But Apple Mail still works great for POP. Just needs to be set up for. There's a button that says Done, in Setup (if I'm recallng correctly) that if hit with Option key, goes to next panel to input POP info.

And for some reason, Gmail works fine set up on web with both IMAP (for devices) and POP, which I prefer on my MBPro.

downloaded v2.9.2 and installed on wife's intel iMac running 10.5.8. MyPopBarrier will not launch. Throws a dialog saying this version will not run under this version of OS X.
MacUpdate listing shows v2.9.2 should run under 10.5.8

Tried to contact developer using "contact" link in MyPopBarrier (programs) page. Did not bring up email form.

I enjoyed the observation that the previous icon was "not appreciated". True enough. This is still a useful tool for peeking at and cleaning out junk from the mail server.

Can this be used on a Gmail account? There are 2 virus-infected emails in mine from years ago that Google can't find or access, but they are always detected by ClamXav whenever I open my Gmail account with Apple Mail for the first time in new OS X installations.

I have a Google account and I can read emails with MyPopBarrier. Enter the user name without "@gmail". Then if your email is "MyGoogEmail@gmail.com" then enter only "MyGoogEmail". Enter your password, then the server "pop.gmail.com". The port is "995" and check "SSL" and "1". I will add a screencapture on MPB FAQ. It will be more clear and you're not the first to ask about Google account.

This beta version addresses the occasional freeze that I get with this app due to large e-mail. I have used this for some years already and contributed to the developer as well. It is the most useful way of peaking in my mailboxes (and each e-mail) and throwing out trash quickly instead downloading trojans or whatever.

I take it that the warning - "this not good email to delete" - 'STOP', actually means that there is a limit to the number of emails that can be deleted from the server at any one time. So if you try to delete 5 or 6 the operation will work fine, but if you try to delete 15 or 20 that strange message comes up. So the message should say "The limit of emails you can delete from the server in a single pass is X" - whatever X is.

Hope that helps.

It does not depend of the number of email to delete.
Each email has an ID, after PickUp email, when you click Purge, MyPopBarrier remove each email with a red dot sending it's ID. But before that, it download a small part of the email again to compare the Subject, the sender and recipient to be sure it's the good email to remove. If it's not the same, it's because the ID changed, if the ID changed, it's because another application removed an email (then if remove the ID 3, the ID 4 become, 3, the ID 5 become 4, etc.). In this case MyPopBarrier stop.

Love this app. However, if you barrack for France it will always be in beta! Ha Ha. But truly, this is going in the right direction. There is a weird bit here and there like "this not good email to delete", whatever that means. I'm sure that sooner or later you will get an English translator to make sense of it all - but not if France beats England.

To Thomas-
1. Thank you for developing a superb eMail filtering app.
2. I'd like to see the ability to reply/compose eMail messages right from MPB w/o going to Mail.app.
3. Since I'm not FR., I'd like to see a full Anglo translation of your site.
4. It would be nice to reach you periodically by a simple eMail handle.
5. I think it would be nice for you to include a pref entry which would allow me to access my default eMail client when a more complete response is needed.
Thanks.

1. Thank you.
2. I know how to do, I do it in another program (to say "thank you" to people who donate), but I prefer to not add too many functionality. And in this case, user won't have a copy of the email he sent in his folder "emails sent".
3. The part of my website about my programs is translated in English (click the flag if not). Other pages are for various information about me and my family. But who care?
4. My email is in the "About MyPopBarrier" window. But why reach me periodically?
5. It would be the case if I would add the 2. feature.

For those who don't know, a PPC version of the program is available on the developer's site. MU should add a link on this page.

Sorry, it's my fault again. I did my test with one or two accounts and it was ok. But in "real use" with many account it's very very long to read many Password in KeyChain with AppleScript.
Then I remove the b1 version and I'm working on b2 reading password with Shell command.
Sorry, I was anxious to see France win yesterday.
