Program to read POP3 mails WITHOUT marking them READ
« on: October 17, 2007, 09:15:50 AM »
Hi,

I need to read my company email (exchange, pop3 enabled) without marking emails as READ. This is because I hate to use outlook and to find already read emails.

I know it's Microsoft Exchange that marks them read when a program issues the RETR pop3 command. But I also know that if the program fetches the emails with the TOP pop3 command, the emails remain unread.

Do you know if there is a software that let me peek in my mailbox using this (or equivalent) technique ?

Thanks,

/Stef

It works perfectly!! It issues "TOP n 1000" instead of "RETR n", so it does exactly what I was searching for.

Thanks a lot !
