-= INFORMATION ABOUT THIS PLUGIN =-

check_pop3_account.pl logs into a POP3 or POP3 over SSL (POP3S) account and reports the number of messages found. It can optionally generate alerts based on the number of messages found. Performance data is available.

You may omit the warning and critical options if you are not concerned about the number of messages in the account. The protocol option may also be ommited. If protocol is not defined it will default to POP3.

This program is written and maintained by:
Jason Ellison - infotek(at)gmail.com

It is a slight rewrite of a POP3 plugin written by Moshe Sharon.

Worked great out of the box for me on an XI system. Good plugin, thanks.

Also, be sure to install libio-socket-ssl-perl if you plan to use this monitor with the pop3s flag.

Works well; ensure you have libmail-pop3client-perl installed!
