Hi,
I was wondering if anybody succeeded retrieving mail from altavista mailbox?
I was trying a simple program:
<code><br>
Properties props = System.getProperties();
Session session = Session.getDefaultInstance(props);
session.setDebug(true);
Store store = session.getStore("pop3");
store.connect("mail.altavista.com", "myName", "myPassw");
...
</code>
It connects, sends name, then password, and then altavista closes connection. I know that both name and password exist - i.e. I can get to my mail using them on altavista's web page.
Anybody knows what's wrong?
Thanks,
Kathy
