It is suitable for batch jobs or whenever there is a need to download e-mails as files into a folder. This mail receiver supports the POP3 protocol and is both robust and light weight. The settings are defined in an xml file. You can configure it to save mail attachments as separate files.

Using Command Line POP Client

1 Changing the settings
The settings are defined in an xml file, you can create as many xml files as you wish. For example, you can have one settings file for each account. A default config file called democonfig.xml can be found under the directory of installation (default is 'c:\program files\command line pop client\'). Open this file in a text editor such as notepad. Make the settings for your e-mail account and save the file.
