Since its inception this has been a wonderfully written application, incredibly useful application. Now with the addition of portability, it is perfect. Also note that the author is top notch and cares that his freeware product is of good quality. Thats is lacking in alot of freeware authors these days.

Thank you very much for this marvellous program. Lightweight, decent-looking, intuitive and logical to use. Ability to import mail account settings from Thunderbird was a very nice surprise. If some day Thunderbird address book could also be automatically imported... I have used nPOP to check mail (with my desktop comp - Thunderbird is quite heavy-weighted and opens new windows), POP Peeper is my new choice.

PopPeeper is superb. Provides strong security against email-based malware of all types. Very stable. Stringently maintained and supported. Whether you have dozens of email accounts (as I do) or only one, PP is by far the best mail client & management tool I have ever found, & I have tried plenty of them.

I think it's not possible to stablish rules or filters, for instance, for being notified about a certain types of emails. Am I wrong?

gk 2007-11-05 09:55

works wonderfully with Excite, gmail and yahoo!

pawan 2008-01-29 19:40

I downloaded it and am running it, (V3.1), on my pendrive. It's very intuitive, (easy to use), and i'm impressed enough to make a donation. I may be old fashioned but with free software written this well I feel it's important to encourage and help fund.

Technomancer 2008-04-19 10:53

I've got v3.2 and been running it for a while, a couple of minor drawbacks though, you can save the attachments to disc but there's no 'button' to save the message. A way round this is to view the source in a text editor and save it with the extension '.eml', you can then view the entire message with, dare i say it, Outlook Express, (phoo yuk).

Excellent software. One of the best.
Now, no spam detection (blacklist, friend list, rules, etc.).
I'm waiting for the update.

Loner 2008-09-08 17:30

Finally, after several downloads, I downloaded a practical and well working program. Worth having!! Thanks to developer

Msgt 2008-09-10 12:40

I downloaded POP Peeper, but the two items to remove were not present. What did I do wrong? Thanks

atomizer 2008-11-27 14:22

pretty good app, but a bit resource hungry compared to some others. updates aren't frequent and one MAJOR downfall is no filtering - at all. i see Gmacri (poster above) is waiting on spam filtering. don't hold your breath :) i've been waiting for at least a year and it's one of the most requested features.

LiftingHeavy 2009-01-24 07:43

Excellent program. I've used it for a couple of years now and have had no issues with it. I use it to monitor several yahoo and gmail accounts.

Indyram 2009-03-26 08:37

msgt...The two files are not there to remove
Sometimes it is not there. Don't worry

Works well easy to setup
But I don't think it is Unicode compliant
I receive Non-Roman font emails
I am not able to read those mails
I have selected the appropriate Unicode font
There is only one grayed out utf8 encoding available

Very nice program, thank you developer. The main thing I am missing and it is big.. the option to archive the messages (in Gmail) instead of jut deleting them or leaving them there. Until this is implemented I still have to login to Gmail quite often. IMHO, the programs needs that feature:)

Roz 2009-07-17 15:52

Pure awesomeness. Very easy to use.

Gmacri 2009-08-23 13:46

With POP Peeper I can check Yahoo mail by POP3 account (with others similar programs I can't), also Gmail, and Hotmail, and as might be expected SSL POP3 accounts.Great program!

Ramón 2009-08-23 16:04

good job. thanks a lot and, please, follow this way.

Mike 2009-08-26 15:03

One of the best e-mail programs I've used. It works well with my ISP's SSL-based POP3 e-mail. It's programs like this that make visiting Portable Freeware so enjoyable.

Elad 2010-01-17 09:46

Simply the best email notifier with many functions...

mindstalker 2010-01-22 16:54

the ONLY email client that works with ALL!!! my email accounts: 2 yahoo, 2 hotmail, and 1 gmail

djc 2010-02-10 19:00

As a blind person using speech I needed a new email client. I gave this a try and I am quite impressed. I found it easy to set up and it works well with my screen reading software.

I think POP Peeper has get a new vendor:


Wolfghost 2015-04-22 22:33

4.0.1 is out!!


Pony 2015-07-19 07:53

"POP Peeper IS an email notifier" but is categorised under "Internet - Email Clients (4)" ("email clients as a supplementary function") with EssentialPIM, SeaMonkey and Opera Presto.
Surely, POP Peeper would be better categorised under "Internet - Email Clients (11)" ("email clients as a primary function") with nPOPuk, PopMan, etc.


Checker 2015-07-19 18:50

@ Pony: Changed ;)


Wolfghost 2016-04-02 04:38

POP Peeper is out!
