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!!

"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.

Windows System Control Center v2.5.0.7 Updated

Windows System Control Center (WSCC) allows you to install, update, execute and organize the utilities from various system utility suites. The program either works as an interface or as downloader. The program can work with both utilities suites downloaded or can dynamically grab and run the programs via a web connection. The included Update Manager can check for newer versions of the utilities already installed and can download and install the missing items.

Works with Windows Sysinternals and Nirsoft Utilities suites, but also highlights Windows' own utilities.

Note: The setup packages are downloaded from the author's website.

@sl23: you might want to have a look at SyMenu (http://www.portablefreeware.com/?id=2394) auto-update system...

sl23 on 2015-05-13 19:10

Thanks Midas, I've been looking at that recently, but unsure how the update works. Does it check, d/l and install any updated apps?

Also the file-system seems a bit messy for my liking, maybe just me, but at least with PA.com apps you simply chuck your apps in the folder and the menu sees them. Need to do a bit more testing to find out how things work with SyMenu before switching.

Midas on 2015-05-14 10:37

Sorry, sl23, no insight on that, since I'm not a user of either SyMenu or PAF portables -- I prefer to roll my own... :)

Notwithstanding, if still interested, check the following forum topic: http://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=21891 ...

abc: thanks for the response -- you're right that it doesn't allow for installation of multiple distributions as some of these tools do and I've modifed the entry. However, I didn't take directly from their website because this program will also work with non-Linux ISOs.

bzl333 on 2013-07-27 00:36

up to version 5.85 now at sourceforge.

TP109 on 2014-11-26 02:56

This is ideal for installing Linux distros. Has worked flawlessly so far. Can't say the same for similar apps.

freakazoid: Cool, thanks. I've been using this program for years now and I never noticed that.

Is it possible to connect via proxy which requires user and password?

freakazoid on 2015-09-08 17:29

afh: Doesn't look like you can add a user and password for the HTTP proxy. You could try something like 'user:password@yourstream.com' for the host. This might work, but I'm not sure.

If that doesn't work, you could request this feature from the developer.
