Guide Review - Molly Mail

If your mail is on a POP (or, better even, IMAP) server, you can access it from virtually everywhere with a Web-based email client like the great Molly Mail. It supports POP and IMAP, and secure TLS/SSL connections, too.

Molly Mail even guesses the right way to connect to your account and almost always gets it right. You can read, write and reply to mail just like in a web-based email account.

Molly Mail also can synchronize POP accounts with what you see in your Molly Mail mailbox (after deleting messages), offers a simple address book and calendar, supports attachments (letting you view Word documents inline), lets you filter your messages, and a more.

Unfortunately, Molly Mail lacks support for secure encrypted and signed mail.
