fetchmail question(s) RESOLVED


Below is my .fetchmailrc file


set postmaster "postmaster"
poll XXXXXXXX.com with proto POP3 user "XXXXXX@nocclb.com" there
with password "XXXXXX" is ali here options fetchall with warnings 3600

It works quite well, I just want it NOT to delete the messages after it downloads them so that i can access them from my webmail if I want to, and is there a way so that it only downloads the messages that are NOT read "I guess it has something to do with the fetchall option"

Can anyone tell me how to setup fetchmail to get my emails from my gmail account , I mean I must use SSL authenication right..and I must use ports 445 and 995 for pop3 and smtp?

Concerning the first part of my question :

User Options

User options may be placed on their own lines beneath a server option or on the same line as the server option. In either case, the user options follow the user option (defined below).

*

fetchall Orders Fetchmail to download all messages in the queue, including messages that have already been viewed. By default, Fetchmail only pulls down new messages.
*

fetchlimit <number> Only allows a certain number of messages to be retrieved before stopping.
*

flush Tells Fetchmail to delete all previously viewed messages in the queue before retrieving new messages.
*

limit <max-number-bytes> Allows you to specify that only messages below a particular size may be retrieved. This option is useful with slow network links, when a large message will take too long to download.
*

password '<password>' Specifies the password to be used for this user.
*

preconnect "<command>" Tells Fetchmail to execute the specified command before retrieving messages for this user.
*

postconnect "<command>" Tells Fetchmail to execute the specified command after retrieving messages for this user.
*

ssl Allows Fetchmail to collect the message via an encrypted SSL connection, if the server supports this.
*

user "<username>" Sets the username used by Fetchmail to retrieve messages. This option should be listed before any other user options.
