Collecting e-mail

I don't know if anyone can answer this question, but here goes..

I know that within a cgi script you can send someone an e-mail using /usr/bin/sendmail, but is there anyway of collecting e-mail on Unix ? This is not relevant to Plus Net, I was just wondering if there is anyway of collecting POP3 e-mail on a Unix box.

Any thoughts anyone ?

Good Afternoon,

There are ways. You can install a text based mail reader for instance.

This is beyond what we can support however.

Kind Regards

Search on www.redhat.com (If you click the download button on the top right) then use the RPM search tool.

Once you've found the RPM you're looking for I would recommend downloading it from the UK Mirror at:
ftp://ftp.mirror.ac.uk/sites/ftp.redhat.com/pub/

you'll need to fill the rest of the path your self.

If you use an ftp package then use anonymous login to the site.

Kind Regards

Good Afternoon,

The program you are looking for is pine, I didn't realise it had been installed on criticalmass.

Again, we cannot support it, but it's there already for you.
