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)
