Download MUMail.1.4.2.zip (~ 128K), MUMail.1.4.2.tar.gz (~ 128K) or MUMail.1.4.2.tar.bz2 (~ 128K) and unpack it in a directory that is published by your Web server. This creates a directory called MUMail containing these files:
To start MUMail you need to copy MUMail.jar and MUMail.gif into one
directory. Change to that directory and start the class mumail.MUMail.
On a UNIX machine for example you can use a script just like the one below. Enter the MUMail directory name, your POP3 and your SMTP server name into the script below. Make it executable and start it.
MUDIR="enter your installation directory here"
POPSRV="your POP3 server"
SMTPSRV="your SMTP server"
if [ -z "$CLASSPATH" ]; then
if [ -n "$JAVA_HOME" ]; then
elif [ -n "$JDK_HOME" ]; then
elif [ -n "$JRE_HOME" ]; then
java -classpath "$MUDIR"/MUMail.jar:"$CLASSPATH" mumail.MUMail \
-pophost "$POPSRV" -smtphost "$SMTPSRV"
Sun's HotJava, the Appletviewer from most (SUN-based) JDK's and also MS InternetExplorer 4/5 have ways to relax security settings though. If you relax the security settings you will be able to read mail from any POP3 server on the Internet.
For Appletviewer you select Properties... from the Applet menu and change Network access: to Unrestricted.
For HotJava1.x select Preferences -> Applet security... from the Edit menu and select Medium Security for Unsigned Applets. Hit the Apply button and you are all set. With medium permission set HotJava will ask permission for all restricted actions. Just allow this action when you are asked for permission to connect to your POP server.
Microsoft InternetExplorer allows in the Internet Option Dialog under tab Security to change also Java security restrictions.
So if you relaxed your security settings you can try the applet right here.
