 Email FreePOPs - bring all your web mail into Outlook Express
Do you have free email accounts at HotMail, Yahoo, or some other domain that makes you go online to see your email? I have several free accounts at those places and I don't have to go to their web sites to see my mail there anymore. I just start FreePOPs up and then open up Outlook Express. FreePOPs actually creates a POP3 server on your machine and then it surfs out to your free web mail accounts and sends the mail to your Outlook Express or other email program. The email accounts have to be set up in a special way for this to work. There is a little tutorial on how to set it up correctly. The tutorial would sure make more sense to me if it didn't show screen shots of an Italian version of Outlook Express. I still figured it out. If you have any trouble setting it up, just email me and I'll help you out. Another good program for bringing in email like this is MrPostman.

Website - Download - Freeware (Open Source) Thanks to Me2 @ Computer Help Club for telling me about this program

Quote from the website - FreePOPs is an easily extensible program, which allows access to the most varied resources through the POP3 protocol. Mainly, it can be used to download mail from the most famous webmails, but it could also be used as an aggregator for RSS feeds and much more. This way it is possible to get all your messages in your favorite email client.
