27.11 System Wide Fetchmail
You can have fetchmail, fetchmail, fetchmail, fetchmail, fetchmail collect mail for a number of users and have it locally delivered to them, using the system wide fetchmail.
On Debian create
/etc/fetchmailrc and add the appropriate
set postmaster "kayon" set bouncemail set no spambounce set properties "" set daemon 60 poll mail.togaware.com with proto pop3 user 'email@example.com' with pass 'XXXX' is 'kayon' here user 'firstname.lastname@example.org' with pass 'YYYY' is 'tog' here
Then start up the fetchmail daemon:
$ wajig start fetchmail
The daemon only starts if it finds
/etc/fetchmailrc and will
then run as user fetchmail rather than as root.
