MacFreePOPs2.9

27 August 2014

Downloads Web-based mail to a POP client.

Overview

MacFreePOPs... Many providers don't allow users to access their mailboxes with traditional e-mail client (Mail, Outlook, Eudora ...). For many users the only access method is the web-mail interface that peraphs is not flexible and efficient enough. To restore traditional POP3 access the project FreePOP started at Sourceforge.net.

Main features:

  • Integration with Dock and Menu-bar
  • Starting, stopping ad monitoring of freepopsd server
  • Set-up of all communication parameters
  • Options for auto-start, auto-stop and auto-restart on crash.
  • Real-time visualization of log file
  • Automated check ad download of newer version
  • Give detailed plug-ins information

What's new in MacFreePOPs

Version 2.9:
  • Fixed the update system to walkaround the down of the official web site (www.freepops.org)
  • All plug-ins are updated to latest versions (including a working version for Libero.it and associated domains)
  • Tested on OS X 10.10 Yosemite (Beta6)

Wow!!! I can finally receive hotmail.com mail in the Mail app of mac os x!!! Macfreepops is really useful, even if the user interface is... umm.. weird. It's just not user friendly, but once you get your head around it (it basically needs no interface after all) you can start to receive mail in your account. The basic think to do is open the MacFreePOPs application and click "Start Server", then open your mail application, create a new account and enter your details plus those that appear at the bottom of MacFreePOPs window. Then check your mail, and it should work. (In Apple's mail, you'll have to take a trip to the "Advanced" tab of account preferences after you've created the account to change the port #). Enjoy! I sure do!

I am only getting Yahoo headers, not the body of the email with Lepoard 10.5.3 and MacFreePOPs 2.5. Is there a setting I need to change? Thanks.

Hello Shadow I am retarded, why don't you put a little series of screenshots using MAIL as of course it does NOT appear on the info page.. after all this is a MAC site, why should ANYONE care to use APPLE'S MAIL LOL 'Cause at this point I'm "desperate" to receive my leftover Hotmail Spam'a'Spanky directly into my APPLE MAIL mailbox :-) Oh HELL who uses these services anyway apart to order viagra away from wifey and the kids' screen and to get a chat nickname for MSN LOL
