View Full Version : POP3 readers

08-08-2008, 04:53 AM
I'm looking for a library to connect me to a pop3 server to retrieve mail. I've tried a few classes I've found on phpclasses.org and they didn't work out that great. The ones I tried were extremely slow for some reason and didn't have the functionality I needed.

I'm looking for a library to connect me to a pop3 server, with a setting to choose the port. Retrieve mail, with functions that will only retrieve sent on, date, subject, from, and the actual message. The one I had before sent the entire email encoding, and it was hard for me to code the information out since each email was in somewhat of a different format for the header.

Any suggestions?
If you have any, I thank you in advanced.

Sorry for being so late on posting a reply to this, but I almost forgot about this. I'm not looking for another client just a library. I'm making my own email application online for users to connect to several email servers and only needing to go to one website to do so. The site is http://www.blahertech.org/dev/mail/ if you want to see what I'm doing. I'm sorry I wasn't more specific of why I needed the library.
