fetchmail configuration
 
I've installed fetchmail, but I'm noot too sure about its configuration (i.e., what goes into /etc/fetchmailrc). What I want to do is this: I want to fetch my emails from my ISP's POP3 server, and I want to put these emails into the mailbox of the user "lola" on my local Linux machine...

/etc/fetchmailrc:

Code:

set postmaster  root

set no bouncemail                # avoid loss on 4xx errors
                                # on the other hand, 5xx errors get
                                # more dangerous...

##########################################################################
# Hosts to poll
##########################################################################

# Defaults ===============================================================
# Set antispam to -1, since it is far safer to use that together with
# no bouncemail
defaults:
timeout 300
antispam -1
batchlimit 100

poll your-isps-pop-server.com protocol POP3 user "your_username" there with password "your_password" is lola here fetchall

You have to replace your-isps-pop-server.com, your_username and your_password with your own values.
