    Default different approach to pop3

    I know there are some components for retrieving mails from a pop3 server. But I have a question in mind that if this pop3 job can be done by the vbscript classes.<BR>For example, I have script for file uploading via browser, which is working with vbscript classes. It works perfectly on free hosting services like brinkster. <BR>I wonder is it possible to use the vbscript classes for pop3.

    Default No, because...

    The only way to access POP3 is via a Socket. And there is no way built into ASP or VBScript to access sockets. You need *some* sort of component that can communitcate with a socket, just to get started.<BR><BR>
