Poppy needs a working internet connection and is typically used in combination with an ?always on? internet connection, such as a cable or DSL connection. It can be used with a dial-up connection, but that is not very effective.
Once you have started Poppy, you will see an icon in the so-called system tray or taskbar notification area. When Poppy detects that mail is available on any of the configured POP3 servers, it will let you know by changing the taskbar icon. Optionally, Poppy can also play a sound, execute an external program (like your e-mail program) or show a popup window containing a notification message.
