Dropbox-owned email service Mailbox today opened its Mac beta program to the public, allowing anyone with a Mac to test-run the desktop email client. Mailbox has been around for several years on iOS, but the company launched on OS X earlier this year. The Mac version has been in a closed beta for months with the program open only to users who received beta codes to unlock the demo software.
Mailbox stands out from the crowd with its emphasis on productive management of your email. The app allows you to dismiss messages using a snooze feature that stores the message and recalls it at a later date. The desktop app also syncs with the iOS client using Dropbox as an intermediary allowing the service to store and sync drafts across platforms in an instant.
