Software Update: POP Peeper

Mortal Universe Software Entertainment has released version of POP Peeper. This program notifies you when there are new e-mail messages. There is support for both pop3 and imap, as well as a wide range of web-based services, including Gmail, MSN, Yahoo,, MyWay, Excite, Lycos, and RediffMail. POP Peeper only shows the headers, making it easy to delete unimportant emails before they are retrieved by an email program.
