We get so much spam these days that you often do not have the time to download your email before you start work. If anyone has used Microsoft Outlook, they'll tell you it can be very resource-heavy. Often you have to wait for the process of downloading and sorting your email to finish, before you can do some serious work. Particularly CPU intensive work. For this reason, it's it could be more useful to use a lightweight email notify application to inform you when important email arrives, then you could go online and read with your webmail service.
Poppy 5.8.3 is a small email nofication tool that resides in your System tray and will let you check more than one of your email accounts. When email arrives, it will inform. This tool could also be useful if you're working with another machine and you don't want to download your email to this machine, but do want to be notified when incoming email arrives.
