sounds like you need to open up port 110 in your firewall.

    Opening port 110 on the Exchange server isn't something I can do.

    So.

    Anyone got advice about another approach I can use to accomplish the goal? (grab inbox contents off Exchange from a remote host)

    I appreciate it!

      Since you cannot change the firewall, can you change the location you run the script? You said that when you ran it as a proof of concept on your PC (on the same side of the firewall as the Exchange server) it worked but that you did not want to run production code on your PC. Is there a production grade PC behind the firewall that you can run it on? That would solve your problem

        Yes, and no. Sure I can successfully run this from another host, but eventually, I'll be looking at the database that is local to the FTP server. Makes sense to run this from the FTP as well, but may not be possible.

        Thanks for the input!

[Corion]: usemodperl: Why would you want HTTP there? If you want/need to use wget without SSL libraries, set www.cpan.org (or whatever) as your uplink?
[marto]: I suspect more trolling...
[usemodperl]: Because the audience for my apps have old, locked down versions of perl that can't install modules or update perl and now all that is horribly broken without HTTP. Of course I can go outside Perl anytime but that impacts portability
[usemodperl]: I can find cpan mirrors on http but not with plain files, only tar.gz, does something like meta exist on http?
