"An excellent lightweight multi-account pop3 checker"

October 13, 2008  |  By Patabugen

 |  Version: Popcorn 1.87

Pros

Very clean fast GUI
Clear indication as to which accounts have new emails - and how many
TotalSize field useful if you have a quota.
Ability to download up to X bytes initially, & everything on load
Fast at downloading
Seach
Excellent Help File

Cons

It checks the accounts one at a time, not simultaneously.
Stops Everything on error (e.g server not found)

Summary

It checks the accounts one at a time, not simultaneously. Not a problem, just means if your waiting for an email you cant just hit 'Check' and see - you have to wait for it to check every account

After you add an account you have to manually tell it to download existing emails - not just new ones. Could be a pro or a con, it's annoyed me because i've just added my 8 accounts and have to do them all. But I can see why I might appreciate the choice after adding an account.

If it cant find the server it gives you a dialogue error and waits for you to hit OK - it would be nice for it to retry - or at least keep checking the other accounts.

The text-based configuration file makes mass editing and backing up your settings easy as cake.

"Excellent low-end email client"

October 13, 2008  |  By mhinnewyork

 |  Version: Popcorn 1.87

Pros

Fast, Free. Very safe. Portable. Handles multiple email accounts.

Cons

No longer maintained actively by the vendor. Still, this version is mature.

Summary

Great program. It is, however, not a full featured email client.
