Unfortunately Microsoft decided to dump the POP mail account access. That said, a POP work-around like Skycap is needed fro all the old POP accounts. However, Skycap fails to deliver. Most of the time it will not receive emails at all, when it does it is complete surprise. If it can't do the basic object of the idea there is a problem...I'd look somewhere else for a POP work-around.

THIS THING IS awesome. for those of us who are new computer owner. New computer has Windows 8. Windows 8 won't relate to a pop3 account. Skycap solves all the problems at once. So easy to install. And bam; it was working. I was getting all my email!! So cool!!!

Skycap Works

Finally, a reasonable email client for Surface! Works great with Gmail, POP, SSL, TLS, etc. accounts..a little slow, but first time success on setup..

Just what I was looking for!

Finally, an email client that works on my pc and tablet. I can add both my Hotmail and Gmail accounts. Works great! Slick! Easy to use and does what it says it can do. Happy with my purchase! Well worth the price!

good email application

Just downloaded and set up the "trial" version of this application. Very easy to set up "pop" accounts. I am still looking for an email program that will allow me more customization options, such as setting up "junk" controls, etc. Good start....hope you continue to improve with additional options and I will be glad to pay for your product ;)

Try to add account. Get to password for outgoing mail, but no way to store after entering password. Just stuck there. Made the mistake of paying before trying, so out $4.99.

App works great and great support.

App works great! When I first purchased the app, the app would not download my Go Daddy pop3 mail . I contacted CodeLogic and had a response within 2 hours and subsequently resolved the issue. Kudos to CodeLogic for resolving issue and the great support. I am getting both my GMAIL and POP3 mail in one tool.

Surface RT email client WINNER for me!

Loaded my POP accounts, no hassle. Noticed it treats POP messages as unread on first download. Have a Gmail IMAP account and loaded that as well. All my email accounts are centralised. App does have couple of bugs and quirks, but overall it's really good. Looking forward to future revisions. Keep up the good work!

Emails disappear

For no apparent reason, my email box empties and all my emails are gone and I know of no way to retrieve them.

Version notes

In this release we made the following improvements: 1] Enhanced automatic email account discovery, for a higher success rate. Manual account configuration has also been enhanced. 2] Added preset mail account options for Outlook, Zoho, Gmx and Mail.com email service providers. We also fixed the following bugs: 1] Fixed the bug for IMAP accounts where only the Inbox folder was loaded. 2] Fixed the bug for IMAP/POP accounts where configured accounts would show a constant Busy ring, but nothing was happening. 3] Fixed the bug for POP accounts that had issues with manual configuration. 4] Fixed the bug where if a Dialog (Add/Remove/Delete Mailbox or Add Mail Account Dialog) is open and an email was selected in the background, it would cover part of the dialog. 5] Fixed a number of minor bugs on the Compose New Mail screen. 6] Fixed some general UI inconsistencies, colour, layout, etc.
