Reading an Email from a POP3 server

Postby LEBEGUE » Thu Feb 06, 2003 4:33 pm

Hello,
Who knows the way to read an Email from a POP3 server. In other terms, I search a Macro Scheduler command to read my email server something like: PopReadMail with fields dedicated to sender, subject and text.

Have a look at this: GetMail
Cause this is a commandline tool (free for personal use) you can easily combine it with Macro Schedulers Run Program> command.

BTW: A sender equivalent is: Blat! (which you won't need cause Macro Scheduler has his own SMTPSendMail> command).

Postby LEBEGUE » Mon Feb 10, 2003 3:59 pm

Hello,
After testing, this Email pop reader is the good product for my need. It's running fine after adjustments
The getmail.exe is just installed in the winnt/system32 directory.
My code is as follow:


Label>receiving

Run Program>Getmail -dir c:\mail\
Wait>1
Run Program>Getmail -install pop.free.fr yourlogin passwordblabla yes yes 3 110
Wait>1
Run Program>Getmail -dir c:\mail\
Wait>1
Run Program>Getmail -pw yourpassword
Wait>
Run Program>Getmail -delete

Label>fin
Message>End reception


Thanks for your utility recommandation.

Best regards

Hi,

If using version 7.1 I would set RP_WAIT to 1 before running this script to ensure that each Run Program>GETMAIL completes before the next step. You can then avoid the Wait> statements and it ensures that the script won't fail if for example the first GETMAIL operation takes longer than a second to complete.

Let>RP_WAIT=1
Run>GETMAIL etc etc
etc

Check if the single commands (you send now with seperate GetMail statements) can be written to a single file which will be read by GetMail while executed.
