The PostBox Service is used to send emails from your ColdBox applications, as a direct replacement to the stock ColdBox MailService Plugin. Emails are sent through PostMarkApp.com API rather than over standard SMTP.

PostMarkApp (http://postmarkapp.com/) is a web service based email provider. Rather than sending emails using standard SMTP protocols, you make a REST request to their API. Each mail is then assigned a message_id, you can then use their bounce back API's and webhooks to track mail delivery.

This plugin is designed as an extension to the base ColdBox mail service, which means you should be able to implement it without any real changes to your application code, simply repoint your MailService references to PostBox rather than the stock ColdBox MailService and away you go.

Further instructions and information are available in the header of the cfc.
