Hi I am looking for java source on how to retrieve pop3 mail according to words in the subject of the mail message. For instance if the word "urgent" apears in the subject, the program should only forward that message to another mail box and leave the rest still intact on the server.  The source must not use the JavaMail API since I only want to use ServerSocket and Socket.

Here's a good open-source library from Jakarta with POP3 support: http://jakarta.apache.org/commons/net/
I believe you can get it to selectively retrieve messages as you want. This does not require JavaMail.
