  • 29MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 18 Sep 2015

Users new to the program are encouraged to read an introduction (thanks guinness.)

A 64 bit version is available (within the folder).

Oops. Went to the autoit portable link, where Avast blocked the download of autoit creator.exe, claimed it was infected with Win32-Evo-gen ...

Ganamyde on 2013-12-24 08:40

Twisted language, go for AutoHotkey instead.

guinness on 2013-12-24 10:13

@IanFromBarrie, strange as Avast is being over protective. AutoIt Creator is designed by me and is not affiliated with AutoIt.

@Ganamyde, in the future please give a reason as to why that is, otherwise your comment has no merit.

POP Peeper v4.0.1 Updated

Checker on 19 Jul 2015
  • 5MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 10 Dec 2014
  • Suggested by falrob

POP Peeper is an email notifier that alerts you when you have new email on any of your POP3, Hotmail, MSN, Yahoo,, MyWay, Excite,, or RediffMail accounts. You can also send emails using your SMTP server or through your webmail account directly from POP Peeper.

To enable secure connections, see forum instructions.

System Requirements: Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: Yes
License: Freeware
How to extract:
  1. Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice
  2. Delete Pro and Themes folders, PPconvert.exe and PpHelper.exe
  3. Launch POPPeeper.exe
What's new?
  • Pro (AntiJunk): New option to ignore/skip AntiJunk for certain accounts (access under Account/Advanced); this is particularly useful if you're accessing spam folders and/or using the "hide from *all accounts*" option.
  • Pro (AntiJunk): "Delete Junk" action has been enhanced: you can now assign an additional action (e.g. minimize PP) and has a "don't prompt again" setting.
  • Pro (AntiJunk): When multiple filters (e.g. Rule) apply a different user flag, the one with the higest precedence will be used; previously, it would always use the first user flag applied which prevented a Rule to apply a user flag if the sender was in your white list (friend user flag). "Precedence" is calculated by the display order.
  • Error log window now supports clickable links (error messages from server may contain links).
  • If the new version prompt appears and you select "don't ask again" it only applies to that version; if another new version is subsequently released, you will receive the update notification.
  • Fix: Potential crash involving IMAP/IDLE and servers that don't provide a reliable connection.
  • Fix: SendMail: Certain locales couldn't parse standard timestamp and would prevent sending messages due to mis-calculated age.
  • Fix: Pro activation window may not appear when required.
  • Fix: Issues with VersionCheck preventing updates (including WebMail) from working correctly.
  • Fix: Log window will save to file immediately if enable "save changes" (instead of memory only).
  • Fix: Issues with High-contrast themes.

4.0.1 is out!!

Pony on 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.

@ Pony: Changed ;)

great program. i wish it can select the port (like 5353 etc) to defeat ISP's hijacking.

freakazoid on 2014-12-30 23:29

bzl333 - Try QuickSetDNS or Public DNS Server Tool and see if they offer such functionality. Both are listed in the Similar/alternative apps section above. I haven't tested either program to see if it matches your needs though.

Great app, portable for sure, but also quick and simple, allow to choose/change and detect fast DNS.

  • Added an internal SSH agent "MobAgent" which allows you to automatically load SSH keys at MobaXterm startup and to forward them.
  • The keyboard shortcut for "Paste inside terminal" can now be modified (default: Shift+INSERT). Remember that there is no shortcut for "COPY" as copying is performed automatically when you select some text.
  • You can now scroll in Tmux using Shift+MouseWheel if you have the "set-window-option -g mode-mouse on" feature enabled in your ".tmux.conf" file.
  • Enhanced compatibility with Emacs in terminal mode (better scrolling, better selection using shift+arrows, better home/end/arrows keys handling, better Ctrl+Alt shortcuts handling).

  • You can now select terminals for writing in "MultiExec" mode.
  • You can now force terminal font antialiasing even if ClearType is disabled in your Windows configuration.
  • Better URL detection for Ctrl+click on the terminal.

  • Telnet escape sequence was not handled correctly on German and French keyboards.
  • When using "-newtab" command with MobaXterm minimized, the application is properly restored.
  • You can now navigate in the SFTP browser using arrows, return and back keys.
  • Added some more debugging information in log for failed SFTP connection attempts.
  • HOME and END keys now work properly in "less" command.
  • Main window size/position were not automatically saved after MobaXterm was closed with some particular Windows configuration.
  • Sidebar visibility and "compact mode" were not automatically saved after MobaXterm was closed with some particular Windows configuration.
  • Corrected some issues when pasting to all terminals (in MultiExec mode): some terminals were not updated in some specific conditions.
  • Corrected a "freeze" issue when closing SSH tab with SFTP browser and "follow SSH path" checked, in some particular cases.
  • Corrected a "freeze" issue when resizing MobaXterm while a CMD or POWERSHELL session is running on Windows 10.
  • Corrected some issues with flashing taskbar or focus loss at terminal startup.
  • Disabled GSSAPI authentication attempt when it is unchecked in global settings.
  • Corrected the erroneous "closewhendone" mention in the documentation (the correct commandline parameter is "exitwhendone").
  • The "newtab" command was not starting a new tab properly for ssh commands.
  • Fixed "Decrease font size" menu entry which resized the terminal window instead of changing columns/rows number.
  • You can now extend selection using Shift+left-click.

I use this software daily in all my network admin duties. It's a wonderful piece of software and I will gladly recommend this to all my friends.

__philippe on 2013-07-25 12:58

MobaXterm alternative: For a much more compact suite of Native Win32 port of stand-alone GNU utilities, *provided an X-Server is not required*, consider also

package download (3.36Mb):

The classic, finely honed, single-purpose Unix tools "cat | grep | head | tail ..." are all in there,
(all 118 of them), including the perennial soul-searching 'whoami' operator...;-)

Tested and found to be running fine under winXP. Recommended.
