Fetchmail and Multiple Mailbox in 1 A/c


Hello,

I am having trouble getting fetchmail to work in a desired way.

I need to poll an Exchange Server where my '1' account has multiple mailboxes. Fetchmail is able to pick up those emails in the primary mailbox but not the mail box I need.

This is the command I am using:

poll mail.example.com protocol imap username "myUID" password "myPassword"

I have tried search but have found no solution to be able to pull mail from the secondary mailboxes.

Help is appreciated.

Regards

-Ibad

Are these mail accounts aliases from the 1 mailbox, or separate mail accounts with login and pass?

Kind regards

its one username and it has 3 mailboxes

abc@example.com
rst@example.com
zxf@example.com

each 'alias' or mailbox has its own distinct: inbox, sent, outbox, drafts etc.
I can configure thunderbird, mail and outlook to pick just one of these mailboxes with the 1 username and password. Need to do the same with Fetchmail.
