If you have a pop3 server,
you can log onto it with telnet 110 and interrogate the pop3
server. Here is how mine does it. I haven't shown the server
responses. telnet YourIspMailServer 110 <----port for pop3
USER yourusername
PASS yourpassword
LIST <---------This shows you all your messages and their size,which I
includes attachments.
DELE <message no> deletes the big one if you want
RETR <message no> gets the message, dumping it to your screen.
TOP <message no> < Number of lines> Shows first part of message plus
all headers. Takes two numbers, like TOP 3 5
QUIT Sign you off.
