Downloaded POP Peeper today…. Excellent piece of kit!
I’m going to use it for logging into POP3 accounts that just take copies of my emails to make sure I get text alerts for them. (Currently blowing away the 388 messages in that POP3 account!) – That’ll save me downloading them twice…
Also handy for my SPAM box!
POP Peeper is a small utility that runs in your Windows system tray. It visually and audibly lets you know if you have email on any number of POP3 servers as well as Hotmail, Yahoo, Mail.com, Myway, Excite, Lycos and Rediffmail. It allows you to preview the headers of your email, and view the messages. There is also support for file attachments, which allows you to view the name of the files. If you are checking multiple accounts, you can specify a custom color for each, making it easy to distinguish the messages. Message preview is quick and fully supports HTML messages. Using POP Peeper, you can quickly scan what messages are important enough to read, and which ones you want to delete without even opening your email client. The program does not provide any reply options or spam filtering like some others, however if mail notification is your main reason, than this is a great little tool that works fast and efficient.
