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 love this monitor but have since been advised by Author that it will no longer be worked on or updated.
This since I have discovered that in Tiger you can no longer bounce a message back.
Although this may not be crucial it would be nice to still have this facilty.
It would also would be nice to have an improved GUI to bring it up to date...one lives in hope.

Maybe there is another programme out the that does the same thing???

I don't have any problems using this program, but it would be nice if in the account window when there was an unread message it would be in bold or have some sort of marker so you know if a new message has been received by your inbox. I have it set to alert me when a new message is in, but it can become an issue if you have multiple emails from the same person along with new emails from a different sender.

I took the time to send an E-Mail to the developer, respectfully suggesting that POPMonitor was due for an overhaul. This is his response

Unfortunately I've had to postpone the development of POPmonitor 3 for an undetermined period of time. The economic situation here in the Netherlands is not as great as it used to be so I have to focus on more profitable
activities right now.

I can't tell if and when there will be a release of POPmonitor 3.
Sorry...

Thats probably the most irresponsible reply I have ever had but at least it clarifies matters and leaves an opening for a developer to bring out a similary product.

I changed the name of the Popmonitor application Icon (mine is now called "E-mailMonitor") as is suggested in the PopMonitor Web site, and I never had the problem quitting the application. Now it works for me in OS 10.4 as good as in my old iMac with system 9. I just love this application, because I never had to read those psychotic words that come in spam email subjects.

Great tip re: name change. Works a treat in Snow Leopard now.

The crash issue is cleared up on the FAQ page and is a Tiger error - not POPmonitor.

All in all I think this is just about the equal of Mailwasher on the PC and certainly much, much better than the buggy Mac mailwasher released recently (which has been dev frozen).

This is elegent and has the advanced features (regexp filtering etc) and configurability that put this above some of the "learning" email filters out there.

Try it - then buy it - definately worth the asking price.

Popmonitor 2.1.3 crashes under "Tiger" when 'quitting the application'.
IMHO, it needs to be updated for OS X.4.

I have been a registered user of PopMonitor for over a year. It's simple, yet elegant, to use. Successfully traps over 90% of the SPAM I get with just its default filter package. Highly recommended; works independently of your e-Mail client so it gives you many options PRIOR to downloading any e-Mail to your Hard Drive. PopMonitor is an EXCELLENT anti-SPAM value. Get it!
