OMG OMG OMG... I've *finally* found something to replace my beloved (now unsupported) POPmonitor, that I've been using in business for years and years now.

$7 bucks for this is great value.

I've been using POP Monitor for years and have discovered a few days ago that I could do the same and more using IMAP protocol using Apple Mail!!! :-D
To make a short story long: I first tried Thunderbird and then Opera's integrated mail feature that became my favourite, but then I had the illumination that Apple Mail could probably manage IMAP too... (I don't know why I haven't considered that option before! Maybe because I mainly use Entourage and I'm not fond of how it manages IMAP)
For something, Opera or Thunderbird offers better features (like a different checking time for any account), but when you pimp at the system Activity Monitor, they still pump power where Apple Mail remains at 0%!
So farewell POP! I now let Apple Mail check my ten accounts via IMAP every minute without any impact on system performance and when I want to download my mails for history purpose I launch Entourage.

I didn't mention the filtering capacities of POP Monitor, which were great, but as spam always changes, in the end you were spending more time building and correcting filters than if visually checking it and throwing in away...

If all you need is to be able to check messages in your POP3 mailboxes and delete unwanted mail from the servers before downloading the mail, you can do that in Apple Mail by pressing Command-I.

Um, it's 2010 - it's time to utilize mail providers that leverage modern mail protocols.

If you are still using POP3 (either by choice or by mandate), perhaps you should hire a new IT consultant or investigate other providers.

Even google gives away mail accounts that support IMAP if you don't want to pay for something like MobileMe.

This programme needs some serious work doing to it before I buy it. A great guy in Holland developed POPmonitor which is what I have always used. It had a great filter system which you could customise. The front end was uncluttered and simple.

Mailbox Manager needs to go a long way before I replace POPmonitor.

Hello AsramSoftware,

I dislike the current user interface of Mailbox Manager.
So, I decided to create anew more Apple-like user interface.

I couldn't find an emailaddress, only a form on the website.
Since I submitted that form, I haven't heard from you.

Please contact me at jorisvervuurt@planet.nl so I can send the new project files of the user interface I created.

Best regards,
Joris

This is a great utility for managing POP3 mailboxes. In addition to producing a listing of all the items in a mailbox, it can also be setup to retrieve a set number of lines from the beginning each message so they can be easily reviewed while still on the server. In addition, individual or groups of messages can be marked for deletion without downloading them. The author is extremely responsive to requests and concerns and is actively improving and expanding the features and capabilities of the program. If you have a need to manage or troubleshoot one or more POP3 accounts then purchasing Mailbox Manager for $10 will be money well spent.

Ugly GUI. It can be an alpha version, but not a final app for OS X...

Mhh... an unkown application, downloaded from the web, that can have my IP (because I entered in their site to download it) and...

ASK MY PASSWORD ???!!

Sorry guys... I quit...

Tip: Before put it, I entered in their website. When I return to the app., it functions without the need of my password... But anyway... I dont like it. I deleted.

I propose to the authors, eliminate the password need.

The password is your OSX account password, not the registration password.

Anyway, the interface is not very OSX like but it does what it needs to do just fine.

  • Mailbox: it is possible to get the list of all its messages or a selection of them (ex. the last five messages, or messages from 7 to 11); and if you leave copy of them on the server, you can retrieve only the last (new) ones.
  • Messages: of each message you can view its partial or full content; and when necessary, the message can be answered/redirected/forwarded. Its attachments too can be inspected and downloaded to disk. Should you find any undesired message, you have the option to mark it as SPAM and to delete it.
  • Databases: the SPAM database offers criteria to mark as SPAM incoming messages; while the White List database holds the addresses of friendly mails that --when checking mail-- will be marked as such.
  • Quitting MailboxManager, your Emailer application can be automatically launched to retrieve the remaining messages (or your browser may automatically connect to a site supporting Mail OnLine).
  • Scheduled mail-checking supported.
