Sparrow has today launched version 1.6 of its Mac email client, finally providing support for POP email.

With the addition of POP email, you can now include your Hotmail and other non-IMAP email accounts on Sparrow, bringing them in alongside your existing Gmail accounts to create a ‘True’ Unified Inbox.

This means you ill be able to add favourites and empty spam in the main client, toggling between accounts when composing an email. If you were a fan of Sparrow but didn’t use it because you wanted to include your other personal accounts, you might want to revisit the app.
