First you should be clear about "where" you want to retrieve mail from, and what you will do with these mails. Are you talking about a web-mail interface?

You need a basic underlying mail infrastructure: an accessible POP3 or IMAP mail service, where your incoming mails had to be delivered to, before you can start to retrieve anything.

If you have a working IMAP on your server, then you may look at the web-mail product [squirrelmail.org...] , which is written in PHP.

It is an Open Source project, so you can have a look at their code to get an idea on how they do it.

Kind regards,
R.

Z_scorp, do you mean that your php script is executed when a mail arrives at a certain mail address?

this can be done via a pipe, checkout some related threads here:
