Tools for working with WebMail servers (i.e. Yahoo or Hotmail) like with POP3 and IMAP server

Here is a Python library and collection of tools for working with WebMail servers like with mail server that uses other more machine-parsable protocols (like POP3 and IMAP). This library enables you to work with WebMail server like with POP3 or IMAP server. Basically there is support for connecting to webmail, listing folders, retrieving and deleting messages. In foreseeble future there will be support for sending mail (no relay due to technical limitations). Also there is gateway server that allows you to use POP3 client (like Eudora, Bat, Mozilla or :-/ MS Outlook) against these servers. Basic goal of this project includes providing comfortable mail access for users of webmail provides that doesn’t supports POP3 access, and (!) for users that can’t use POP3 due to technical reasons (usually firewalls). This package also includes test WebMail server.
