I would like to develop a Browser-based version of the pop3client.c program that is distributed with the mailutils package. Rather than accepting command-line-prompts and writing responses to the terminal, I would like convert it to supporting invocations from programs that provide a Web interface to the User. The idea is that using a Web-interface, a person could retrieve their mail from any email service (POP3) account(s) they currently have, using any device handy that has Internet connectivity. A Web-based email client in essence.

So, I would like to rework the pop3client.c program. But, I am having a little difficulty identifying all the components needed to get a clean compile of the program. For instance, currently the compile fails with pthread errors.

Would you be willing to give me a hand by identifying all the object code files, include files, etc. needed for compilation? Or, direct me to where I can find that information. I will be glad to give you a copy of the final product, which I am sure could be useful to many people.

Thank you for your consideration in this matter.

Mr. Robin Luzi
