hi guys
newbie here
trying to create my own webmail pop3 checker for my site but cant find a tutorial. any chance any of u know the basic commands or know atutorial

noojam55 :cry:

Look here for a total overview of a winsock control tutorial and here for a sample of a mail checker application

thanks was after PHP one actually - sorry for confusment

SquirrelMail is a very nice open source, PHP-based webmail client. While I can't point you in the direction of a tutorial unfortunately, perhaps checking out their code will give you some ideas? http://sourceforge.net/projects/squirrelmail/


Second kudos for SquirrelMail. It was easy for me to setup. Had to tweek my services on the linux box a bit to accept imap connectivity, but it works for me. Web interface has a lot of customizations too, such as colors and how often it should check the email box. Was impressed.


Accessing and sending commands to a pop account was one of the most difficult things I have done in PHP. There is an object out there that I found that did most of the hard work for me, but even using that object got hairy at times.

Good luck, when I tried this a few years back I got a migraine after a few days of bad programming and grabbed an out of the box solution.

I know wat u talk but hard to find solution
