POP Peeper is a lot better. Admittedly I got a narky response on the POP Peeper forums when I asked about softhome.net support, but still. This program, on the other hand, has a woeful interface AND it doesn't support softhome.net either. Forget it.

I used to be a big fan of ePrompter but my needs have exceeded ePrompter's features and I had to migrate to POP Peeper.

Still, that doesn't make ePrompter a bad product and I'm glad that there's at least *one* product out there that's competing with POP Peeper :D

If you have FREE Yahoo, Hotmail, Lycos, etc accounts, this is a must.
For POP accounts, there may be alternatives.
But for the free services that otherwise require you to login to their sites, THIS IS THE ONE PERIOD!!!
I've used this one for years now.
Granted, there may be times when it will quit working for a specific service. Yahoo, Hotmail, and others change the login procedure from time to time. This is the providers causing this, NOT ePrompter.
The ePrompter team usually has a fix in a matter of days.

Free email service, free account checking without going to multiple sites,,,,
What's not to like?

I replaced this some time ago by POP Peeper which does the job better IMHO, has more options, does not add some junk to my replies, and does not "phone home" or whatever you want to call it. http://www.eprompter.com/faqs.htm#q49
It might be ok, or they say it's ok, it might even be safe, but I can't know what they do. POP Peeper NEVER connects to their server, unless you specifically ASK to check for updates.

This new version has trememdous improvements over the earlier versions. For starters, its no longer buggy, and seems to be pretty stable. I love the ability to choose my own .wav file for notification, plus the new layouts are simply slick. On the negative side though, theres still no support for GMail yet

Overall, this version is a must-upgrade for every ePrompter fan!

In terms of functionality, 5 is almost certain for everyone here, except for few fellows who have difficulties running the program.

In terms of graphical UI, it's 2. Although it provides alternative layouts, all those layouts are still not quite "modern"? (what's the proper word for that, hmm...) Get the graphics better and this rock-solid piece of work would be the best (rate of 5).

In terms of ease of use, most of you all are using it everyday and seldom using your Firefox/Safari/IE to login to Yahoo, Hotmail, AltaVista, etc... It shows this software is really an innovation. NICE JOB! So another 5 here.

Average out it's a 4

This version is extremly buggy. I recommend using ver 2.0 Build 2 EPX 1.0 (SR44). SR44 had been released a couple of days back, which was basically a fix for most of the updated mail sites (Yahoo!, Hotmail, mail.com, and more). SR44 is pretty stable and works well too. I actually use it to send and read all my mails. And the autoupdater feature is excellent! And its pretty safe too- trustable, that is.

I'll try to remain neutral on this one.
It does the job (for Hotmail, Yahoo! doesn't work anymore since some time, I guess Yahoo! modified the way their email server works ?!?), but... there's something fishy below. I filter manually with my firewall what to get through or not. If you want, it's like being offered a free lunch, but you have to stick a broom up your arse. Free, yeah kind of, all good I don't think so. I still use it though, because despite this problem it still helps for my particular situation. If the Yahoo issue isn't fixed soon, I'll trash it with no remorse and without thinking twice.

Almost never finishes. When it stalls none of the fixes work and it eats the remaining amount of computer cycles and everything else slows to a halt. Must be killed thru task manager to get computer back.

Boo! Whenever you reply to a message, it puts a big advertisement at the bottom of your message (3 lines long) that your recipient gets.

The program does have some public relations issues that the producer will have to work out, but I have been using it for at least a month and haven't seen any increase in the amout of spam I recieve on those accounts. I wouldn't use it as a main e-mail reader but it is useful to check less used e-mail accounts.

I forgot... ePrompter doesn't let you disable the call home "feature". I had to make a rules in my firewall to contain ePormpter's behavior. For autoupdates? Yeah, right...

I'm glad they updated it now. The older version was starting to wear off. As for if it harvest e-mails, you probably get spam from signing up with that ???? site last week :p And no it doesn't get your password because wouldn't they change it if they did? That way you couldn't log in? Duh.
