    Fetch POP3 email without GW client

    GW2012 on OES 2 (SLES11)
    is there anyway to fetch mail from a POP3 server ?

    I know I can set this up in the client but that means client must run all
    the time

    on Netware there used to be a pop3 agent

    Perhaps something can be done with linux compenents like fetch mail but how
    would I get it into GW then?

    Using fetchmail:
    #--------------------------
    set postmaster "someuser@domainname.com"

    set daemon 300

    poll pop3.emailserver.com with proto POP3 and options no dns
    localdomains domainname.com
    user user@domain.com pass "Passw0rd" is user@domainname.com here options
    ssl
    #--------------------------

    Use ssl if the remote server needs it.

    I hope this helps.

    will that send the collected mail to GW ?

    If a tool like fetch mail pulling in messages over pop, but then act as an
    IMAP client to populate a GW account
