    My isp (Qwest) is setup to require a mail download with password before it will allow a mail upload. As a result I get a relay denial problem. I've talked to qwest and they can't change this, so I need a way in a batch file to download mail first (without removing it from the server) then proceed with my blat mail send. I really don't want to invoke another mail program in the batch file as that creates too many possibilities for errors. Anyone have any ideas?

      Greetings,

      Blat has the capability to do a POP3 login;

      -pu <username>  : username for POP3 LOGIN (use with -ppw)
      -ppw <password> : password for POP3 LOGIN (use with -pu)

      If that doesn't work try GetMail;

      http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/blat/files/Other/

      Call it from your batch script first. I know you
      don't want to use another program but if the POP3
      login doesn't work you have few alternatives.

      If you can use a Perl script I can give you a example
      to download your mail. But I believe GetMail is
      more reliable.

      GetMail is supported here, it is a sister program
      of Blat.
