Hi,
Have you tested it on normal shared hosting with shared IP?
I could never access POP3 from php without dedicated IP.
If you have a workaround, then I will be glad.

Regards

Do you mean shared POP3 server hosting?

Usually the user name includes the domain, for instance like this someuser@gmail.com , instead of just someuser.

Thanks for your reply.

I did not mean shared POP3. User name used with domain name, but for common shared hosting packages (without dedicated IP), the hosting company does not allow to open a socket connection to the POP3 server to the POP port. That is the problem I faced.

Sometimes hosting people only block some ports. Some e-mail providers allow connecting to the POP3 or SMTP using different ports. You need to see if that is the case of the POP3 server you want to use.

If you cannot open sockets nor use the IMAP extension, there is not much that can be done, I'm afraid.
