    To use the program simply run the PopWatch executable and it will minimise to the tray notification area. Right mouse clicking on the icon will display a menu with three menu items on it. The options are About, Settings & Exit. The "About" option will display a simple about dialog. Settings will bring up a tabbed dialog which allows the program to be configured. The Exit option simply closes the application. The options on the Settings dialog are:


    POP3 Server: This is the address of the mail server to check. This will normally be of the form

    Username: This is the name of the account you have on the mail server.

    Password: This is the password for the mail account.

    Check Server every: This option allows you to modify the interval to use to check your mailbox.

    Only Check Server when modem is connected: Checking this option means that the POP3 mailbox will only be checked when a Dial-Up Networking connection is active.


    When the server is checked, the icon in the tray notification area will be changed to indicate if there is some mail in your mailbox. The tooltip associated with the icon will also be changed to indicate the number of emails waiting and the total size in Kilobytes of all the emails.
