Since Pop is TCP/IP-based you could try to patch the protocol.

ok thank you , seem to be hard at first look :D

you could start a console mail client via the shell execute node and pipe received messages into a file, which in turn you could read into v4. a bit of a hackaround and i don’t know whether you will find the proper tools for the windows platform. but could be worth a try.

/m.

or maybe reading out the email on serverside - letting a php script display the email as html page and request it via http node

or let an email program like eudora constantly check for mails, if i’m not mistaken it should be fairly easy to read its database file.

eudora plays a sound which could trigger the update process in vvvv, or u check the filesize.

a little bit offtopic:

sending emails with vvvv is possible now:

thank you Kalle ;D
