    I use juno, and they finally got greedy. I won't be able to use their client software (works a lot like outlook) to get my mail and view it offline anymore, come december. They are forcing all users who don't pay them to get their mail online using a browser. I assume to make advertising more effective.

    I'd like to avoid using outlook to download my mail, mostly because of the vulnerabilities, viruses written for it, and the fact its a M$ product. Are there any other mail reader programs, or other services that use a client program out there capable of collecting pop mail?

    Gmail, no. They dont support it...yet. I think you can check hotmail via pop, and possibly Yahoo, but I think you have to pay for the special service. I Dont know, I only use gmail.

    But, for regular pop email, Thunderbird is great.
