    POP3/IMAP email reading with J2ME

    Hello all,

    Are there any articles on how to read POP3/IMAP email from external server with J2ME?

    I would like to program a simple client to retrieve emails from my webmail server.

    Thanks for you help!

    I don't know of any articles, but if this was my problem, I would:

    1st look into TPC/IP socket programming examples in general and then learn to use such APIs properly (for any purpose).

    Then I'd research POP3 and IMAP4 protocol specifications (http://www.ietf.org) to see what kind of protocols they are, what kind of messages (socket calls) I'd have to generate, what the correct responses are (and make sure that the code could also handle incorrect responses gracefully).

    And, of course, it'd be best to set up your own POP3/IMAP4/SMTP server to develop and test with (don't test with any service providers' servers; they won't like it).
