Thanks Greg. I wonder why RT haven't implemented the TOP command. On another point, I was wondering how to write a POP proxy server. Copying some of RT's code, I tried the following: pop-port: open/lines join tcp://: 110 forever [ connection-port: first pop-port until [ wait connection-port error? try [print first connection-port] ] close connection-port ] close pop-port which should echo every thing sent to port 110, but when I do this from another console session: open pop://me:[password--127--0--0--1] I get nothing echo'd back. -- Graham Chiu

You may wish to look at the RFC for POP3 (I don't have the number at hand), or maybe just try connecting to a real server and see what it does.

Hi Gabriele, I've sort of got it going now. Just sent back a "+OK" to say I was waiting for authentication. Now to finish writing my mini pop server :) -- Graham Chiu
