I've been wanting an all around email app that would pick up all mail including yahoo and hotmail. Also, I want it to be able to reply without launching a huge email client. E-Prompter did the trick until hotmail changed it's log-on.

This app (minotaur)is on par, memory useage wise, with Incredimail - which is a large resource hog.

That's what I use, since keeping the spam bombers under control is chore #1. Hotmail is useless, IMO, except that one needs it for certain M$ stuff, like free e-books and music. No, with that version of Mailwasher you can't reply, only read the mail. But, to reply you can use OE, FoxMail or Incredimail. MozMail, Minotaur or any POP mail client will work when coupled with Hotmail Popper. And, the ePrompter guy promises fully updated Hotmail support in a few months.

Try a program called Pop Peeper(freeware). I can still retrieve both Hotmail (even after the format change) and Yahoo's Mail as well.
