You need to tell us more about what you are trying to do for us to be
able to help you much.

However: -

- - POP3 is a mature, standard protocol, so anything you write which reads
from one POP3 mail server should read from another, although there are
some quirky authentication schemes that can crop up to confuse matters.

- - You can download a free POP3 server for Windows (A whole mail server
with SMTP, POP3 and IMAP support, in fact, but that was not what you
asked!) from: -

        http://www.pmail.com/

        (look for Mercury/32).

...and there are any number of free and open-source mail servers for
Un*ces (Mercury/32 is free, but sadly not open source). For example,
XMail has SMTP and POP3 (but not IMAP), is open source and runs on
Windows and Linux etc.: -

        http://www.xmailserver.org/

- - FWIW, Mercury/32 (can't speak for Xmail) stores mails as discrete
files in a standard folder, so if you wish you can work with the file
system rather than the POP3 protocol. I've set up Plone to access the
queue, log and mailbox folders in a Mercury instance for administrative
purposes, for example.

- - If you want to interface with the mail server configuration (as
opposed to mail messages), Xmail may be a better bet - it stores it's
configuration in tab delimited ASCII files, which should be a snap to
manipulate in Python.
