5.0.3 - it always tries to connect to a site each time it starts, despite automatic updates are deactivated.
4.5.3 works fine for me and doesnt show this curious behaviour.

npop is working with gmail.

drongo on 2010-04-30 14:13

nPOP has been a long-time favorite of mine for doing previews, quick replies, etc. Emails I want to archive I then download to another -- usually clunkier and nonportable -- client.

But actually I use the nPOPQ offshoot, available here: ... because I like the interface better. I hope that gets updated.

nPOPuk not being compatible with old email messages is kind of dealbreaker, nice as it sounds.

drongo on 2010-04-30 14:30

I spoke too soon above on nPOPuk not being compatible with old email boxes. It imports settings and old emails from nPOP just fine. And it does have some useful features lacking in nPOP.

However, I still like the nPOPQ interface better: There the left column has accounts on top and address book on bottom, while the right side has messages on top and message preview on the bottom.

@Kea: added Win10 to system requirements. Tested in Windows 10 and works fine!

smaragdus on 2016-03-09 21:31

PopMan is great but unfortunately it seems to be abandoned. There is one thing I don't like about it- PopMan doesn't support Unicode.

JudyGarland on 2018-11-04 15:31

- is not a valid win32 application

Important to know:
i.Scribe Free only support one (1) mail account.

Falaffel on 2017-07-26 21:38


I tried zo use I.Scribe vie Imap with my Mailbox. Unfortunately the Imap functionality of I-Scribethis seems to be completely not in a good sape. The performance when synchronizing folder or moving/deleting Emails is very, very slow.
Could it be I am making anything wrong or the actual build has some bugs?

webfork on 2017-07-27 04:07

@Falaffel: I'm not an i.Scribe user so you probably want to try contacting support about that. Failing that, you might try listing something in our troubleshooting forums to see if someone has run into a similar issue.
