.

There are two ways to check if you have a Lifetime License:

1) Within Postbox 5 or Postbox 6, go to the Help menu and select "License..." If you see the following panel with the string "This copy of Postbox is licensed to...", then you have a Lifetime License:
