Perl as email client?
Message ID:

As a (motivated) beginner with some the basics I can write small text 
manipulation scripts and also doing some of up to including intermediate 
cgi Perl localhost Apache sometimes also on Unix server

Thus I hope I within scope this list

What I seek:

ability use perl for purpose/task as a substitute email client on my 
Windows W2k OS PC.  (my email software app & ISP stuff been a pain lately)

while currently logged onto dialup ISP # 2  I need to retrieve my email 
from a different ISP, ISP # 1

Thus while logged onto my dialup  ISP_2  where  resides  I 
need to retrieve my email  from  ISP_1  where  resides

Is such a task possible/practical with Perl?  If so, with a bit of help, I 
think I can grasp it.

What Perl module(s)?  Pointers?

Thanks!  Alan.
