Retrieving Emails From Remote Servers With fetchmail (Debian Etch)
Posted on: 06/01/2007 05:24 PM

Howtoforge posted a new guide about retrieving emails from remote servers with fetchmail under Debian GNU/Linux 4.0

Fetchmail is a program for retrieving emails from remote servers. Imagine you have five email accounts on five different servers. Of course, you do not want to connect to each of them to get your emails. This is where fetchmail comes into play. If you have a user account on a Linux server, you can make fetchmail download emails from remote servers and put them into just one mailbox (the one of your Linux user), from where you can retrieve them with your email client (e.g. Thunderbird or Outlook).
