Mail Beacon is an excellent application. It runs from my USB flash drive beautifully. I can take it to any Mac without having to set up preferences each time.
Because the app looks for the preferences in the same folder as the Application before looking in the System Folder.

Author: Isn't it past time to encrypt the password in the preference file? Plus the emails are stored there as well. Opened the preference file w/ BB Edit Lite, and there it all is in plain view. Very insecure for a 2.1 version. No purchase from me.

An exceptional e-mail checker! Totally stable & works as advertised. Bains is constantly improving his product line and this release of MB is no exception. Loaded with many convenient features which preclude the necessity of launching your mail client for handling routine messages. The nominal shareware fee makes this one a "must have" program, as it represents an excellent value.

This micro program allows you to read, write, and delete your email directly off your server before and without downloading it onto your computer and into a typical bloated processor hungry e-mail program.
Keep this program on all day. Then open and use your download program at the end of the day.
Best spam filtering on this type
of program I have seen .
Great tech support!!!!!
