    Yahoo & Hotmail


    I am trying to find a script that can download Hotmail & Yahoo e-mails. I can find plenty of Perl examples. However, I am looking for a Python example. Best I can tell these scripts phrase HTML output from the sites. Thus, changes to the site would break the code. Does anyone know of a better method? Even if this is the only way I would like to know if someone else has done this, because I hate reinventing the wheel.

    That's the only way I've seen it ... it would be nice to do it a better way tho =)
    And I'd be interested in using it too.

    If hotmail or yahoo had a publicaly available API something like googles you could use SOAP (and or XML-RPC) to talk to that without much of a problem at all! But they don't , or at least one that i'm aware of..
