Wow! Awesome!

It could use better documentation on how to set up various email clients. Once I found the information for Thunderbird, it was easy to setup. -1 for making me search. :P

Does what it says. However, the setup is much more complicated then it has to be. Downloads take forever. I could never download the .pdl file.

It need some improvements:
- Make FreePOPs Start automatically after the installations. (so no need to add manually to AutoStart)
- Add mailcity, kgb.hu or primposta.
- Add autoupdate the lua
- and others improvements.

Then release the Final version 1.0. because some people still afraid of using betas software :(

Works just as good as ever. Here is the change log:

*New plugins: criticalpath.lua, fastmail.lua (thanks russels822)
*Fixes for: libero.lua, yahoo.lua, gmail.lua, aol.lua, netscape.lua, tin.lua, hotmail.lua
*Improved: mimer.lua (that now supports specific text encoding like utf-8), browser.lua (get_head_and_body method added), httpmail.lua (fixed & problem)
*General: added compilation patch fo Solaris (thanks Alfredo Pena), some work on mlex C module to not abort brutally in case of error
*Debian: added sv debconf translation, fixed chroot generation script, changed manual license from FDL to GPL, init.d script ported to lsb-base and sh

I have used a couple of other similar software such as "HTTPMail Proxy Blueberry HOT" (http://www14.plala.or.jp...-akira/bbhot/bbhot.html) and "Hotmail Popper" (http://www.boolean.ca/hotpop/), in retrieving my web-based emails to the local mail client. However, none of the software I used works as effective and efficient to FreePOPs. And most important of all, FreePOPs is FREE and an open-source software. It always gives me a great feeling that a free open-source software performs better than the commercial software and it's further demonstrates that commercial software do NOT necessary mean better than the free and open-source ones.

FreePOPs supports a HUGE (that I do mean HUGE) list of web-based email providers, even if your provider is not listed, you can always file a request and the people working behind this project will be more than happy to create the relevant file so you can use FreePOPs with it. I have been using it since late 2004 and it just gets better and better. I have no doubts to give it a 5-stars!!

This software needs a liveupdate feature to update the LUA files.

There kinda sorta is a live updater:
http://freepops.diludovi...ndex.php?showtopic=2461

And BTW, while it technically might be a beta because its version begins with "0," note that ALL versions of the software released to date begin that way, so it's a little misleading to label it that way. In other words, unless you plan on waiting years, don't wait for it to get out of "beta."

It would be great if they include a live update feature to update the LUA files.

What a useful piece of software. Works extremely well. I now use to access Yahoo, netscape, operamail, mail.com and netzero. All mail received without a glitz. Saves much time.
Easy to use.
