Popcorn is a lightweight and portable email client for Windows. Works as a client/server application, reading mail "directly" from POP servers (all downloaded mail is stored in memory only). Send and receive mail using secure SSL encrypted server connections. Ideally suited for "on the road" mail access, for scanning, reading and sending mail over slow connections. Supports multiple email accounts, enabling you to read and send mail from any number of servers. Immune to all forms of email attachment and HTML viruses/scripts/trojans because it does not display or run received attachments and/or HTML.

Great to see that this is still in development. Brings back fond memories. I'm using it as a portable mail reader on my USB drive. Excellent.
Reviewing 1.77 (Jul 19, 2007)
Enough of the grumbles about Popcorn having a paid version. Popcorn is now totally & unequivocably FREE.
There was unquestionably an update from version 1.76 to version 1.77 on July 19,2007. I verified this by SHA-1 checksum, and by the version number obtained by using Help>About in the Popcorn GUI.
The nature of the changes is explained HERE.
Obviously, the programmer changed his about about never updating this program. IMO he just couldn't stand by & desert his "baby girl" while she still had a couple of unmended snags *somewhere in her nylon knickers.* ^_^
Popcorn is a superb minimalist e-mail client. That is all it professes to be, and that is what it is.
So small you can run it from a floppy -- but BIG in stability, and fully competent in the functions it offers.
I give it a 5 in its own minimalist class, but it must rank 3 against the full-functioned clients such as Courier & The Bat. I averaged the 5 and the 3 to assign a rating of 4.

According to the website "The Popcorn e-mail client is no longer actively developed, updated or supported by Ultrafunk in any way" and that version 1.76 is "unlimited freeware".
