The RetrieveMessage function takes the number of the message to retrieve as parameter. Just change that number to retrieve different messages.

You can also use the GetMessage function to get the whole message with headers as a single string.

That is because you first need to call OpenMessage to tell which message you want to read.

You can also use the the class POP 3 stream handler function that allows you to access mailbox messages with PHP file functions like fopen, fread. Take a look at the browse_mailbox.php example.

You can only retrieve one message at a time. Just increment the message number for each of the messages in the mailbox.

GetMessage method

- the $count argument indicates the number of bytes to be read from an opened message.
- The $message returns by reference the data read from the message.
- The $end_of_message argument returns by reference a boolean value indicated whether it was reached the end of the message.
