Full description '''Fetchmail''' is a full-featured, robust'''Fetchmail''' is a full-featured, robust, well-documented remote-mail retrieval and forwarding utility intended to be used over on-demand TCP/IP links (such as SLIP or PPP connections). It supports every remote-mail protocol now in use on the Internet: POP2, POP3, RPOP, APOP, KPOP, all flavors of IMAP, ETRN, and ODMR. It can even support IPv6 and IPSEC. Fetchmail retrieves mail from remote mail servers and forwards it via SMTP, so it can then be read by normal mail user agents such as [[mutt]], [[elm]] or BSD Mail. It allows all your system MTA's filtering, forwarding, and aliasing facilities to work just as they would on normal mail. Fetchmail can start automatically and silently as a system daemon at boot time. You can edit its dotfile directly, or use the interactive GUI configurator (fetchmailconf) supplied with the distribution.hmailconf) supplied with the distribution.
