Knoware, a Macintosh Internet provider in the Netherlands, has created a prototype of a simple POP (Post Office Protocol) client for the Newton, according to Merik Voswinkel of Knoware. Although Apple’s NewtonMail has access to the Internet, many Newton users want direct access to their Internet email, which is often accessible via a POP server running on a Unix host. Although Knoware isn’t yet sure if they will complete their Newton POP client, they stated that if not, they would release it to the net for someone else to finish. Steve Dorner has said that he isn’t working on a Newton version of the popular Eudora, a POP and SMTP (Simple Mail Transport Protocol – for sending email) client for the Mac.
