    I have an account in a website. Whenever i need to read my inbox from
    that website. I have to login with my name and password.

    I need a solution for this i.e.,
    i need a perl program which

    (1)uses the password and username to login
    (2) read the inbox

    the server has a https connection...and sorry to say no pop3 access is
    there....
    i tried lwp posting of username and password. it worked to a certain
    extent. that is i got in.

    but again for reading the inbox using the lwp get method i get this
    message "Your session has expired, please login again!"

    plz help me reg. the steps i should use????

    Someone may have already written a module for that. Search
    CPAN for "webmail."
