Using Postbox with Things


Using Postbox with Things

To Setup Postbox to use Things, please follow these instructions in this order:

Pay careful attention to approve the permissions dialogs that macOS displays when using Postbox with Things. Note also that you may have to restart both apps once or twice to reset macOS permissions!

A new Things to-do can be created in one of two ways:

  1. By selecting the message list and using the shortcut: control + option + space
  2. By selecting some text in the message body and using the contextual menu

Using Quick Post with Things

Things also supports a Mail to Things feature that can be used in conjunction with Quick Post.


If Postbox cannot connect to Things, please check the permissions in macOS System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Privacy > Automation and make sure under that Things is selected.
