For the POP3 specification see the RFC1939

I get the same answer from the java programming, Now i need the source code, not specification anymore. If anyone have source code or know any place I can download it, please tell me.

For an excellent pop3 class, download this file:
http://www.codeguru.com/internet/updatepop3wrapper.zip

Then for information about it visit:
http://www.codeguru.com/internet/updatepop3wrapper.shtml

Since this code is based on someone elses, you might want to look at the original which is available at:
http://www.codeguru.com/internet/pop3_protocol_class_wrapper.shtml

If you have any questions about it, please ask.

Note that when I said class, I was referring to a C++ class, not a Java class.  If you are looking for Java, the answer will not help you.

Any particular reason for the B?  I don't really care, but what was wrong with the code I directed you to?

Thanks.
