PagePlanet Software has announced PagePOP3, a Web-based POP email client using Modular Gateway Interface (MGI) Version 2. (MGI is a plug-in to WebSTAR and IIS that allows Web site developers to integrate over 100 functions.)
PagePOP3 is designed for checking e-mail remotely from home, during trips, or at public terminals. And your e-mail is always safe, even if you forget to logout, with PagePOP3's automatic timeout feature, according to PagePlanet spokesperson Valerie Crisp.
PagePOP3 works with multiple e-mails accounts. Each user has separate, secure access to their e-mail and password-protected control over account preferences such as a custom signature. You can manage your e-mail by saving emails you've sent and received or drafts of new e-mails in separate folders. All e-mails are searchable by folder, subject, sender and/or date so you can locate the email you need. You can also use the app to add contacts to your address book.
Through the end of the month, PagePlanet is offering one free license of PagePOP3 with each purchase of MGI Commerce, which sells for US$299. If you already own MGI, you can buy PagePOP3 for $25 per domain. You have unlimited use of PagePOP3 under any one domain including multiple POP accounts, Crisp said.
MGI and PagePOP3 may be purchased and downloaded online. An online demo is also available. According to MacTech magazine to use PagePOP3, you must have an MGI Domain and/or Region set up with access to use the Essentials, Programming, Network, File IO, Plus and Database modules of MGI version 2.x. The ".mgi" suffix on your Web server must be mapped to MGI2 (PagePlanet may offer the solution with the ".mgi2" suffix in the future). Your POP account must be configured with permissions to leave mail on the e-mail server if you choose that option in the PagePOP3 account preferences.
