Hi, Bryan, The best answer may depend on the pop server. The simplest thing to try is: read-mail: read pop://user%2Faccount:[password--itnisk--com] An alternative approach may be to try: read-mail: read [ scheme: 'pop host: "" user: "user/account" pass: "password" ] If you are feeling adventuresome, you can see if the following patch works (I have no easy way to test it): net-utils/url-parser/user-char: union net-utils/url-parser/user-char make bitset! "/" ;then Read-mail: read pop://user/account:[password--itnisk--com] It would be helpful for the future to know if any/all of these work (especially the last). Best of luck. --Scott Jones
