help wanted Testing
Came across this recently. It is an e-mail client that allows e-mails to be viewed without being downloaded, thus avoiding malicious script, attachments and the like. I have only tried it out briefly, as it also has other uses as a portable reader. If the board would be interested, perhaps others would like to check it out and report back. It's freeware.

Writer's Synopsis :
What is Popcorn?
Popcorn is a freeware ultra-lightweight POP3/SMTP e-mail client, free from unwanted and useless bloatware features. Being a true client/server application, it does not work in the same way as a typical mail program.
<font color=448800>This means that you're reading mail from a POP3 server directly, without downloading it to a local mailbox on your PC </font color=448800>(although you can save mail messages locally if you want to). This makes it ideally suited for "on the road" mail access, and for scanning, reading and sending mail over
slow internet connections.
Popcorn supports multiple user profiles, enabling you to read and send mail from any number of different POP3 accounts. It is a small, portable e-mail client, the kind you can carry with you on a floppy disk or download quickly from the web without having to go through any installation procedures.
The user profiles and account information is NOT saved in the local registry, but in a small, portable .INI-file that accompanies the application, enabling you to easily move between locations.
Using Popcorn you can check and send mail from anywhere as long as you have an Internet connection. You can also delete spam, old messages or see if a message has attachments without downloading the messages from the server first. It is perfect for cleaning up and administering multiple POP3 accounts.</font color=d2691e>
