access address book using pop3

Post by jaso » Thu Mar 08, 2007 8:52 am

Hai
Is it possible to access gmail or other free pop3 service provider address book. I want to access my mail address book using pop3 connection.

Thanks in advance

No, pop3 doesn't have any convention to access address books. There is a protocol called LDAP that you might be interested in, though. I don't know a whole lot about it myself and I don't know how many email services support it. Doing some quick research, I have seen conflicting evidence if gmail supports it or not, but this webpage would indicate that it does with instructions on how to do it in TB and OE:
