    Well, a point in the right direction would be one for google.com, where you can look up "post office protocol" and the like.

    u can telnet into a pop3 account...i use common commands like uidl which gives u a list of messages u have and where there from... retr followed by the number of message (found from uidl) to retrieve that message and read it... quit obviously quits.... and theres some other ones....typing help will give u a full list. also along with port 110 if u use a ssl its port 995. I dont think u can telnet to that but someone correct me if i'm wrong.

    To elaborate on what was previously said. You might understand pop3 beter when viewed as a language, used between a mail client (Outlook) and a mail server (sendmail) used to retrieve, delete emails from an account. Here is where you can find information on pop3 and other mail protocols and related information:
