in reply to Just starting Out !

I've been trying something similar. I am (trying to) pull mail from multiple pop accounts into mySQL and then have a a client access the DB.
still early in the development stages, but here are some links I've found usefull that may help you with your project:

  • MIME::Tools
  • POP3Client
  • the Mail and Usenet section on cpan

    I think that a good project is just the thing to pick up perl. My first app is always being re-written because of the new things I learn.

    Do take heed at the warnings the other monks are mentioning. Look at how much trouble sendmail has. That can be overwhelming for a first project.

    Good luck tho!
