FileMaker Pro Developer’s Conference, Orlando, FL, Aug. 13, 2001 —
Comm-Unity Networking Systems announces the release of POP3it 3.0, for
FileMaker Pro 4.x and 5.x for Macintosh OS 9, Macintosh OS X, and Windows

POP3it is a very flexible FileMaker plug-in that allows you to receive
email directly into FileMaker without the aid of any helper applications.
To use it, all you will need is an email account, a POP3 server, and
FileMaker Pro 4.x or 5.x.

You can easily integrate POP3it into your existing solutions. A basic
knowledge of FileMaker Scripting is needed, however, the documentation for
POP3it covers how to use the POP3it plug-in.

Jesse Traynham, company owner, states that “We are pleased to announce
POP3it 3.0 This version adds support for the OS X version of FileMaker Pro
5.5, as well as adds support for downloading Japanese and Central and
Eastern European characters into your localized databases.”

Possible Uses of POP3it

Because POP3it allows you to specify in your scripts what email host and
email account to check, you can easily check multiple accounts. Together
with SMTPit, you can make an entire email solution with only FileMaker and
make use of FileMaker’s database features like sorting and searching.
