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.

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.

Great e-mail client. Fully portable. Efficient and small. Very secure -- can configure to initially download e-mail headers only, mark spam for delete on server and download only desired messages. Program and mail files easily operate from a flash memory card.

Updated UK version parses html messages into very readable text.

jegHegy on 2006-12-09 indicated his mailbox "takes more than a hundred MBs". My 2007 saved mail thru late June,
after saving attachments to appropriate folders (and subsequently deleting said attachments from the e-mail messages), amounts to less than 10% of that. nPOPuk can be configured for multiple saved mail boxes to be loaded only as necessary.

I wrote the author 'cause it's really a great software. Small, cheap and easy. The only cons : can't read html messages.

Keep in mind that as of yet, nPOP dumps the whole mailbox file into RAM and keeps it there at all times. In my case it currently takes more than a hundred MBs of RAM. However, I have spoken to the developer of the UK build ( ), and he has confirmed to me that some form of caching is going to be implemented in the future, although probably not by the original author.

Very usable little app though.

Great little piece of software. Fully functional micro-email client that has attachment capabilities, saved mailes, etc. in less than 170 KB (excluding encryption libraries). It can also handle ssl connections with the encryption libriaries (+510 KB UPX compressed). With encryption, you can access Gmail accounts. I use it daily.

nPOPQ is a variant of nPOP which is a bit more ergonomic, but nPOPQ does not seem to be developed anymore. nPOPQ was just updated to version 1.08.
