nice work as usual :)

Stunning work, however, not a fan of the send icon at all. LOVE that the footer doesn't have a toolbar and is rounded. Kudos if you make the text fade out ala Twitter.app
Nice! Perhaps the to/subject fields could use some top/bottom padding though? The token field feels cramped in there.
Very nice, well done!
Clean and simple, what else does there need to be? #Win
Love it but the difference in aliasing for the glyphs kinda throws me off... hope I make sense, kinda tired right now.
Looks awesome, Ben. Very clean. I think the window corners are too rounded by just the one pixel though.
The glyphs are interesting. Have you thought about making them bigger? They may look a bit heavy, I don't know as it's something I'd have to see :)
Love the overall feel but the Mail-account-gradient needs little less white border at the Bottom. Jus sayin
So far it looks awesome. Very clean and simple. The only thing it that the airplane icon looks weird to me, for a reason that I can't explain. Overall awesome job.
Hoping the "reply all" double-arrows switches to "reply" after being clicked, to toggle.
Not a fan of hiding the resize lines in the bottom right corner, but this might be a personal thing.
Also would be cool if the height of the window expanded as you typed more email.
I like the style. That aside, I think the icons should be labelled for better usability, and as @Luke pointed in the previous comment, resize lines should also be visible. Assuming users would figure that out would be quite presumptuous :)
Stunning! Might actually make me ditch Sparrow and Mailplane!! :D
Question: have you considered placing the traffic light icons inline a la AppStore.app? :)
@Sam Feyaerts: The titlebar controls ("traffic lights") are smaller because Benjamin is using the ones from Lion, which are smaller than the titlebar controls from Leopard and Snow Leopard.
I commented on the other shot you posted about the usage of glyphs. I still feel like they don't quite look like they reflect their functions enough, or it doesn't look like they'd be completely satisfying to click and have their respective action performed.
For example, I feel like I wouldn't want to press that little send glyph to send an email, because sending an email is like a big, permanent action. The way it is now, in a group of glyphs that are the same size, I feel like I have to do too much mental work to tell them apart. It also feels like the send button is such a small target I might accidentally click the forward button next to it and screw things up. I'm not sure what the solution is; I'm still figuring out in my own designs what balance to have between buttons with glyphs, buttons with text, and glyphs on their own.
It is a very sleek, beautiful looking window overall though.
@kaishin: Resize lines don't exist in Lion, so I'd get used to it if I were you. He's also using Lion, from the look of the wallpaper, which also explains the traffic lights.
The paperplane is not that good, but it sure is hard in this scale, I'll give you that.
liking it very much nonetheless
@Justin Sure. What is the solution suggested by Apple for resizing then?
Greatly it pleases me!
@kaishin you can resize from any corner of a window. the cursor changes when its over an edge. contextually, the resize lines no longer make any sense because you can resize from anywhere.
Does postbox have an archive feature yet?
