Introduction to Net_POP3

About Net_POP3

Provides a POP3 class to access POP3 servers. Supports all POP3 commands including UIDL listings and APOP authentication.

Usage of this class compared to native PHP extensions such as IMAP is slow and may be feature deficient. If available you are STRONGLY recommended to use the PHP extensions.

Usage example for Net_POP3
