    "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    No longer maintained actively by the vendor.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.
