I DO NOT USE ANY SOFTWARE ON THIS PAGE. These pages are for freeware suggestions site visitors have made for which I, personally, have no need and no interest. I can’t (and don’t) vouch for anything here.

  If you don’t find what you need here, I recommend Pricelessware, a very sound, clean freeware site based on recommendations of alt.comp.freeware participants.  

Added 1/2/05
For 9x/NT/2K/XP. “Logs in and retrives email for multiple accounts from one interface. Auto updates.” By Tiburon Technology, Inc. (Recommended by Linda Shaner)
Mr. E.’s Note: Does not currently support IMAP4. The Web site says they hope to have this feature soon.
Mozilla Thunderbird
Added 1/2/05
For 98/ME/NT/NT/2K/XP. “Mozilla Thunderbird is a freeware email client compliments of the thousands of Mozilla users and programmers. Stops junk mail with smart filters. Sort mail, POP or HTML mail, added security, tons of extensions.” By The Mozilla Organization. (Recommended by Jeff Schultz)
Mr. E.’s Note: Also supports IMAP4, according to the Web site.
Added 11/30/03
For OE 5.0 & later. “Outlook Express is a good mail and newgroup reader program, but it’s not easy to make backups. Enter OEBackup. It will allow you to manage Outlook Express message stores and registry entries, plus more. It’s not pretty, but it’s easy to use and makes backing up OE so much easier.” By Majik (MS-MVP David Guess). (Recommended by MS-MVP Manny Carvalho)
Added 11/30/03
For 9x/NT/2K/XP (for OE 5.0 or later). “This is a small application (600 KB download) that adds spell checking abilities to Outlook Express for those that do not have MS Office installed.” By Vampirefo. (Recommended by MS-MVP James M. Fisher)
Popcorn E-Mail Client
Added 7/4/03
For 9x/NT/2K/XP. “Popcorn is tiny e-mail checker/client. It lets you to monitor multiple POP3 accounts (at any intervals he wishes) and erase unwanted messages at the server (without downloading them). Read, Reply, and Write functions are included. Though Popcorn doesn’t have a separate address book, each time the user sends a message the address is added to the INI file. Though there are other freeware programs like this; none other has so many functions or none fits on (and can be run from) a floppy disk. Invaluable.” By Ultrafunk Products. (Recommended by Tom Topor)
Safe Express Free
Added 7/18/04
For 9x/NT/2K/XP/2003. Email & encryption client. “Powerful, highly configurable, easy-to-use email client, public key email encryption client (automatically encrypts your emails), and anti-spam client (automatically classifies incoming emails as spam or non-spam). Protects from viruses and worms that spread via email. User-friendly interface. Supports unlimited number of accounts and users. You won’t need to use any more secret passwords, or have to do any additional operations to make your email secure. Supports drag-and-drop attachments; e.g. between an email and the desktop.” By Safe Soft Corporation. (Recommended by Alexandr Benson of SafeWorld)
Mr. E.’s Note: Currently, the “Sponsored mode” is the freeware version. It includes an ad and one sponsored toolbar link. Upgrades are free.
Added 12/28/03
For Outlook 2000/XP/03. “SpamBayes is based on Bayesian Filtering research by Paul Graham. This builds a profile of an individual’s real email vs. junk mail to filter it with a higher success rate than previous anti-spam methods. Better than 99% spam detection and less than 1% false positive rates are promised. The program learns, as it processes more good e-mail vs. spam, how the two differ, by building a database of the probability of occurrence of each component of the message. SpamBayes has an Outlook plugin, which is very easy to configure and appears to work very well. Other Windows-based email programs [including Outlook Express] require more work to configure. Bayesian-based programs are in early stages. I believe this is the beginning of the end of spam.” By SourceForge. (Recommended by Shane Beatson)
Added 12/26/02
For 9x/NT/2K/XP. “Tired of endless spam? So was I. Discovered SpamPal and basically all the spam now ends up in a newly created “spamtrap” folder. Now all I need to do is read the emails from friends and associates.” By James Farmer. (Recommended by Lee Suffridge)
Added 10/3/04
For 9x/2K/XP. “StripMail strips the characters “>” and “|” from forwarded emails. Formats the text into paragraphs, making it easier to read. Changes the text’s right margin, by indenting. Can be used with any email client.” By Datasoft Ltd.. (Recommended by Tahir Belenli)
Mr. E.’s Note: MS-MVP Robear Dyer recommends a comparison with the similar product emailSTRIPPER.
