Postbox is an interesting commercial email client and Usenet newsreader based on the email technology that underlies Thunderbird. However, it adds a refined user interface and provides advanced message analysis and cataloging functions that make it easier to search and retrieve information on demand. It also includes some social networking features, such as direct integration with Twitter, FriendFeed, Facebook, and Flickr.
Version 1.1.2 introduces the following enhancements over the previous release (1.1.1):

Also, if you have an older Mac, be sure to check out the "Classic" applications page for more options.
Finally, take a look at ALEMIA if you think you know that name of an application, but aren't quite sure.
Andrew Starr has another marvelous page about Usenet newsreaders that you simply must check out.
There are several Usenet newsgroups dedicated to Macintosh-specific topics. Here are the most essential ones:
comp.sys.mac.announce is a moderated newsgroup that contains important general announcements to the Macintosh community.
comp.sys.mac.apps is the place to go when you have questions about specific Macintosh programs.
comp.sys.mac.comm is the place to discuss all things involving Macintosh telecommunications and Macs on the Internet.
comp.sys.mac.printing is for all printer- and printing-related discussion.
comp.sys.mac.hardware.misc is for discussion of all other Macintosh hardware-related questions.
comp.sys.mac.system is the place to go for MacOS-related discussions.
comp.sys.mac.misc is the place to post when other Macintosh-related newsgroups don't fit the bill.
Note: If you'd like to search the Usenet for Macintosh-related information, you really only have one option (but it's a good one): Google purchased the old DejaNews (Deja.com) Usenet archive, and now offers sophisticated searching of all mainstream Usenet newsgroups, both past and present.
These are applications that are newer and of potential interest, but which I haven't yet selected for permanent inclusion. Have a look, and let me know if you think they deserve to be part of the permanent collection!
