    I want to download my emails using the command line and thought I'd try getmail.
    I've set up the directories it needs and tried to figure out the correct settings but get this message:-

    I don't understand these messages.
    getmail version 4.30.2
    Python version 2.7.3 (default, Sep 26 2012, 21:51:14) 
    [GCC 4.7.2]
    Unhandled exception follows:
    File "/usr/bin/getmail", line 721, in main
    success = go(configs)
    File "/usr/bin/getmail", line 299, in go
    File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/getmailcore/", line 746, in abort
    AttributeError: 'SimplePOP3SSLRetriever' object has no attribute 'conn'
    Please also include configuration information from running getmail
    with your normal options plus "--dump".
    This is how my getmailrc file looks:-
    type = SimplePOP3SSLRetriever
    server =
    port = 110
    username = [email protected]
    password = ******
    type = Maildir
    path = ~/mail/
    verbose = 0
    delete = true
    message_log = ~/.getmail/log-foreman-example
    Any help would be very welcome.
