POP3 Bash Client

This is a VERY, VERY RAW implementation of a pop3 client just to experiment with sockets in C.

It was coded using Netbeans IDE in Linux.

Important: DO NOT USE WITH YOUR PERSONAL E-MAIL ACCOUNT. NOTHING is encrypted and read mail are stored in the MAILS folder in PLAIN TEXT.

Tests were done with a test Yahoo email account, hence you will find its server's IPs in client.txt. You can change them if you want to use another email service.

Instructions:

At readFile.c, at lines 290 and 361 you must replace "YOURUSER@DOMAIN.COM" with your email account. For example JohnDoe@yahoo.com.

When you have finished composing your email, you must add at the end "MF" to indicate that to the program. It's terrible, I know but that was the way i came up with to detect the end of the message within a bash console.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
