  • Options for auto-start, auto-stop and auto-restart on crash.

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.

@shardix and anyone else interested:

Yeah, I know I am five years late to the party, but at the bottom of the page for the link that is supposed to be in English (but is still in Italian), there is a link to an actual english version:

The english version is just text, but one can look at the images in the Italian tutorial.

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

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!

yeah -- unfortunately you can't send -- you have to configure the smtp for one of your existing other accounts, such as a gmail address.

the documentation or tutorials explain this -- macfreepops only retrieves incoming mail (which is still very useful)

cheers!
