The emailPOP3Session type is used to access a messaging server by using the POP3 protocol (Post Office Protocol) in order to retrieve the messages found on this server. The characteristics of the connection can be defined and changed using different WLanguage properties.
Remark: For more details on the declaration of this type of variable and the use of WLanguage properties, see Declaring a variable.
Example
// Start a POP3 session
MySession is emailPOP3Session
 
MySession.ServerAddress = "pop.mydomain.fr"
MySession.Name = "user"
MySession.Password = "secret"
 
EmailStartSession(MySession)
 
// Retrieve all the messages
arrMessage is array of Emails
arrMessage = EmailGetAll(MySession)
 
// Browse the array of messages by index
FOR I = 1 _TO_ MySession.EmailBySubscript.Count
Trace(MySession.EmailBySubscript[I].Subject)
END
 
// Browse the array of messages with a FOR EACH loop
FOR EACH AMessage OF MySession
