I use Popcorn to monitor my mail accounts.

What is Popcorn?
Popcorn is a freeware ultra-lightweight POP3/SMTP/ESMTP e-mail client for Windows 95/98/ME/NT/2000/XP.

Works as a client/server application, reading mail "directly" from POP3 servers.
Ideally suited for "on the road" mail access, for scanning, reading and sending mail over slow connections.
Supports multiple user profiles, enabling you to read and send mail from any number of accounts.
Requires no installation, no data is saved locally other than a portable .INI file containing account information.
Ideal for cleaning up POP3 accounts, removing spam, unwanted mail, large attachments etc...
Built-in mail editor enables you to compose and send new mail, reply to, forward and re-direct received mail using SMTP or (E)SMTP with authentication.
Fits easily on a floppy or other portable (even read only) media, making it easy carry around at all times

I use Eudora as my mail client.

PopPeeper for me too!
I like this program because it uses very little resources, It is very customizable and can empty the mail from Hotmail and Yahoo with out me having to sign in to their site.

Well.. at one time I would have said 3D mail effects. I was using Incredimail for awhile until I found out it phones home, and won't export messages to Outlook (my mail program). Bad proggy Bad! I'm now using Talking E-mail, and the only thing bad about it I can say is that it puts 2 icons in my system tray. I've been trying out a new proggy called Toolfish that is kinda cool. I think I'll give poppeeper a try also.. looks like it does about the same as Talking E-mail but will handle more accounts, of which I have none but the idea that it does that, and it's free, is enticing.

Just stay away from Incredimail.

Mailwasher for me, either Pro or free version. I love it. Gives me the flashing and the sound (if desired) to know there is mail, I can check it and handle it there before downloading and that sure makes me feel better in this day of constant viruses by email, and it never seems to be buggy or have a problem. Don't think it can be beat - I know I'll never be without it!

I use Poppy, because it's small, and I can check headers of emails before downloading them. That way I can nuke the spam so I don't have to waste time or bandwidth downloading them.

May I reveal my ignorance and ask what is an "email indicator"??? I have never heard the term before and can't imagine why you would need to put something about this in the new FAQ.

Mele, I guess another term would be "email checker", a program that checks your email accounts to see if you have mail. As for it being in the new FAQ, there is going to be a section for different catogories of software based on polls...

Thanks for the explanation. I can see where if you have multiple identities in OE that this might be useful since you can only keep one identity open at all times.

Popcorn is a freeware ultra-lightweight POP3/SMTP/ESMTP e-mail client for Windows 95/98/ME/NT/2000/XP.

OE gathers dust on my machine, to be honest. I've used Popcorn for a few years now in tandem with PCMag's MailCall 1.1. I suppose in my setup, Mailcall is the e-mail indicator while Popcorn is my e-mail client or at least that's the way I use them. Once Popcorn includes popup visual alert on new mail, I'll be dumping Mailcall.

what's an "email indicator"?

What does it do that my mail app can't?

Much smaller footprint for an always on process, and allows you to read and delete e-mails while they are still on the remote server rather than bringing them into your system.

Also with some, you can check more then one email account, hotmail, msn, and other web-based accounts.

I was just going to ask the same question but its answered. I use mailwasher even though I don't know the jargon.
