Editors' Review

+
Keeping track of several e-mail accounts can be annoying. Thankfully, ePrompter's bare-bones yet effective approach helps you solve this hectic problem. Utilizing an uncluttered interface and stone-simple setup, ePrompter does one thing and does it well. You can set the application to check up to 16 password-protected e-mail accounts, including Hotmail and AOL. Notification consists of a flag in your system tray--color coded for each different e-mail account--and a choice of five screensaver options. When you get a new message, you simply click the icon and start reading. Composing a new e-mail or responding is just as easy. Though it's not jam-packed with features, we have no problem recomending ePrompter to anyone with multiple e-mail accounts

"TERRIBLE -- There are Better Programs Available"

March 07, 2014  |  By benistheman

 |  Version: ePrompter 2.0

Pros

Absolutely no pros (Looks like Windows 95? Maybe that's a pro, if you like that kind of thing. Didn't completely destroy my system? I guess that's a pro. Nice logo? That will only get you so far. It convinced me to install it but I'm really sorry I did.)

I'd give it ZERO STARS if c|net allowed it.

Cons

Failed to find server, the interface looks like Windows 95. Smells like malware, it's so cheap looking, it might even have security flaws, it's so poorly put together. Relies on custom screen-savers that do not seem to work, at least where I work. Complete waste of time. Nothing but regrets.

Summary

WARNING -- Sorry if that seems harsh. Don't waste your time on this one. This program might have potential if they do more development, but there are better programs available.

Recommendations / Alternatives:

#1. If you're using Chrome browser, try the Checker Plus browser extension. Set it for Text notifications that never fade from sight. That's not a system tray icon but it works, and the extension is really good. Get it in the Chrome web store.

#2. If you really want a Windows system tray icon, try Gmail Notifier, from gmailnotifier.com It has a flashing icon, checks Gmail once about every 60 seconds, and has basic email capabilities (read mail, mark-as-read, delete). It can't launch the browser, but that's its only real problem.

"Eprompter is BINDED WITH A BOT !!!"

November 05, 2012  |  By bktruss

 |  Version: ePrompter 2.0

Pros

NONE - This will make you join a botnet

Cons

Phones home upon installation and periodically afterwards to a known C&C server (141.8.225.13)

https://palevotracker.abuse.ch/?ipaddress=141.8.225.13

Virustotal shows 0/43, Anubis says it clean. This is because it is crypted to prevent Anti-virus from detecting it and it has Anti's to prevent it from executing in a virtual enviroment or a sandboxed enviroment to prevent reverse engineering. But if you install and watch the firewall logs, as soon as you install and continually afterwards it will phone home to the C&C for instructions. 16 computers in my network started a DDOS attack bogging down the whole network. We downloaded from all the third-party sites that host this and all of them do the same, so it's obvious this was done by the developer.

Summary

This is probably there is countless reviews of people not being able to uninstall.

"Do NOT Install | Program Does Work | Hard to Uninstall!"

August 08, 2011  |  By compuable

 |  Version: ePrompter 2.0

Pros

No Pros AT ALL: I used to use ePrompter and loved it (way back when) but it is apparently no longer being updated. The final upgrade/update of ePrompter download SR120 was released on 8/29/08 and the Pop Peeper program is vastly superior in all ways.

Cons

Unfortunately the program has apparently been abandoned by the developer Tiburon Technology.

Summary

The program installs OK but then just sits there on the taskbar not functioning properly but worse yet; not even warning the user that there is a problem. Also it was a nightmare to uninstall. Said that it had been completely uninstalled, but it actually was not. It was no longer in the Add/Remove list or program list and left lots of junk files in the Windows registry (that I had to painstakingly remove manually).

On the developer's support forum the Admin asks for "Patience and hope for devoted ePrompter users waiting and want to help fix ePrompter." However the program is no longer being updated (the final ePrompter download SR120 was released on 8/29/08) and no longer functions properly so it is not a worthwhile download IMO.

On the bright side of things, I tried out and currently use the Pop Peeper program; which is vastly superior to ePrompter in all ways. I have attended many computer-related as well as freeware-related forums over the years and I have yet to see any major bugs, security flaws etc. reported or even a single 'credible' negative review of Pop Peeper.

You can download the Pop Peeper program from CNET here:

"No support for Indiatimes!"

July 09, 2011  |  By Neer_j

 |  Version: ePrompter 2.0

Pros

America oriented

Cons

America oriented. Except for Rediff, no other non-American, non-1st world, non-white-people-type email service provider supported. Why?

Hey Brasilians, South Africans and other 3rd worlders, do you see YOUR EMAIL SERVICE PROVIDER IN EPROMPTER?

Summary

The version available for download on CNET is of 2005, for Christ's sake!!! This is 2011!

6 year, apparently abandoned. No support for Indiatimes.

Outdated, obsolete, a dinosaur in the 2nd decade of the 21st century.
