Really, did you even try to do a search for ruby and POP on Google?? If something is not working from the first hit that you get on Google when you search for Ruby POP, will you tell us what errors you are getting.

I know I'm going to get flamed (again) about pointing this out, but please at least do some basic level of search before asking the group here.

Anyway, I've done the work for you. Please look at:
http://www.ruby-doc.org/stdlib/libdoc/net/pop/rdoc/classes/Net/POP3.html

http://www.google.com.sg/search?hl=en&q=ruby+pop3+&btnG=Search&meta=

If your mail is on Gmail (that uses ssl), the gmailer lib will make
your life easier :

   gmailer :
   http://rubyforge.org/projects/gmailutils
   http://rubyforge.org/docman/view.php/869/194/README

Example :

require 'rubygems'
require 'gmailer'

def import
   count=0
   GMailer.connect('jobifier', 'password001') do |g|
     g.messages(:label => "inbox") do |ml|
       ml.each_msg do |conversation|
         Email.create!(
             :title => conversation.subject,
             :text => conversation.body,
             :sender => conversation.sender,
             :sender_email => conversation.sender_email,
             :reply_email => (conversation.reply_email.blank?) ?
conversation.sender_email : conversation.reply_email
         )
         count += 1
         conversation.archive
       end
     end #connect
   end
   count
end
