just in case you haven't already used it there were three webmail systems
being used in Trinity College.
the oldest was a websystem labelled as eudora although not necessarily
having anything to do with that company but I think they finally hid it
away, i just cannot find it anymore.
One is a fairly crappy commercial system you can see here
Another one running IMP is here
(IMP usually gets mentioned on ILUG
right after squirellmail)

sometimes they allow you to export your whole mailbox for download, it
varies on the setup of course. Trinity allow you to download your mail a
as an .mbx file.

Does Online.ie still allow POP access to their Webmail (which runs IMP) or
was that always something unofficial that John 'Kate' Looney left enabled?
I haven't use my Online.ie account in ages because they provide free
forwarding which works beautifully for the rare occassions I want to use
my online.ie mail address, you might consider giving them a mention.
