This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

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.

no I want the latest version which I downloaded I know it is in repos but I want to use the one I downloaded – Registered User Dec 17 '11 at 10:00
but the latest version is already in the repositories (0.12.4): - -- Unless you downloaded the source from the git repository? – medigeek Dec 17 '11 at 10:55
Isn't this the latest version? If it is, just use that one :p – RobinJ Dec 17 '11 at 11:35
