Just before Christmas the team FreePOPs has not stopped working and has "given" a new version of 0.2.9 FreePOPs come to the very useful program that lets you download your mail on your mail client (Mail, Thunderbird, Outlook) and -mail also services that do not allow you to use your POP3 server unless you use their internet.
Examples are ecclatanti Free, Hotmail, Alice, Inwind, Virgil and many other mail services ... in my opinion, of dubious quality (especially the junk mail that is not filtered properly), especially when compared with services like gMail or AOL .
This version has made significant improvements "under the hood" just looking in the direction of Leopard, our beloved system of Apple.
From here you can visit the official website of the project FreeePOPs .
From here , however, you can access the complete guide to email setup on Mac with FreePOPs (and using FMU ).
Many already know FreePOPs, software that allows you to download mail from providers like Alice, Free, Tin and others, which do not allow you to use POP3 less connect with their ADSL line and from the most popular email providers such as Hotmail, Live, Yahoo, which does not allow its Free to download via POP3 without a paid subscription (read this article if you're interested in understanding how to set up Mail with FreePOPs).
FreePOPs can "bypass" the problem, but sometimes it happens that no longer function receiving mail, because they have been making changes ... and then you need to update the famous .lua! It is a manual process very simply to tell the truth, but many users find themselves in trouble about where to find these files and where to place them correctly.
Hence FreePOPs Mac Updater, a simple application that automates the entire process of downloading and updating all the plugins (.lua)!
The operation is basic: double-click the icon and FMU will do the rest completely automatically!
Now all users in the world of apple (Mac-User) will not have any problem to update the "famous" .lua.
Video: You can download here a demo video (High Quality) of how to set up an account (in this example, Hotmail) in 4 minutes with FMU.
