I’m trying to user perl to write a script to basically look through my mail for a specific automated message and then it can alert me of it. Anyway, that part’s not important. I can’t get Net::POP3 to connect. Here’s all I have:
my $ServerName = “mail.derekdev.com”;
my $pop3 = new Net::POP3($ServerName) or die(“Couldn’t connect to server”);
my $username = “username”;
my $password = “password”;
my $numMessages = $pop3->login($username, $password) or die(“Couldn’t login to server”);
my $messages = $pop3->list();
And it gives me this:
Couldn’t login to server at mail.pl line 42.
Yes, I’ve checked the username and password, and yes I edited them out of this code. What else do I need to get it to connect? Something more than the username and password maybe? I’m pretty sure we don’t have a pre-installed PHP module to do this or else I’d use PHP. I don’t want to learn Python syntax (tho I should one of these days anyway). Maybe there’s another simpler option? I really hate perl, but I’ll use it if I have to.
