Mail::POP3Client implements an Object Oriented interface to a POP3 server using RFC1939. It is quite easy to use.

Why use MAIL::POP3Client?

  • You want to easily access a POP3 server with Perl.

    Why NOT use Mail::POP3Client?

  • You are accessing an IMAP server :-).


    use Mail::POP3Client; $pop = new Mail::POP3Client( USER => "me", PASSWORD => "mypassword", HOST => "" ); for( $i = 1; $i <= $pop->Count(); $i++ ) { foreach( $pop->Head( $i ) ) { /^(From|Subject):\s+/i && print $_, "\n"; } } $pop->Close();

    Personal Notes

    MAIL::POP3Client is the module I used when writing pemail, a command line MUA. I found the module to be very intuitive and straightforward. Writing pemail and using this module are what really got me into Perl programming. I highly recommend this module for any programs that require POP3 server access.

    • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
    • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
      <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
    • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
    • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
