You don't need to do it yourself... It's in the repositories.
You can install it from the software centre.

If you still want the deb-file, run sudo apt-get download postr from a terminal.

but the latest version is already in the repositories (0.12.4): packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywords=postr - ftp.acc.umu.se/pub/GNOME/sources/postr -- Unless you downloaded the source from the git repository? –  medigeek Dec 17 '11 at 10:55
