E-mail is probably one of the most addictive Internet applications. It is not unusual for people to become anxious due to messages that they are waiting for. However, sometimes it is not possible to access your mailbox when you most need it.

This class provides a solution for accessing the latest e-mail messages in a given mailbox via the Web. It builds an RSS feed with summaries of the latest messages in a mailbox.

This feed can be picked by any RSS feed reader application or Web site, so the user can see the latest message headlines without direct access to his mailbox.
