    Yes I remember this tool from the past, and good to see it's still alive and kicking. Personally I have switched to webmail years ago, so I don't see the need for it, buut may come in handy for others. On the other hand, Yahoo Mail Basic doesn't always work correctly on my system, so perhaps I should give Pop Peeper a try.

    If any member of W. has problems with the list of languages they can refer to the procedure at the following link:

    P.S. I have disabled WOT.

    WebMail is inconvenient if you have multiple email accounts.

    I use the Pro version of PopPeeper -- have done so for years. I have 12 domains and 28 email accounts. The Peeper makes it supremely easy to manage & check all of them. It also provides good security with options to download only headers & receive in plain text only (which I do) and, thereafter, easy acquisition of desired full messages, conversion to rich text, HTML etc. Easily view message source. Has a powerful spam killer. A spell checker. I get a LOT of messages every day. The Peeper lets me sift through them quickly -- a batch of over 100 messages can be scanned -- to separate wheat from chaff -- in less than 1 minute.

    Can you use xpi. files with it, like in Thunderbird.

    I was going to say "people still use POP?" but I see it also supports IMAP so I may actually give this a look.

    I don't know but I doubt it. Why? Because An XPI file is a compressed installation archive used only by various Mozilla applications, including Firefox, Thunderbird, and SeaMonkey. It isn't even a Windows file type.

    I suggest you ask this question at PopPeeper's website. The developer's are very friendly & helpful. They might even modify the Peeper to handle .xpi files, if it doesn't handle them already.

    It's just a renamed .zip file. If you change the extension to .zip you can use any unzip utility to extract the contents.

    Yes, good point.

    Thanks, I forgot about this app. But a question that comes to mind is, what about security risks when using these kind of tools?
