WebMail / Internet based emails.

Since I am traveling around the world for the next 2 years, I'd like to write my own webmail program in perl(just because I don't like hotmail or GMX etc......). I already have written the mail-program itself. So I am able to send emails, they are stored on the server.....
The problem I am experiencing now is that I have no idea how to collect the emails from my pop3 account. Could somebody please help me with that, or point out an internet-link where this question is already been answered.

Thank you


I do not have more points. However, I will give the person who gives me an correct answer more points next month. Hopefully you unterstand and try to support me anyway.

Hi Chris,

Since you already have some Perl coding experience, perhaps you may want to you Mail::Pop3Client Perl module to do that;

Some module documentation.

I use neomail http://neomail.sourceforge.net/

Even though it is no longer being developed, it is still a great piece of software and well written.
I use qdpop. It is discontinued but I can give you a url to download it?
