Love PopBarrier to death, but v3.07 is full of new bugs and it's a mess. Stick with v3.06.

The new icon looks great and this functions just as it should. It is the quickest and easiest way for me to peek at emails without downloading them - much faster than using Apple Mail.

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.

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.

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.

thanks Tom, don't want to complain to much as you do a great job and it's free but why not use standard UI commands like left click or a dedicated button good simple software like this should not need a manual to accomplish this. thanks a lot ;-)

so how does it work?? It seems like developer omitted the most important feature which would be to select multiple email to delete them. I can only mark all or non via shift > error key why not have a button mark selected messages???

Good app but needs fixing (2.6.2) From what i gathered based on the problems i have : Doesn't work if you have the same user name and same password with two different ISPs (won't create account) or even just the same user account with different passwords and ISPs (won't read emails except for the ones on the first account of the two thus created). Wrote to the developer to explain that. Will keep you guys posted of his reply. FMN (MacMini - 10.5.7)

Yahoo doesn't allow POP forwarding unless you pay for it first. Does this work for Yahoo without having to pay? Peace, Piper

works ok for me on Intel Mac Pro. Two things are missing in my book to make it an excellent program: 1. Column with the send date 2. The ability to have each account in a separate window But thanks developer for putting the effort in and making it free.

This is a great application and (nearly) unique for the Mac. I have two old POP3 email accounts which are completely overrun with spam but, occasionally, have a worthwhile email sent to them so cannot be ignored for too long. The inbuilt spam checks look "too simple" but, in fact, work very well and it takes a couple of minutes per day to manage these accounts. Much faster than downloading to an email client or redirecting to a Web mail account to filter there!

Tried this app but all I get are errors like "Error: 20" and "Error: 103". The mail accounts I used are valid and work great with other mail apps. I post this message here as I found no place to report this on the author's web site.

I just wanted to say thanks to the developer. I just switched to a Mac 4 months ago and didn't know an app like this was available for Mac's until today. I used MailWasher (very similar) to manually filter/delete spam on the server before downloading to my WinPC. (I prefer doing it manually than with auto filters) Now with MyPopBarrier I can do it on my Mac. Just like MailWasher, it's simple and to the point. So Thanks a lot. :)

Personnellement, je trouve ce logiciel carrément génial. Il ne lui manque presque rien pour qu'il soit parfait, une seule chose peut-être. Serait-il possible d'afficher sur l'icône du dock, le nombre de messages en attente sur le ou les serveurs. Un très très grand bravo et un gros merci aux développeurs.

I was looking for an app like this since MailTicker stopped functioning on my new mailserver. There are some things that can be made better though. First of all, the app should only make a sound when new mail arrives, not every time it checks for new mail! A beep every minute, or even every five minutes for no good reason is very annoying. It's so annoying I can't use this app right now. This should be removed in the next version. Please? And I have a few suggestions: - I would love MyPopBarrier to have a menu-item which shows me how many new mails are waiting on the server. - wouldn't it be possible to delete a message when you press backspace? Or maybe Command+Backspace. That feels more natural than changing the state of a message and then pressing a button, don't you think? - Maybe growl-support for when a new message arrives? But the thing that's most important is that you only hear the alert when a new message arrives.

With MyPopBarrier I've finaIly found an inexpensive (actually free) solution to kill spam directly on the server. Basically easy to setup and use since it runs locally from user's machine, under the OS-X GUI. Works accross multiple email accounts -- much quicker than logging in and out of a number of webmail accounts. Also, selecting messages for purging is a snap; plus messages can get pre-selected as spam or non-spam based on keywords and origin. Not much "bells and whistles" in the latter facility. But appears to work better so far than other spam filter rule systems I've tried elsewhere, although it takes a while (or simply an application restart?) for a new rule to get considered. Generally, documentation (squeezed in the About dialog) is a bit scarce. What's that tiny telefon icon lower down righthand side? Seems to switch some function on/off -- yet which one?
