FastMail and Pobox are the same company. FastMail purchased Pobox and Listbox nearly 3 years ago:

And Pobox is using the same app (and webmail) as FastMail for their Mailstore (mailbox) accounts.

Just came across this artice.

When it comes to innovation at FastMail, reducing the time spent in email inboxes is the top priority. New features in development include snooze and undo send capabilities, as well as a system to help customers categorize their emails more effectively.
And do not forget they worked on new service called Topicbox.

I'm aware of that, but I doubt that everybody is (especially people not following the EMD forum). And as they keep acting like two independent services outside, I find this some kind of … well, unprofessional.

Maybe somone shoud teach them how to use the identities feature…

I agree with you. It's so long since they released new features to their service. While, Gmail is updating their features more frequently and have all features you just mentioned for FREE or ~US$22 (100GB Storage annual), I do believe it's much worthy. FM needs to move faster if they don't want to lose the competition.
