I work in different locations day on day. I am looking to access my POP3 email accounts from work, however, Outlook (and Express) take too long setting up accounts and as it's on a network I have to set it up on all the machines I use (don't ask why. Profiles are just an option and it has to be this way because it's an RM network.). Is there a quick, simple, easy to install and most importantly FREE solution to this.
I don't mind a bit of ASP coding if I can do it through my website.
I've been using something called "Ultrafunk Popcorn". It's a little freeware app that lets you read and reply to POP mail on the server. It's perfect for traveling, because there's no install and it fits on a floppy. They say you can run it right off a CD-ROM, but I haven't tried that yet. I use it a lot to screen my mailboxes before I download my mail, especially if I haven't cleared out my mailboxes in a while. No affiliation!
I use a web based client. It's free, can access multiple pop accounts, leave messages on server, or not, and includes a free email address of its own. I won't post a link, but stickymail me if you want it.
