Hotmail Popper is a small application that allows you to check your Hotmail account from a normal POP mail client. Unlike standard mail accounts which allow users to retrieve their e-mail through a POP mail client, Hotmail can normally only be checked on the Web, or via Outlook Express. With this program you can use your favorite POP mail client to retrieve your e-mail from your Hotmail account.
Reviewing 3.0.1 (Feb 27, 2004)
Hotmail Popper works great, but unfortunately (for us), it is no longer freeware. Just look around for freeware version 2.1.1.
Reviewing 2.1.0 (Dec 10, 2003)
I've used it with Outlook 2000 and 2003, Outlook Express, Thunderbird, and Mozilla Mail with no problems whatsoever. Even better now that it supports sending mail without specifying another smtp server. Read the readme to make sure you configure your client correctly. Excellent program, and I never have to worry about overfilling my 2mb limit since it downloads all the mail to my e-mail program and deletes it (actually puts it in the trash) from Hotmail.
Reviewing 2.0.3 (Aug 15, 2003)
I've been using this for months. It works fine with Thunderbird. Very useful!
Reviewing 2.0.0 (Jun 4, 2003)
I used this with Pegasus Mail and it worked just great. Thanks.
Reviewing 1.02 (Feb 6, 2003)
Version 1.02 works fine for me. I test it with Mozilla mail and when the setting "delete messages from server..." is checked in Mozilla mail, whatever file I delete from my local inbox is deleted from the Hotmail inbox when I check for new messages.
