general rymo history

  • During 1999, Florian started working on a webmail-application called POP3-Checker.
  • In January 2001, Lol was in search of such tool. After he tried some tools, he stopped by Florian's work. Lol then fixed a bug and sent patch to Florian.
  • After some emails exchange, we decided to continue development of POP3-Checker at 4 hands.
  • We renamed the project 'rymo' (read your mail online) because of name conflicts @ sourceforge.net. Also the new name is more fashionable than the old one ;)
