    I'm using fetchmail to retrieve emails from our remote hosting server to local server to deliver to the user mailbox. We have more than 250 users and fetchmail has 250 accounts in .fetchmailrc file[/B][/B] and it takes more than 1 hour to fetch emails.

    I need a solution to fetch emails immediately from remote server to all users at the same time.

    Any solution? Please help.:(:(:(:(

    Personally I prefer getmail over fetchmail. getmail is a more modern softeare for the same job.

    With getmail, each account has its own config file and yo pass the config file as commandline option to getmail, so you can basically run as many instances as you like (and as your server can handle) at the same time starting them with a shell script and sending them to background.
