     This POP3 Email Client is a bare bone for making your own full-blown POP3 Email Software! This commented code will teach you how to communicate with POP3 email servers from around the world. The functionality of this program include taking in the host name, user name, and password as parameters and connecting to a POP3 server, if the POP3 server contains mail, it will display the first email in the text box, a great start to a C++ email program! This program demostrates a practical usage for Windows Winsock, and it's all coded in memory-saving Windows API, with no usage of MFC! If you like this, please vote for me :)

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
