Similar to add-ons, our Labs feature will allow for experimental 3rd-party code to be used within Postbox.
Unlike add-ons that can be arbitrarily installed, only a select number of Labs projects will be available for Postbox. Given that Labs projects contain 3rd-party experimental code, they are not officially supported by Postbox, Inc.
If there's a 3rd-party solution you would like to see in Postbox, contact the 3rd-party developer directly. Please do not contact Postbox asking us to support code we do not develop, thanks! 👍
The first Labs project will be OpenPGP support provided by a specially designed version of Enigmail for Postbox. Also available are Labs projects for Import / Export Tools and Antidote. Please see our Labs page for a list of available Labs projects.
To install a Labs Project:
- Download the file to your computer, such as the Desktop.
- In Postbox, go to the Tools menu and select Labs.
- Click the preferences icon in the upper right corner, then select Install Labs Project From File...
- Browse to the location of the Labs project and select it.
- Restart Postbox.
