after getting a very *enthusiastic* on asking if there was a way of using POP3 without extensions i decided that i would take things into my own hands and grab the POP3 RFC and get down to work. but does anyone know if this already exists (ie not using the extensions you have to download)? anyways, the real problem is that if i do it i would need a POP3 server to work on. and i was wandering if there was a pop3 server wher i could just easily set up a few accounts and be able to send mai lto myself like "admin@125.236.221.124" so i could test it properly without having to use a real account? TIA
