hi,
      i have done the application using java mail API which is used to check the mail in u

r pop3 server account.

the source code of my application follows

//source code

import java.net.*;
import javax.mail.*;
import javax.mail.internet.*;
import java.util.*;
import java.io.*;
import java.lang.*;

class getmail
{
 private String host,username,password;
 private String provider = "pop3";
 private Properties props;
 private Session session;
 private Store store;
 private Folder inbox;
 private Message message1;
getmail(String host,String username,String password)
 {
   this.host = host;
   this.username = username;
   this.password = password;
  }
 
getmail(String username,String password)
 {
   this.username = username;
   this.password = password;
   host = "mail.uk2.net";
  }
public String[] connect()
 {
      int no;
      String[] from=null,nomess=null;
              try{
                  props = new Properties();
                  session = Session.getDefaultInstance(props,null);
                  store = session.getStore(provider);
                  store.connect(host,username,password);
                  if(inbox == null)
                  {
                        from = new String[1];
                        from[0]="nomail";
                  }
                  else
                  {
                  inbox = store.getFolder("INBOX");
                  inbox.open(Folder.READ_ONLY);
                              
                  Message[] message = inbox.getMessages();
                  System.out.println("count:"+inbox.getMessageCount());
                  from = new String[message.length];                  
      
                  for(int i=0;i< message.length;i++)
                  {
                         from[i] = InternetAddress.toString(message[i].getFrom());      
                  }
                  inbox.close(false);
                  }
            }
            catch(Exception e)
            {
                  e.printStackTrace();
                  //System.out.println("error:"+e);
            }
      return from;
 }
 
public void disconnect()throws Exception
{
 store.close();
}
                  
public void  openmessage(int i)throws Exception
{
      try{
            inbox.open(Folder.READ_ONLY);
            message1=inbox.getMessage(i);
            
      }
      catch(Exception e){}
}

public String getfrom()throws Exception
{
      return InternetAddress.toString(message1.getFrom());
}

public Date getdate()throws Exception
{
       return message1.getSentDate();
}

public String getsubject()throws Exception
{
       return message1.getSubject();
}

public String getcontent()throws Exception
{
      int i;
      InputStream in ;
      char ch[]=null;
      String content="";
      try{
      in = message1.getInputStream();
      ch = new char[in.available()];
      for(i=0;i<in.available();i++)
      {
            ch[i]=(char)in.read();
            content=content+ch[i];
      }
      
      }
      catch(Exception e){}
      return content;
}
}






public class test
{
 public static void main(String args[])throws Exception
 {
   int checkmail =0;
   getmail get=new getmail("deeppra","pradeep");
   String[] allmess = get.connect();
   if(allmess[0] == "nomail")
      System.out.println("No mail in Inbox");
   else
   {
      checkmail = 1;
      for(int i=0;i< allmess.length;i++)
      {
      
            System.out.println("size:"+allmess.length);
            System.out.println("inside for:"+allmess[i]);
      }
    }
 
   if(checkmail == 1)
   {
      get.openmessage(1);
      System.out.println("from:"+get.getfrom());
      System.out.println("Subject:"+get.getsubject());
      System.out.println("date:"+get.getdate());
      System.out.println("message:");
      System.out.println(get.getcontent());
    }
  get.disconnect();
}
}
//end of code

It looks like you only open one message from your inbox.
You should loop over the following code for each message, calling
get.openmessage() on each message.

 {
     get.openmessage(1);
     System.out.println("from:"+get.getfrom());
     System.out.println("Subject:"+get.getsubject());
     System.out.println("date:"+get.getdate());
     System.out.println("message:");
     System.out.println(get.getcontent());
    }

 {
     get.openmessage(1);
     System.out.println("from:"+get.getfrom());
     System.out.println("Subject:"+get.getsubject());
     System.out.println("date:"+get.getdate());
     System.out.println("message:");
     System.out.println(get.getcontent());
    }

i the above comment u told that to loop the above code,but u r opening the first message in the inbox,then how can we get all the message.
and also i am getting the message count as 1,that means it referres as only one mail.
plz give me the modified code for checking all the mails from my inbox.
thank u
