Project Description

This bid request is for a little piece of a bigger project.

The bigger project will:
1.) Download emails from multiple web-mail accounts,
2.) Parse them, and
3.) Generate reporting based on the data collected

This bid request is part of a solution to item #1.

Since Yahoo, MSN, and AOL do not allow free pop access to their webmail accounts, I’m going to be using 3 programs which log into these accounts and then emulate a pop server for email clients.

So the email client sends POP requests to the pop-emulator program and then that program logs into the webmail and does the rest.

The three (windows based) programs I’m referring to can be seen here:
<[url removed, login to view]>
<[url removed, login to view]>
<[url removed, login to view]>

What I need is a script which will send pop requests to these programs and send the emails it grabs (along with information like what email account it came from and whether it went to the inbox or bulk folder) to a PHP script where they will be parsed.

This project should be really easy and quick for somebody who knows what their doing.
