POP Mail Server

You can manually interact with a POP server to perhaps manually delete an email that your mail too is having trouble downloading, or simply to check things out. Here's a sample manual session:

  $ telnet pop.togaware.com 110
  Connected to pop.togaware.com. 
  Escape character is '^]'. 
  +OK Hello there. 
  USER kayon
  +OK Password required. 
  PASS Secret
  +OK logged in. 
  +OK POP3 clients that break here, they violate STD53.
