Hotmail Popper is a small application that allows you to check your Hotmail account from a normal POP mail client. Unlike standard mail accounts which allow users to retrieve their e-mail through a POP mail client, Hotmail can normally only be checked on the Web, or via Outlook Express. With this program you can use your favorite POP mail client to retrieve your e-mail from your Hotmail account. UsageFirst, run Hotmail Popper if it is not already running. There is no interface to see most of the time, except for a small icon in your Taskbar Notification Area. You can right-click on this icon to set options (see below), although most users will not need to change the settings from their defaults. To configure your e-mail client, setup a new POP account to check mail from. For the POP server's address, type "127.0.0.1" (or if you modified the Hotmail Popper options, use whatever you changed the address to). For the login / username for this account, use your full Hotmail address, for example "firstname.lastname@example.org" or "email@example.com". Finally, your password will be the same as your normal Hotmail password. Please be aware that your password is case sensitive so be careful about which letters are capitals; this is not usually true when logging into your Hotmail account on the web, so be sure to double-check this if your password is said to be invalid. Now just check your mail as usual. The account you just configured will retrieve your Hotmail messages! Note: Under Windows NT/2000/XP, Hotmail Popper needs to be run with Administrative Privileges, so that it is allowed to bind to the standard POP portWhat's New in This Release:· Added an Opera compatibility mode option to get around a bug in Opera· Added the ability to run Hotmail Popper hidden, by using the /hideicon command-line argument· Added the X-Hotpop-Folder MIME header to every message to indicate what Hotmail folder it originated from.
