Question automated pop3 retrieval


I need a way to retrieve email from a pop server automatically.
Also, it would need to store the email in mbox format. I am setting up an email archive and would like to automate the process as much as possible. Thanks.

# Common e-mail tools
sendmail - postfix - sends mail to local users (and internet when configured correctly)
fetchmail - gets mail from internet accounts (non-Hotmail type)
procmail - sorts and delivers into separate mailboxes
mutt - mail client that sucks less than all the others
