    There is an open source version of a POP3 mail client called Pheonix Mail, and it's available at:
    http://fox.hispeed.com/phoenix/us_home.shtml

    Maybe you can get good ideas from that If it's *NIX, a ton of programs are under the GPL and you can get source for POP3 clients from many sources.

    I wish you the best of luck in your project.

    i trust that you have your own ideas for this. But wouldn't it be better if you did almost all of this yourself? Blah. Good luck with this. I agree with alittlebitnumb that link will give you an idea of what a pop3 client looks like. so you can form your own source from that. Good luck again.

    What kind of programming experience do you have? That makes a difference. Also, what are you planning on developing for, Win32 or *nix? What's the project for? School or just a summer project? I can give you some good ideas, but I need some more info.

    Most of my own programming projects, aside from class assignments, started out just as something I needed or I could use for my own personal use, because if you could use it you'd be surprised at how many others would find it useful too.

    OH, NO...
    Not another mail client...

    for Unix there are atleast 100 console and propably a 1000 graphical mail clients in everyday use..

    Why would you make a new one from scratch.. The only reason I can think of is getting more experience..
    Well in that case, good luck ; )
    ASCII stupid question, get a stupid ANSI.
