Projects / Poppy


Poppy is a small Perl script that will individually retrieve only the headers of mail messages from a POP3/IMAP server and then allow you to view, save, or delete each. This is especially good for systems with limited resources like limited disk space, slow connectivity, or no GUI. It is also good for managing your mailbox when your normal mail reader is setup not to delete mail off the server or is having problems downloading large emails.

            This is an excelent tool to test if an account is working or not. Besides, it is often very nice to be able to check an account without having to download the messages.
            A great prog!

            As a diagnostic tool, Poppy Rocks!
            As a new email admin charged with keeping up a 3000+ user pop mail server, poppy is a wonderful tool for proving that a user's account is not misconfigured.
