Hi all,
Does anyone have an idea on how to go about building a webmail application.

Im having trouble reading data.
So far i can get it to tell me there are new emails and to display the Sender, and Subject.
But the message has all this other data in it that i really dont want.
You have to kind of decipher the message from the string of data.
Does anyone no much on this?

Thanks ahead.

If you really want to get in to the nitty-gritty of it, you'll need to implement POP3. However, it will be easier just to use a library that already implements the protocol, and build your application around that. Most languages have some sort of POP library either built in to the framework or as a downloadable additional module.
