Does anybody know of a good inexpensive pop3 collection tool for Exchange 2000.
Currently using the latest version of Mailgates PopWeal. However, a number of spammers are sending emails that drop the connection and I have to delete them by hand via web-mail. This happen every couple of months but now practically every day. I know there was a free Microsoft Pop3 tool but it never seemed to work at all and there were very few options with it.
Many thanks

I've used IGetMail before. It is pretty easy to configure and worked well for me

popbeamer is widely used and seems to be fairly reliable

The fault tolerance feature in “Igetmail” looks like just the thing that is needed. However, I can not find any real world examples of anyone using it with this feature. But I guess that’s up to me to test with the demo version.
Apologies to Mailgate thier Product was called Pop Weasel. Although my client has been calling it Pop Wilt.

Unfortunatly I still have not had a chance to check the product but it looks like it should do the job.
Thanks again
