'getmail' is intended as a simple replacement for fetchmail. It retrieves mail (either all messages, or only unread messages, or with other advanced options) from POP3, IMAP, or SPDS servers (with or without SSL) for one or more email accounts, and reliably delivers into a qmail-style Maildir, mbox file, or through arbitrary external MDA programs. 'getmail' has advanced support for domain (multidrop) mailboxes, mail filtering and classifying with arbitrary programs, built-in support for TMDA, and other features.
