Popcorn is a lightweight e-mail client for Windows 9x/ME/NT/2000/XP/2003.


  • Works as a client/server application, reading mail "directly" from POP servers, including those that require APOP MD5 secure authentication.
  • Ideally suited for "on the road" mail access, for scanning, reading and sending mail over slow connections.
  • Supports multiple account profiles, enabling you to read and send mail from any number of accounts.
  • Requires no installation, no data is saved locally other than a portable .INI file containing account information.
  • Ideal for cleaning up POP accounts, removing spam, unwanted mail, large attachments etc...
  • Immune to all forms of e-mail attachment and HTML viruses/scripts/trojans, because it does not directly support receiving attachments or viewing HTML.
  • Optionally supports viewing/saving attachments and HTML through external applications.
  • The built-in mail editor and address book enables you to compose and send new mail with or without file attachments, reply to, forward and re-direct received mail using SMTP or (E)SMTP with authentication.
  • Fits easily on a floppy or other portable (even read only) media, making it easy to carry around at all times.
  • Using the Mail Message (.eml) format, you can easily import mail items composed, saved or sent from Popcorn into other popular e-mail clients.

What's new:

  • Fixed an issue introduced in release 1.99 that caused mail sending to fail if the SMTP server supported the CRAM-MD5 authentication method.
