Class POP3Client() Professional
Class function of the POP3Client class.
Instances of the POP3Client class are used to access a POP3 server using the Post Office Protocol Version 3. This communication protocol is used to retrieve e-mail messages from a mail server.
A POP3Client connects via the TCP/IP network protocol to an e-mail server and then negotiates the parameters for retrieving messages. This so-called POP3 handshake is performed when the method :connect(). is executed.
By default, e-mails are transferred unencrypted as human-readable data. However, the POP3Client class also supports establishing connections where all communication is encrypted via a Secure Socket Layer (SSL). See the method :new() for more details on setting up secure connections.
