    getting qmail to grab messages from other pops (belongs in mail)


    (mods please move to mail forum as soon as it's back up, please forgive my posting here)

    hello--

    I've been looking around for this but can't seem to find it :

    how can I get qmail to grab mail via pop off other accounts and deliver it to a user's local queue so all the user's mail can be received through one address ?

    please point me in the right direction,

    thanks

    qmail probably won't do that at all. "fetchmail" is afaik the standard client for pop3.

    Charles Cazabon rewrote fetchmail in python as getmail to get rid of some of the bugs inherent in fetchmail. A lot of qmail users use this instead.

    By the way, what happened to the Mail Servers forum?!

    EDIT: And what happened to ~200 of my posts?!?

    Now that you point me at this... iirc I have had some more posts too (3k6+ ?)...

    Well, the database server must have eaten them when crashing on friday night...

    "Mail Server Forums" has been brought into discussion, we are investigating this already..
