[REBOL] Re: Command SSL to read your web mail

> Has anybody used SSL support to read email info in Yahoo or hotmail
accounts Yahoo email can be reached by qualifying the request with your username and password. I believe that this is sent in clear text, and therefore easily read if your packet is sniffed. /Command is not required. At the command prompt, try: print read pop://my-name:[my-password--pop--mail--yahoo--com] Of course, there will need to be some email there to check. 8-) Accessing Hotmail thru http, if I recall correctly, requires a combination of cookie management and javascript, thereby effectively eliminating the use of REBOL. I've not investigated the optional pop access. --Scott Jones
