Pop3Client Module

Pop3Client Module Introduction

The Pop3Client module provides the Pop3Client class for retrieving emails from a POP3 server, with or without TLS/SSL encryption.

To use this module, use "%requires Pop3Client" in your code. See examples/pop3.q for an example program using this module.

All the public symbols in the module are defined in the Pop3Client namespace.

The main classes are:

#!/usr/bin/env qore
%requires Pop3Client
sub log(string msg) {
printf("%y: %s\n", now_ms(), vsprintf(msg, argv));
string url = "pop3s://username:[email protected]";
Pop3Client pop3(url, \log(), \log());
# do not send a QUIT so changes will not be committed
*hash<auto> h = pop3.getMail();
printf("Mailbox Summary:\n");
map printf("%s: From: %s (size: %d bytes, attachments: %d)\n", $1.key, $1.value.msg.getFrom(), $1.value.size, $1.getvalue.msg.getAttachments().size()), h.pairIterator();
if (!h)
printf("no messages\n");
date now_ms()
string printf(string fmt,...)
string vsprintf(string fmt, auto varg)
based on http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc1939 (POP3)
