  String host = "192.168.10.205";
  String user = "komal";
  String password = "komal";

  // Get system properties
  Properties properties = System.getProperties();

  // Get the default Session object.
  Session session = Session.getDefaultInstance(properties);

  // Get a Store object that implements the specified protocol.
  Store store = session.getStore("pop3");

  //Connect to the current host using the specified username and password.
  store.connect(host, user, password);

  //Create a Folder object corresponding to the given name.
  Folder folder = store.getFolder("inbox");

  // Open the Folder.
  folder.open(Folder.READ_WRITE);

  Message[] message = folder.getMessages();


  for (int a = 0; a < message.length; a++) {
  System.out.println("-------------" + (a + 1) + "-----------");
  System.out.println(message[a].getSentDate());

  Multipart multipart = (Multipart) message[a].getContent();
  //System.out.println(multipart.getCount());

  for (int i = 0; i < multipart.getCount(); i++) {
  //System.out.println(i);
  //System.out.println(multipart.getContentType());
  BodyPart bodyPart = multipart.getBodyPart(i);
  InputStream stream = bodyPart.getInputStream();
  BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(stream));

  while (br.ready()) {
  System.out.println(br.readLine());
  }
  System.out.println();
  }
  System.out.println();
  }
  folder.close(true);
  store.close();
