    Question Email checking in TouchTerm?

    Years and years ago, I used to check my POP email accounts in a terminal emulater program called Z-Term. Does anyone know if it's possible to use a program like TouchTerm on the iPhone to check email...bypassing Mail.app?

    Thanks!

    Yea, you can use a telnet client to check your e-mail. All you need to do is point your client at your mail server and use the appropriate port number for the protocol that your mail server uses.

    Example:
    telnet mail.comcast.net 110
    USER userid
    PASS password
    LIST
    RETR msg#
    QUIT

    So, I'd just type those lines (adapted, of course) into TouchTerm on my 2G iPhone? I've actually NEVER used telnet so I my grasp of how to actually accomplish this from a command prompt in a terminal emulator is, well, somewhat limited...
