POP Peeper

CNET Editors' review

This e-mail client application notifies you when e-mail comes in to any POP, MSN, Hotmail, or Yahoo account you specify. Despite being freeware, POP Peeper is a full-featured program with numerous settings and configurations. It lets you assign different WAV files as notification sounds for each of your various e-mail accounts. The program also sends visual notification.

You can open either POP Peeper or your e-mail client to check your new mail. Extensive help is available within the program and at the publisher's Web site. Modem users will appreciate the program's ability to go online, check e-mail, and log off at a specified interval. Folks with multiple e-mail accounts and not a lot of cash are most likely to benefit from POP Peeper.

    "Using Pop Peeper for 2 years..."

    October 18, 2006  |   By Just_a_User

    Version: POP Peeper 2.4.3

    Pros

    It's a tiny no-nonsense application that really works. I'm still impressed after 2 years of using Pop Peeper. I can't do without it.

    Cons

    None.

    "Best of its kind."

    October 11, 2006  |   By mmann

    Version: POP Peeper 2.4.3

    Pros

    Checks all mail accounts POP, Web based and IMAP & Gmail in v3.0RC. Reads mail in plain text, rich text or HTML, your choice.

    "Sensational"

    June 7, 2006  |   By seantoboy

    Version: POP Peeper 2.4.3

    Pros

    Manages my POP3, Hotmail and Yahoo! mail accounts with ease. I can easily preview and delete mail from POP Peeper. New version with Outbox allows replying and sending new mail directly from Pop Peeper.

    "I have long loved this little mailbox bugeyed in my sys tray."

    May 30, 2006  |   By cilypudi

    Version: POP Peeper 2.4.3

    Pros

    Easy install and friendly interface. Small footprint. One click and I can quickly look at all 4 of my email accounts, each color coded. Can safely view any of them without opening the actual mail, even enticing, funky looking mail. Couple more clicks, can mark all mail as read, "X" to delete and clear the Peeper box. Waves its little flag and looks around when new mail arrives, sleeps when empty. I'll always have it around. Haven't found another free program even similar to it. Brett Kitchens highly recommends it if you have more than one email account. Very practical. Better than super glue, and never implant the VeriChip!

    Cons

    Absolutely none. But I haven't tried to send mail with it or use its other functions. I simply use it to quickly view all my email in one click. I didn't even download this latest version. The last one works fine for my uses. Don't want to mess up a good thing. I wanted to see what the new version had though.

    "The Best Email Checker (Free or otherwise)"

    May 28, 2006  |   By Nighted

    Version: POP Peeper 2.4.3

    Pros

    Does what it says, checks multiple accounts. Has lots of options and a very cool, customizable popup notification window.

    Ignore the more negative reviews and properly config the program and keep up to date with the plugins, which it will do without you, and you'll know you've found a great application.

    Cons

    For the current version there's no way to open your default brower if it's anything other than IE...but this is known and will be added in the next release.

    "I have lots of email accounts; POP Peeper keeps them organised."

    April 25, 2006  |   By tjWart

    Version: POP Peeper 2.4.3

    Pros

    POP Peeper has all the customisation you would ever need when trying to check multiple email accounts.

    PEEPer gives each email a different colour so you can scan through your long list of emails and weedle out the ones you need; or you can just select the accounts you want to diminish the list to those specific emails.

    There are Setup Wizards to help users that want to quickly make the program work for them; and these are easy to use.

    It's great; and I can't recommend it enough.

    "Good"

    April 20, 2006  |   By bugmenow

    Version: POP Peeper 2.4.3

    Pros

    Good support for clients, what I didn't like about ePrompter is that it doesn't support users of Windows Live Mail and Yahoo Mail beta.

    Cons

    Gmail and Googlemail support please!

    "Doesn't work as I expected."

    April 9, 2006  |   By ignorant monkey

    Version: POP Peeper 2.4.3

    Pros

    Pros: The ability to summarize on a single application several email addresses.

    Cons

    CONS: The most dissapointment was not able to tell if in reality you have a new email or not. I logged in several times and the small icon never flagged announcing any new emails. Then I went to check each of my email accounts to noticed I actually had several emails the little flag never seemed to notice. I have unistalled it and have got back to manually check each one of my email addresses.
