Fetchmail was written to let me check POP3 emails anywhere using just a browser. It was also an exercise to run the latest version of Dojo (v.1.2) through its tracks. Though Dojo is purported to be working on the new versions of FF,Safari and IE, I am not sure about IE. I still get the page all skewed up in some versions of IE. So for best results I would suggest to use FF or Safari.
For the core POP3 and MIME decoding classes I used the excellent classes by Manuel Lemos. I made some slight alterations to the existing code and added a wrapper class to act as the intermediary between the UI code and the backend code.
Any feedback on Fetchmail is welcome. I have plans of adding more functionality to it.
First public beta release
I came across an article that talks about the same thing but even more and when you go deeper.
