Hi!
There are a 2 ways you can accomplish it!

You can search for a free email retriever cgi script or you can do it the hard way...develope your own!

In order to develope your own, you will need to establish a TCP/IP connection to your incomming POP server trough port 110 (usually) and send the USER and PASS commands.

If you're novice to cgi or to sockets programming, the first option is definiteley your bet.  I can't tell you what free web mail cgi's exist, but I downloaded and installed successfully one some time ago.

Hope I helped a bit :)

If you don't know anything about CGI, why do you post your question in the CGI area then?

if you have access to lwp on your machine the following code will retrive pop3 mail:

#!/usr/bin/perl

use Net::POP3;

$pop = Net::POP3->new($mail_server) or die "Cant open connection to $mail_server $!\n";
$pop->login($username, $password) or die "Cant authenticate: $!\n";
$messages = $pop->list or die "Cant get list of messages: $!\n";

foreach $msgid (keys %$messages)
{
  $message = $pop->get($msgid);
  unless (defined $message)
  {
    warn "Couldnt fetch $msgid from server: $!\n";
    next ;
  }
  pop->delete($msgid);
}
