Web2POP lets you check web-based email accounts with your POP3 client

Web2POP costs about $20 and supports just a whole bunch of webmail accounts including Hotmail, Yahoo, Netscape.net, MSN, AOL, OneBox and Excite. it acts as a POP3 proxy — you point your email client at Web2POP (localhost,, using the standarde, but modifiable, POP3 port of 110) and during the login process Web2POP will log in to your webmail account, retrieve your email and pass it back to your POP3 client. It won’t send mail but there’s gotta be an SMTP proxy for that, too, doesn’t there? 🙂
