    Hi All,

    I've been trying to setup fetchmail to grab my gmail.com e-mails. I don't have access to my server from 'work' but it doesn't seem to be working. My gmail.com has IMAP configured, but the information in the /etc/getmail/*.conf file looks weird -- double ports on the login (myemail.gmail.com:129:943) for example.

    Has anyone configured this via the fetchmail panel?

    Thanks, Danté

    What exactly did you enter into the server field in the fetchmail form? The server name is just something like "server.com". It looks like you entered something like myemail.gmail.com:129 instead of just myemail.gmail.com.

    Hi, Guess I should have put this info into the original question :)

    On Fetchmail Panel:

    Type:                         Tried both Pop and Imap
    Pop3/Imap Server:   gmail.com
    Username:                 dantepasquale
    Password:                  ***********
    Delete emails after retrieval: no
    Destination:                             [email protected]
    Active: Yes

    Here's the /etc/getmail file:

    # message_log = /var/log/getmail.log
    message_log_syslog = 1
    delete = 0
    type = SimplePOP3Retriever
    server = gmail.com
    username = dantepasquale
    password = ***********
    type = MDA_external
    path = /usr/sbin/sendmail
    arguments = ("-i", "-bm", "[email protected]")
    maybe this just isn't correct for gmail :(
