Hi all. Is anyone familiar with this neat little program? Here's a

description of it:

Email Remover can save you the trouble of downloading unwanted email.

It connects to your ISP and retrieves mail header information (sender,

subject, date, etc.), letting you pick mail you don't want to receive

and deleting it from the mail server. It will optionally run your

regular email client when it's done so that you can transfer and read

the mail you do want. Email Remover is a handy little spam blocker in

the never-ending battle against spam -- and it's free!.

I really love using it, but lately I've been having problems with it

and was wondering if there's a fix. It'll download all the email

headers OK, and I can choose which ones I want to delete. But when I

answer "yes" to the ones I've chosen, it returns an error message

"Cannot delete Mail (2, 4, etc.). Socket not connected."

I can randomly choose to delete 2 or 3, but then I have to start all

over again to get 3 or 4 more until I finally get them all. My neighbor

uses the same prog. on her Win 7 machine and her's is doing the same

thing. Could it have something to do with our email server as we both

have the same company for internet service? (Frontier.com) Just a

thought.

I know there are later versions available, but they all behave the same

way,. Thanks in advance for help with getting this dandy little prog.

to behave again. If any other info is needed, just let me know.

Can't help you with your program, but can suggest an ancient alternative, (vintage 2000)  which I have used for many years, a very small file (226 KB) which I currently run on Windows XP Home, Win 7 HP and Win 8 Pro.
 
E-Res-Q    Simple, portable POP3 client, doesn't require installation, enables you to selectively read and delete messages without having to download them all. Option to 'Get Headers' if you wish.
 
 
Worth a look, if no solutions are suggested for your problem.

Hey, great Pete!  This baby will work for me, although it doesn't have the ability to open OE6 within the prog.  No biggie tho--an extra click to open OE6 won't wear out the old clicker finger.  Thanks so much.  I'll use this awhile until someone hopefully comes up with "Socket not connected" fix.

 

Thanks again!

Forgot to tell u Pete.  Yeah, the newer versions of Email Remover behave the same way as v2.4, but I'm back in business with EResQ.  You're a gentleman and and a scholar.

I'm going to download Email Remover 5.88 as it handles multiple accounts, which E-Res-Q doesn't.

You might do well to check out the new version.

Cheers.

 

Sorry, cross-posted - thanks for info.
