Four years ago, we wrote the first version of QuickDelete. We wanted the software to be capable of deleting e-mail messages from a POP3 server, without downloading them in advance.
There was a great need for this kind of software, since it was very difficult to delete large or damaged e-mails from the server without calling the ISP's support.
Technically it was always possible to delete e-mails; one only had to establish a telnet connection to the POP3 server and using standard POP3 commands one could delete any e-mail.
Even to day this procedure still requires basic knowledge of the POP3 protocol and terminal software. We programmed QuickDelete 1.0 to give an average Internet user the possibility to delete e-mails from a POP3 server.
Here are some key features of "QuickDelete":
￭ resizable windows
￭ free filter definition
￭ sortable e-mail list
￭ a new log file
￭ optional visible or invisible e-mail header
￭ removal of errors (bug fix)
￭ new layout / new images
￭ check for updates (port 80)
