MacFreePOPs, a plugin that allows Mail.app users to access email from web-based services like Yahoo, Hotmail, AOL (and many, many more) has been updated.
It’s now compatible with Leopard, and includes a fully universal version (0.2.5) of the FreePOPS engine.
Running the app launches a freepopsd server which translates local POP3 requests into HTTP actions that web-based services can understand, “fooling” webmail interfaces into coughing up your email for Mail.app.
It supports an astonishing range of webmail services, including Hotmail, Lycos, SqirrelMail, Yahoo, mailcom and several hundred that I have never heard of.
MacFreePOPs is donation-ware and is available from the developer’s web site .
