Reading email

Hello, I have a gmail account and was wondering how to make a program that could read the messages in my account. The programming languages I could use are VB Studio 2005, DOS, and HTML, although I don't like HTML very much. I only need to read them, not send them. How do I read the messages? And, even further, how would I save the message of choice as a text file?

I don't really know how to do it; but I do know that you need to use the protocol (pop3, I think?) to log on and download the messages; after that, it shouldn't be too hard.

Interesting thing to try. You should pick up Python - its great for creating scripts such as these. ... tnG=Search
