I could use a mail program that wouldnt require me to change the
options several times to check all my pop accounts. I also would
like it to make a folder for each of my email accounts, and have filters
for them, that would sort the emails in their subfolders.  I would like the
filters be configurable so that I could use and combine AND/OR/NOT
operators on e.g the 'from' field, the first sender host etc..

is there such a program? I havent seen one yet.. if so where do I find it?
is there anybody willing to write one? or could you put me on right track by
giving me code for connecting via telnet to receive mail, without it being a
confusing for ever loop polling for input from the host? prefrarably in C++ but
others accepted if better

if you are willing to write one, Im sure it would be a success

if i remember correctly, check "procmail"
You would need to use Eric Raymond's "fetchmail" too.
