Are you a person who relies on POP3 and IMAP to gain access to your emails? Many of us do this in some shape or form, so it makes sense that you’ve been searching around for a better tool than the one you’re using right now. Now, there are quite a few POP3 and IMAP managers out in the wild, but today we’re going to focus much of our attention on PopMan. With this tool, users will be able to load their POP3 and IMAP emails without having to load them completely.
This is perfect for those who are privileged enough to have an unlimited internet connection. When it comes down to deleting unwanted emails, it’s as easy as clicking a few buttons. Additionally, we like the fact that PopMan Portable can check for emails in the background and provide notifications when new emails have arrived. Hey, it’s not a unique system by any means, but it works and with a user interface that doesn’t suck your resources dry. I mean, if emails are all you want to check with this program, then there’s no need for a resource-intensive UI.
PopMan – POP3 & IMAP4 manager
PopMan is a POP3 and IMAP4 manager that can be used to list all e-mails received on your incoming mail server, without having to load these emails.
1] Set up accounts
When it comes down to setting up a mail account, this is an easy task where PopMan is concerned. Here’s the thing, just click on File, then select the option that says Accounts. From there, a small window should appear. The user only needs to hit the button that says Add and move on from there.
Be sure to have your username and password on-hand. But most importantly, you’ll need the right protocol, server, and port information that may or may not be unique to each email service.
OK, so we have to say the Tools section has a few things to play around with, and folks should not be disappointed. At this section, there are quite a few things the user will enjoy a lot, and these things include the likes of Fonts, Font Color, Themes, and more.
We also like the fact that the option is there to launch an email client directly from the Tools tab. Not only that, but the option is there to import accounts if you so wish, and set a blacklist along with a white list for those special senders.
3] Wish to change the rules?
After using PopMan for a while, we came across a feature under the Tools tab where folks can alter the rules. Clicking the rules option will open Notepad, which is where users are required to make alternations.
Be sure you know what you’re doing before making any changes to the rules section because things could go awry.
