FreePOPS - bring all your web mail into an email client

review from ClifNotes, Apr 2005, updated Sept 2006, permalink


Do you have free email accounts at HotMail, Yahoo, AIM, or some other domain that makes you go online to see your email? You don't have to go to their web sites to see your mail there if you don't want to. Start FreePOPs up and then open up Outlook Express, ThunderBird, or most other email clients. FreePOPs actually creates a POP3 server on your machine and then it surfs out to your free web mail accounts and sends the mail to your email program. The email accounts have to be set up in a special way for this to work. The tutorials have been updated since I last used it and you should be able to figure it out. If you have any trouble setting it up, just email me and I'll try to help you out. Another good program for bringing in email like this is MrPostman.



Quote from the website

FreePOPs is an easily extensible program, which allows access to the most varied resources through the POP3 protocol.


Mainly, it can be used to download mail from the most famous webmails, but it could also be used as an aggregator for RSS feeds and much more. This way it is possible to get all your messages in your favorite email client.


FreePOPs is Free Software!
