The complete script (minus the obvious user/domain details) is as
REBOL [Title: "check mail"]
print "Content-Type: text/plain"
mailbox: open pop://user:[pass--domain--com]
while [not tail? mailbox] [
msg: import-email first mailbox
print "mail: "
mailbox: next mailbox
The error occurs on the open line. I've also tried entering this in the
rebol console via telnet, and I get the same error.
Any help appreciated.
