PopPeeper - a lot more than just peeping at your email

review by Respect2Glory, Sept 2006, permalink


From Respect2Glory:

Last week I read about what John Wharepapa said about PopPeeper in your FreePops comments. I decided to try it since I hadn't loaded FreePOPs yet on my new laptop. The install went smoothly with the setup for yahoo, hotmail and my own ISP email, but gmail required their plugin to work. No big deal. I followed their instructions and now I can see all of my email in one place!


PopPeeper is more than I ever expected. It not only checks your email, but it also views your email in its own browser (hotmail's webpage didn't display correctly) but the email itself appeared normally. I've got my online email tweaked to strip HTML in case I read an infected email. Once I'm sure the email is from who it says it is from and I'm satisfied it's a clean email, then I click to view the whole email that includes HTML.


Surprise, the 'reply' button allows you to forward an email, but there's no forward button. Also, replies are all in text, and I had to manually type in email addresses. It might not be as loaded as Outlook Express, but PopPeeper isn't sucking down my system resources either. I'm very happy with this little gem.
