    Hi guys, reading this HOWTO http://www.howtoforge.com/debian_etch_fetchmail, I need some help of how I could apply this, but instead of system users I use virtual users with Courier IMAP/mysql (using vmail as system user inside /home/vmail/mydomain/user/.maildir/).

    I've searched a lot about fetchmail but no examples about what I need.

    Can someone point me to the right direction?

    Thanks in advance.

    This tutorial works for virtual users as well.

    With no Modification? Are you sure?
    Also i prefer to use maildrop instead of Procmail.

    For what i see in the HOWTO it delivers the mails into the system accounts folders, which is not my case needed.

    Is why i ask and have the doub...

    This is the conf. of my fetchmailrc (in Gentoo):

    And the logs says:

    Any Tip?

    Thanks for the reply. That looks like it could work.
    But getmail has a global configuration file? (like /etc/fetchmailrc) so i could define many users inside it without putting the configuration file in a home foler (cause remember i have virtual users and i have only vmail as home user) or just putting it inside root home willl work?

    Well, reading a little bit i guess I must create a conf. file for every mail account for the virtual users of my local courier IMAP.
