For the POP3 specification see the RFC1939

thanks.
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.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

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.
