Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. FreePOPs is an extensible mail proxy. Its primary use is to allow checking and downloading of e-mail from webmails from any conventional POP3 client program, avoiding the need to use a Web browser. It can also be used as an aggregator for RSS feeds and more. This application retrieves all your messages from various accounts without manual login through an http page. FreePOPs is a POP3 daemon with a Lua interpreter and some extra libraries for HTTP and HTML parsing. Its main purpose is translating local POP3 requests to remote HTTP actions on the supported webmails, but it is more flexible than that. For example, a plugin is available that allows receiving news from a website as if they were e-mail messages in a mailbox. Most plugins work by screen scraping the target website. FreePOPs can be extended on the fly: plugins can be added or existing ones can be modified by simply changing the relevant script file.
