MailMaint for Windows is a simple POP3 Mailbox Maintenance application that supports multiple POP3 mailboxes, allowing headers to be accessed, messages to be read and deleted, and new email and replies to be sent. Old headers are stored on the PC to minimise access time, but this application is not designed as an offline mail reader. Whole messages can be relayed to another mailbox, chosen from an address book. MailMaint also includes basic spam detection filtering and deletion, with user designed filers.
MailMaint's main purpose is deleting messages that have become stuck in the POP3 mailbox and are not being properly deleted by your normal email application. This typically happens when the mail headers are corrupted or deliberately wrong (very common with spam email). But MailMaint will also be very useful for those that need to access multiple mailboxes.
While MailMaint is normally installed under Windows with all the settings kept in the system registry, it is may also be run from a floppy disk, with all server settings and preferences saved on the floppy. This will be useful for people that travel a lot and need to access POP3 mail in a better manner than a web interface.
MailMaint is shareware, developed by Magenta Systems Ltd, in the UK, and supports 32-bit and 64-bit versions Windows 2000 and later. Until registered, it is only possible to access two POP3 servers, and it's not possible to send or reply to email. The unregistered copy still allows mail to be viewed and deleted, similarly to earlier releases. Registration costs £15 (UKP, including VAT), which is about US$25, with discounts for site licenses.
