Multiple pop3 accounts with Pine?
I've been wracking my brain trying to figure this one out: Is it possible to use Pine with more than one pop3 account? And if not, are there any command line email programs that do?
I would recommend setting up an IMAP server, and download all your POP3 e-mail with fetchmail. ;)
fetchmail is able to download mail, and forward it (for example, to your postfix/sendmail server). Postfix could drop the message in your ~/Maildir/ with procmail or maildrop. (both have a filtering language to sort the mail, and add spam checks / use spamassassin). An IMAP server, for example courier-imap, is able to retreive all messages from your ~/Maildir/.
And there are a lot of IMAP clients ;) including web based onces ;) (ie. you could have webmail at your own machine)
this is a bit advanced, but worth all the effort if you want something better :p
Know of a good place where I can find some documentation on doing this?
I've got a lot of help from this site: http://www.firstpr.com.au/web-mail/ but I found it very confusing. But if there is anything about this idea you're confused about, please ask :) it took me quite some time before I understood the entire concept :p
I just thought I could explain a little more. Because that link has way to much details :) ..this story got a little long, but I think it's useful too :p
postfix + imap
There are 2 ways you could receive your e-mail:
Sending e-mail can be done very easy; you don't need to SMTP of your ISP anymore, you can just use localhost :)
you can use any IMAP capable mail client. You could use outlook express from another Windows workstation, or KMail, Mozilla-mail, mutt, or Squirllmail (webmail). It doesn't matter which client you use, the e-mail will look exactly the same! :) (even the read-status, etc.. ;))
message filtering examples
From the ~/.mailfilter file, I sort all messages. Maildrop rules apply to the message text.
