libspopc is a simple and thin pop3 client library actually used by several small (and even smaller) programs. One of libspopc's purposes was to help developpers to host easily a pop3 mail client in their programs whatever their knowledge on the network API in libc.

It does not handle mail file parsing, but just provides a session-based or a socket-based interface for email transfert. Both APIs aim to be easy to use.

libspopc works on any UNIX-like system and also MS-windows (even old win32). It is very small (but could be smaller again). Just being an RFC1939 implementation and a partial RFC2595 implementation, supporting SSL connections when linked with OpenSSL. Enjoy and stretch the toy..
