Command line e-mail checker
« on: July 17, 2009, 03:49:24 PM »
Anyone know of a command line e-mail checking program for Windows, supporting IMAP? I've found several for sending e-mail, but I'd like one that'll check several IMAP accounts, and output at least number of new e-mails and preferably also some more details.

I posted it here to hear if you know of any programs like this, but might make another post in the IDEA-section if nothing surfaces.

anyway, thanks for reading in
