Looking for a good Pop3 Mail checker for Windows, and for Mac OS X. Ideally, it should meet the following:
- Free (open source preferable, but not required)
- Unobtrusive unless it finds mail (then it should notify me)
- Fast, Silent, Low CPU/RAM
- Bonus if I could have it ask to open up a specified URL, rather than my pop3 email client (Mozilla).
I’m mobile most of the week, and not at my primary computer. As a result, I use webmail for quite a bit. I don’t like leaving webmail open. So a pop3mail checker would be nice. I keep my personal mail on my laptop. But I like my business stuff on my Mac, as that’s where I work mostly.
AOL Instant Messenger appears to have one, but because my login contains the full username, it apparently doesn’t work, even if replacing “@” with “%”, or “&” as some have suggested in the past.
So my question is. What do you use? What product works good for you?
