Automatically forward remote IMAP messages


Hi everyone, I think this is the right forum for this question, but please send me to the correct one it's not!
Anyways, I was wondering if you could give me some pointers on which software and how to configure it to automatically forward messages from a remote IMAP server to another email address. Here's what I'd like to happen: messages are not deleted/purged and attachments are not forwarded. Here's the main issue which prevented me from using a kmail filter: this IMAP server kills its connections after 1 hr, so somthing that checked every 5 minutes or so and closed the connection would be awesome! TIA

http://fetchmail.berlios.de/ would fetchmail handle what you need to do ?

or can you configure forwarding on the mail server itself ? I can configure my mail server to automatically forward mail to a different address, with an option to deliver locally or not. or to forward mail to multiple locations.
I don't know how much control you have over the initial IMAP server so I don't know if that's an option or not.

Unfortunately, its not my server; i have no root access.

So did you even bother to look at fetchmail to see what it does ? in your situation it would seem the appropriate answer..
