Hello there linux guru's and gifted linux users

I'm a struggling linux user forced to setup a pc with fetchmail service.

Now I'm confused where to begin.

create a .fetchmailrc file in the root of your homedirectory with something like
Code:
poll pop.provider.net protocol pop3 username "jsmith" password "secret1"
in
then run fetchmail in daemon mode to poll for every <seconds> seconds


Code:
fetchmail -d 300
poll every 5 minutes

see CONFIGURATION EXAMPLES in man fetchmail

check it is not installed already.

Code:
rpm -q fetchmail

if not then get it from here

Code:
ftp://rpmfind.net/linux/redhat/9/en/os/i386/RedHat/RPMS/fetchmail-6.2.0-3.i386.rpm
and test install first

Code:
rpm -ivh --test ftp://rpmfind.net/linux/redhat/9/en/os/i386/RedHat/RPMS/fetchmail-6.2.0-3.i386.rpm

if there are no complaints, remove the --test flag.

run

Code:
rpm -ivh ftp://rpmfind.net/linux/redhat/9/en/os/i386/RedHat/RPMS/fetchmail-6.2.0-3.i386.rpm
then it is installed.

if you are using yum for package installation, just do

Code:
yum install fetchmail
