nPOPw was created as a Pocket PC specifc version of nPOP but I found that I wanted a few more features so I added them. nPOPw is based on nPOP 1.0.1 from http://www.nakka.com/.

As with nPOP, nPOPw is also Freeware.

nPOPw allows you to access e-mail on a POP3 mail server on your Pocket PC. It provides the function of common remote e-mail access.



The extensions include: Added Support for read and delivery receipts.
Added support for mail priorities (High, Normal and Low).
Added file safety mechanism to prevent data loss when device fails or is softreset occurs.
Added option to use the Pocket Outlook Contacts list instead of the nPOP addressbook.
Added Save All option to commit changes to the File System without exiting.
Added HTML option in the INI file for Externally viewing HTML mail in Pocket IE.

Ahhh, what could be better than nPOP, I asked myself? Why, nPOPw of course... :D

Outlook contacts integration is the key thing. Well done, and thanks.

Yup, this is better. Just gave it a whirl; Bit of a chore getting the new one set up without losing my settings. Seems that to avoid having to configure from scratch one must copy in all the old files except the EXE before launching. I tried leaving out the INI, thinking from the above that the newly generated INI might be required for some functions. Not so, as all the new features are available when using the previous configuration file.

I'm not sure what good it does to have priority displayed with incoming mail, as at least half of my spam is now showing red exclamation marks and none of several legit emails has any such marking. I'd expect that this is familiar to many PC Outlook users, but perhaps I'm mistaken; haven't used mail on a PC in a long while except for a brief test of nPOP there. So using the new priority drop-down box when sending new mail or replies seems a lot useless, as priority is being applied willy-nilly by spammers. They've stolen the utility of this type of marking.

My Outlook addressbook seems to be written on launching nPOP, as nPOPw takes a few extra seconds to open compared to version 1.01. Or so it seems to me.

Overall, I like it. Very nice work.
