Magic Mail Monitor Portable 2.94 Development Test 1 (Testers Needed)

Name: Magic Mail Monitor - Web Site

Category: Internet

About:

Magic Mail Monitor is a utility to connect to POP3 enabled e-mail account and download only e-mail headers (and optionally a preview). Some people on a slow internet connection mind find this utility handy if you have a slow internet connection, or prefer to used webmail instead of a full-out e-mail client.

Download:

Download Magic Mail Monitor Portable 2.94 Development Test 1

Notes:

I will be looking into possibilities for portablizing something like FreePOPs so you can use Magic Mail Monitor Portable to connect to services like Gmail and Hotmail, too.

No issues here.

I love this app. I have been using this app for over 5 years, since before it became open source.

Works as expected.

PS

PS i like mailwasher better. it does what i need this program to do. even the limited free version i think is more user-frendly. pitty they do not do a free portable version.

Works fine ......

Works fine .... Smile
I have installed the translation into German, what works well too.

I am not sure, if that is an useful application for me .... why should I use MagicMailMonitor when I can use Thunderbird ?

But I agree, the slow-internet-connection argument is pretty valid Smile
And: It's not possible for me to recieve emails with Thunderbird in my office (where I am working behind a proxy) Sad
Next week I can test MagicMailMonitor in my office, I am really curious about that .... Wink

Suggestion for Mail Monitor

I like the ability of Magic Mail Monitor to download only the headers and a preview.
There is a commercial program I use at home called Mailwasher. It does somewhat the same as MMM but also downloads the senders E-mail address. Then you can select mails to be deleted and/or bounced (real handy to get you off Spam lists). The program goes up to your E-mail source and deletes or bounces the mails you have marked, letting you then load up your regular E-mail program (say Thunderbird) and retrieve the mail you actually want to read.
Could MMM be expanded to allow you to tag E-mails for deletion/bouncing? This would be really useful in filtering your E-mail.
Just a suggestion.

Suggest it in the MMM forums

Suggest it in the MMM forums then. It's a good idea, but Patrick just made the portable version.

Have you tried it with MMM?

ReneL, welcome back.

ReneL, welcome back. Haven't seen you around these forums in a LONG time.

As for Gmail and POP3 access, I personally couldnt get MMM to work with it, maybe I just needed a bit more time tinkering though, i'll test again tonight.

There is something you have to do first...

In gmail settings you have to enable it. I'll try mine as a test.

try this

Have you looked in the help file. it says to use a program called freepopsd i downloaded it and it works fine. i just have not been able to get MMM to keep my account settings. it sux as i cannot remember them. i found a fix off the net somewhere i looked up gmail pop3 settings from the program website i think. gave me the account settings for MMM and gmail worked but when i logged in again today the acccount was not there and i cant remember the settings. will have to wait till i get home again to find the site exactly.

Flashing menubar

The menubar across the middle of the programs flashes, I have no idea why, very distracting. Any ideas???

using a new basic laptop Vista Home Basic 1GB memory.
All my other Portable apps are fine and I tried a fresh download.

Yours, Roger

i aggree

vista was supposed to be free of bugs before it came out. Microsoft said that which was not really true.

linux is a better system but i cant seem to work out how to run programs with it. you seem to need to know the programming language for it to do anything but the basics. how frustrating.

xp is ok but it does also have the added flaw of auto updating people (like me) just inocently download the updates as most of the one suggested use numbers for title which gives you know indication what they are really for. and now my comp has all that junk on it and that can and does make it perform differently. like slower and all.

but Xp is still user frendly and i like using it.

Works well, leaves nothing

Works well, leaves nothing behind of any consequence, but it leaves stuff in

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\.magic
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\Magic.Document

those aren't a big deal and probably can't be handled though.

Yea

I'll add in code to handle them if there is admin rights. I'll also talk to the devs about not automaticially associating the extension.

keys in

keys in HKLM\Software\Classes\ cannot be handled unless the user has admin privileges, they're just file associations, nothing big.

The only person that has

The only person that has access to the digital signature for all official packages is away for a few days, and now that the PortableApps.com Format specifications are released, the package needs some minor updates.

Yes, i think...

Yes, i think this is what i am looking for. i use mailwasher free at home i use Gmail as my pop3 server where all my mail goes in then send it to mailwasher & thunderbird. if MMM is useful i will be happy and use that thru my flash drive.

now Where is the download.....???
better go look for it.

will be in touch.

Updates

Do let us know when this program develops and all. i am doing the slow download om my 56k dialup connection now. this sounds like a real good deal. was having real trouble finding a opensourse program like this. Mailwasher makes you pay fro their portable version on a licence like most you need to pay renew it once in a whilw and that just costs $$$
THanks for getting down to it and working to better the MMM program.

Language files

Can you include the available language files in the next test release? That would make it easier for MMM users to change the program to their own language. Thanks in advance!

Release

I have been using this every business day since it was ported to portable apps. I am not sure why it is still in beta ... how do we move this forward to a release app?

Program Works Then "Quits"

Strange problem...Mail Monitor starts up, lets me develop a new "mailbox" then, when I tell it to get the mail I can see it go out develop the list and then it "crashes" and just disappears.
If I open it back up, the mailbox I created is not there and I have to try all over again.
I am running this on a XP60 Thinkpad Laptop running Windows XP with SP3.
Very strange since, from the earlier comments, folks are not experiencing this issue.

"Chapter 2"
Tried it at home Pentium 4 3.5 GHz WinXP with SP3 and it works fine. Only thing I can think of is that something with our corporate Firewall trips the program. Otherwise it works fine didn't leave any fingerprints in the Registry or tmp/bak files.
I would say that its ready to "go commercial."
