[REBOL] Re: POP and SMTP servers for yahoo accounts?

From: steve:shireman:semaxwireless at: 28-Aug-2001 7:56

David, This would be easy in Rebol: Since downloading email via POP is generally a two step process, first the email client reads the list and size of all emails, and then decides which of the emails in the list to download. The following code, stolen from page 272 of "Rebol for Dummies"
>> messages: read pop://username:[password--popprefix--yourdom--com]
connecting to:
>> length? messages ;just tells you how many emails are there.
== 13 Now, just read the last email in the series, and/or traverse the list backwards. (Chapter 15 of "Rebol for Dummies" gives ways to manipulate the emails, delete specific ones, filter, etc. Specifically pages 312 and 320 give some mailbox manipulation examples) Hope Ralph Roberts doesn't mind the book plug. More later if I have time, back to work. HTH, Steve Shireman So Russia has pulse dialing. Thought there was still some left in the world. Are there still pulse dial phones being produced?
