Can someone please point me to a multi-drop Fetchmail tutorial.
What exactly do you want to do? Does this one help you? http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/showthread.php?t=5679&highlight=/etc/fetchmailrc
Hi falko, thanks for you reply...
My objective is to retrieve mail from a catch-all account on a remote server and let my mail server distribute them to the individual mailboxes.
Hope that make sense. I will have a look at that link you have provided.
PS. This is my first attemp at fetchmail.
You can use the above link to fetch the mails from the remote server. But I'm not quite sure how to split up the mails and distribute them to independent mailboxes...
catch all setup is below
set postmaster "catchalltypeguy"
The above works fine for a catch allpop3 acc email is then sorted on the local server the important bit is the to *
platd do you mind explaining it from scratch, ex. the location to create this file.
It goes into /etc/fetchmailrc.
I'm not quite clear on this... others say I should create the fetcmailrc in my home directory for example: /home/user/.fetchmailrc
Or should I leave it as /etc/fetchmailrc because it's mail meant for multiple local users?
PS. distro = FC5
Put it into /etc/fetchmailrc.
