Issue Details

I'm trying to access a POP3 mail server that requires a username and a password at connection time to ensure that only valid customers access its services. I don't see a way to include this information when I use the SMTP E-mail VIs to communicate with such a server.


The SMTP E-mail VIs do not contain inputs for programmatically communicating with a POP3 mail server to retrieve email messages. However, there is a suite of POP Mail VIs that includes an example that you can use.
