Guide Review - eNetBot Mail 2.2 - AOL POP Email Access Tool

AOL's email component is easy to use, but it is also quite restrictive and lacks in features. Other email programs would be a much better choice, but, alas, they don't work with AOL.

With eNetBot Mail, they do. eNetBot Mail acts as a proxy server between AOL's proprietary system and any POP email client.

eNetBot Mail is a clean, transparent, and reliable solution, and it allows you to choose your favorite email program flexibly. You can even access your mail from another computer and OS.

Unfortunately, eNetBot Mail doesn't allow any access restrictions for incoming connections. And an IMAP interface to the AOL mail system would be interesting, too.

In a typical usage situation this doesn't matter, however, and eNetBot Mail works almost perfectly.
