Oh what, you mean something like:
telnet some.mail.server 110
user username
pass password
top 1 20 (to read the headers)
top 1 40
top 1 60
top 1 80
etc etc etc

Hehehe, I've checked my email like this many a time. *grin*

Only thing to remember, don't leave more than 60 secs between commands or
you get booted.  Oh yes, and it doesn't work if the server wants ssl
authentication, sorry, but I don't talk realtime ssl. *grin*
