Just create a ~/.fetchmailrc file containing:


Code:
poll pop.gmail.com proto pop3
        user <username>@gmail.com
        ssl
        pass <password>
        is <local user> here
Change <username>, <password> and <local user> to your gmail username, your gmail password and your local username (if it's different to your gmail username).

$ chmod 600 .fetchmailrc

then:

$ fetchmail
