make-pop-connection

Arguments: host &key user password port timeout

This function creates a connection to the pop server on machine host and logs in as user with password password. The port argument defaults to 110, which is the port on which the pop server normally listens. The timeout argument defaults to 30 (seconds) and this value is used to limit the amount of time this pop interface code will wait for a response from the server before giving up. In certain circumstances the server may get so busy that you see timeout errors signaled in this code. In that case you should specify a larger timeout when connecting.

The value returned by this function is a mailbox object (such as is returned by make-imap-connection). You can call mailbox-message-count on the mailbox object to determine how many letters are currently stored in the mailbox.

See also with-pop-connection. See imap.htm for more information.
