Finder Mail 0.5a
The aim of Finder Mail is to provide a clean, perfect and efficient interface for POP3 mailboxes. Rather than packing all the functionality of a mail client into one large application, Finder Mail splits common components into small individual applications. These are quick to load and dont interfere with the each other. Furthermore, Finder Mail uses your Macintosh's standard Finder interface to file all your emails. When you receive an email using Finder Mail, it is saved as a text file in a specified directory. Double-clicking on an email opens the email in the Finder Mail Editor, where you can read and reply to it as usual. You can choose to file your emails in any way that you like - they're just regular text files. Create your own Finder folder hierarchy if you like, or archive emails into Stuffit .sit files, or back them up onto an ZIP drive.

History updates (Complete changelogs since the listing on this site)
-The "Leave Mail on Server" option now only downloads new emails (it doesn't re-download any previously downloaded emais unless the option for that account is unchecked) Note: When you turn the option off, all emails previously left on the server will be downloaded again!
-Send and Receive now spools emails to disk to help when receiving large attachments. -Receiving large emails should not be a problem any more. It is very quick. The only problems encountered may be because Send and Receive has run out of memory, in which case please allocate it more memory in the Get Info dialog box.
-The Editor now has preferences! You can configure the font and size of your emails, whether to have automatic hyperlinks (remember, you can still use the cmd-click MacOS URL trick!), and you can also set up a default window size for all email windows (this is great for people with unusual monitors, either low or high resolution).
-Find-A-Mail! Hitting cmd-F in the Editor now brings up a search dialog. This searches for a term in all your emails. So long as you keep emails in your specified mailboxes, then this tool will help you find an email quickly. It's really great. And it's got a funny name. Find-A-Mail, geddit?
-Automated backup: Emails being composed are automatically backed up every 15 seconds. Should your Mac crash, these emails will be restored upon re-launching the Editor.
If you quit the Editor, emails that are in the middle of being written are invisibly saved and will pop open again when you relaunch the editor. That means you can quit/restart without having to go back to the Outbox to open your postponed mail items. This is a really cool feature when you give it a go.
-Attachments are now not shown as their text source, instead the attachment filename shows up in the Part menu (which is now smaller and neater) and when selected, a hyperlink allows you to decode that particular attachment. At this stage, MIME/Base64 is the only encoding scheme supported. You can use a third party utility such as Stuffit Expander to decode other attachment encodings.
The unclip button has been removed
it is now unnecessary. Problematic attachments should still be decoded by dragging the email onto a 3rd party utility such as Stuffit Expander.
-The Editor now encodes special characters into Quoted-Printable ISO-8859-1, and can understand emails sent in either Quoted-Printable or 8bit ISO-8859-1. There may still be a few bugs in this encoding system. Please report your findings.
-A new setting in the Editor Preferences allows plain-text emails to be coloured. Currently, quoted text and proper signatures are shown in shades of grey to make reading emails easier.
-Fixed a bug in the hyperlinking code when viewing HTML emails (links are now properly positioned).
-The To: and From: fields in printed emails are not the wrong way round any more.
-Send and Receive has been made to look more like the Finder's file-copying dialog.
-Fixed a subtle bug in the control panel that would cause one account's settings to be mixed up with another's when adding or deleteing accounts. The same bug was causing the control panel to occasionally crash with a NilObjectException.
-Send and Receive now understands more email timestamp formats. This should help reduce the number of "Couldn't parse the email date" errors people have been getting.
-Better new mail alert sounds: The control panel now allows you to choose any sound from your system suitcase (each account has its own sound), and Send and Receive no longer truncates the end of new mail sounds.
The address book now looks neater, and is easier to understand.
-Changing the account you send an email from is now done with a popup menu, rather than the < and > buttons.
-Fixed a bug in Send and Receive. If the first account was not to be checked, the app would not do anything.
If you move or delete an email that you are currently reading, Finder Mail will close that email's window. (just like the Finder's handling of files and folders)
-Cosmetic changes made to buttons in Editor.
-Fixed bug that was causing wrapped header lines to be appended to the To: or CC: fields in the Editor.
