See what changed

Notable changes since the last official release:

  • Voice Notifier can now show additional voices: Enable “Additional voices” on the “General” page and then access the list on the “Notification” page (in Voice Notifier settings).
  • Fix for Yahoo IMAP issue showing empty headers for messages containing attachments (Yahoo server bug)
  • Fix for cases when messages were removed from the server externally and POP Peeper didn’t detect this

Voice Notifier — to add new voices, follow these basic steps:

1) Open the Windows start menu and type and open “Speech settings”
2) Click “Add voices” (bottom) and install whatever voices you want
3) In POP Peeper, go to main menu: Tools / Voice notifier -> settings
4) Enable “Include additional voices” on the General page
5) Go to the “Notification” page and you should now see the voices available that you installed on step #2

Outlook SMTP Oauth2 error

Outlook’s SMTP server currently has an issue with Oauth2. It may be temporary but it has already lasted several days at this point. It should be fixed by Outlook eventually, but to fix this immediately, you can switch POP Peeper to use the password method instead of Oauth2:

  1. Edit the account in POP Peeper
  2. To the right of your “Login name”, change the selection to “Password”
  3. Make sure that you have the correct password entered
  4. Press “Update” to save and then you should be able to send any queued messages (press “Check Mail”)
