    sorry for the strange title of the post, I couldn't quite find a better one.
    What I mean is this: I am hosting a domain where my primary email address is on, on my root server with an ispconfig installation. now I'd like to get alle my other mail accounts onto this system. so I have a single web interface and all my accounts like those on hotmails, etc. get filtered and scanned too. BUT if I use squirrelmail and its fetchmail plugin those mails will not get scanned and filtered, they simply land inside my Inbox and thats it...

    for the moment I have all my other accounts forward me copies of all messages, but wouldn't it be more elegant if I could fetch them? what do you think? anyone doing something similar like this or am I just not making any sense?

    I don't know how the Squirrelmail plugin works, but I'd try to use fetchmail itself.
    You have to create /etc/fetchmailrc, which looks like this:

    Code:
    # /etc/fetchmailrc for system-wide daemon mode
    # This file must be chmod 0600, owner fetchmail
    
    # Daemon configuration
    # These two are set in /etc/default/fetchmail
    #set daemon        300                # Pool every 5 minutes
    #set syslog                        # log through syslog facility
    set postmaster  root
    
    set no bouncemail                # avoid loss on 4xx errors
                                    # on the other hand, 5xx errors get
                                    # more dangerous...
    
    ##########################################################################

    # Defaults ===============================================================
    # Set antispam to -1, since it is far safer to use that together with
    # no bouncemail
    defaults:
    timeout 300
    antispam -1
    batchlimit 100
    
    poll hotmail.com protocol POP3 user "blablabla" there with password "blubbblubb" is web1_joe here fetchall
