Auto Telnet session to POP3 mail drop
Posted on 1998-04-01
I actually have two questions rolled into one situation.
I need to automate a telnet connection from a UNIX box to a POP3 compliant mail server.
Obviously, I need to pass a username:password pair to the Mail daemon.. but how? Then I need to have the mail deamon send all messages to the UNIX box from which I'm invoking this capability.
I was hoping a meta-character coupled with the RETR command would work (RETR *)... but it does not. <duh>
Can anyone offer assistance?
