    Telnet - email

    Hello,
    does anyone know how to telnet to a mailer and recieve email? I want to use the windows telnet program, you know were you go to run, and type telnet blah blah port balh and hit ok and and the telnet window comes up. Be aware that I am totally green when it comes to this, it's a total new concept to me and it doesn't seem difficult to learn, I just need a little step by step help from the pro's. I have no idea what the commands are, and even how to log into my mail server. I know what it is, and I think I use pop3, I go threw outlook if that helps. So if anyone can help me, it would much appreciated. Thanks Code One

    1a. Run
    1b. Type..., telnet mailservername.com 110 (ex: hotmail.com)

    Telnet Program loads:
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    1a. Type..., user username (ex: user Charlie)
    1b. Hit enter
    2a. Type..., pass password (ex: pass Brown)
    2b. Hit enter
    3a. Type..., list
    3b. Hit enter
    =====================================================================
    Your list of emails are displayed in order. To check them:
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    1a. Type..., retr 1 (This number represents the emails place number)
    1b. Hit enter
    =====================================================================
    The email will display, along with who sent it, etc.
    =====================================================================
    To quit:
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    1b. Hit enter
    =====================================================================
    Full example:
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    Step1 - Run Box:
    *********************************************************************
    ________________________________________________

    Run:| telnet mailservername.com 110 | <--- Type what you see here, with YOUR own mail server name
    ----------------------------------------------

    OK --- Cancel <--- Hit OK
    ________________________________________________
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Step2 - Telnet window:
    *********************************************************************
    user Charlie ---- (hit enter)
    (should say OK+ if correct)
    pass Brown --- (hit enter)
    (should say OK+ if correct)
    list --- (hit enter)
    (should say OK+ if correct)
    (if you have mail it will look simular to this):
    1 1489
    2 7652
    .
    retr 1 --- (hit enter)
    (should say OK+ if correct)
    (should display email info.)

    More commands:

    You can also type..., dele 1 (or corresponding number)
    after viewing each email, and this command will delete the email.
