Dovecot download pop3/imap from other server(s)


Hi ppl,

I've configured my Dovecot server as a IMAP-mail server.
Evertying works fine.

Is there a way, with Dovecot or other service/deamon, to download emails from other POP3/IMAP servers to my IMAP-account?

And is there a service/deamon (+ webinterface) where u can configure the "Rules" server-side instead of your client (ie Outlook).

Greetz,

Ali

Never mind, I found solutions for both answers.

First question, use fetchmail

Second question, use procmail to filter

That is the setup I use. I think it is most appropriate.

Just as a remark wrt the first question: I *know* there's an IMAP to IMAP utility around somewhere.
