I think its a good idea (actually, almost essential in today's web environment) .
when doing a successive read, there should also be a transparent way to modify and re-submit the same cookies... say, by adding a cookies attribute to the http port and maybe a few functions for modifying them (add, redate, update)
Luis, thanks...will give it a try hopefully soon.
@Maxim, I can't see how you'd do this using successive reads since the http protocol doesn't preserve state. and currently if you open a port, you lose access to the write dialect.
Thanks for the suggestion, Josh! I downloaded Graham's prot-spop3.reb and Gabriele's fsm.r (which I renamed fsm2.r as I couldn't find an fsm2.r - it seemed to work without error). It appears to be able to open two different POP3 mailboxes, but both of them show 0 messages even though I know they both have messages in them.
