Webmail POP clients [Aug. 29th, 2006|10:12 am]
Brad Fitzpatrick
Which webmail providers let (free) users suck down mail from other POP servers?

To be clear, which function as POP clients, not servers?

And how many accounts? 1? >1?

I trust this is a problem that a .forward doesn't fix?

Except when you run into old mailboxes, i.e., the mail's already been delivered.

There are several times that I wish Gmail would support inbound POP.

Last time I checked, procmail could fix this. But that's not much consolation for hosted email with a web interface to touch .forward but no way to get at a real shell. (Alternately, mutt's bounce works well. Again, no use sans shell.)

Think about what Brad's been posting about recently. My guess is he wants to test a POP3 implementation he wrote against popular clients.

Yeah, I've maybe been only kinda paying attention.
