An “RC” is a Release Candidate, it means that there are no known bugs and there likely won’t be any new features added. So what happened to RC1 and RC2? After building an RC, I give myself and testers 24 or so hours to make sure everything is good. Neither passed the 24-hour test, mostly because I realized certain things weren’t complete.

Archive: This new feature allows you to save the selected message(s) in the standard .eml format. Eventually, Sent Mail Viewer will be updated to display these messages; for now, you can simply archive them and view them with your favorite email client (which, obviously, is POP Peeper and you can make it the default .eml viewer). The archive command is located in several places: select a message (or multiple) in the message list and right-click to access archive; add the archive button to the main toolbar; when viewing a message, select Message / Archive or add it to the Message toolbar. If you want to access the folder that contains your archived messages, from the main menu, select Messages / Explore Archive folder.

Folder support: This has been a popular request that I put on temporary hold until recently. This feature requires an updated Add-on Pack installation which isn’t quite ready, so you won’t be able to use this feature yet. However, it’s addition did spur another popular request — the ability to copy an account. Right-click on an account and select “duplicate.”

Read Message (speech): This feature will allow the Add-on Pack’s voice notifier to read your message out loud (or just the header). The required update for the Add-on Pack isn’t available yet.

  1. I’m facing a problem on using this version of pop peeper. after i create an account and checked email, the inbox is empty. then, i check my email on the web, there are some new emails. This mean that some problem is there on pop peeper on retrieve emails.

  2. Welson — Please email tech support if you’re still having this problem.

  3. What kind of Add-on Pack is required for Folder support?

    How about an “archive as” (a-la “save as”) option? That is, ask where to save (for those who don’t need Sent Mail Viewer).

  4. wc — The “Add-on Pack” I’m referring to is here; as I mentioned before, the particular feature isn’t available yet. The archive feature is intended to be a quick and easy way to save messages. If you want to mimic “save as,” then using the “view source” method is suggested (view message, select File / View Source, save the resulting text file as a .eml file). “View source” has been added to the context menu in the message list, so now you can access it without having to view the message.

  5. Disappointed that the Add-on Pack requires activation. I run Pop-Peeper from USB stick and would much prefer a portable Add-on Pack .

  6. The Add-on Pack is still intended to be portable. If you are having a problem where it keeps asking you to re-activate when you restart, please email tech support. This issue has been reported by others and a fix is currently being tested by them.

  7. Thanks for a great, quick release! I’m especially thankful for the mail.com IMAP and IDLE fixes, UTF8 and EML support 🙂

    Cheers from Romania!
