Lightbulb Using Fetchmail!


Hi,
I want do download my pop3 mails on the server so that I can download it
from the server later.
How can this be possible?
I tried to use fetchmail? But the .fetchmailrc file is not in the home
directory.
Can anyone help me on that?


regards
Krishna

Hi,
I used fetchmail. I can download my gmx email on the server and then later I can download it from my windows machine.
This is what happens when I download my Gmx email. It gives out the error but it works.

[rajiv@linux rajiv]$ fetchmail -u krishna_shekhar@gmx.net pop.gmx.net
Enter password for krishna_shekhar@gmx.net@pop.gmx.net:
fetchmail: Unknown login or authentication error on krishna_shekhar@gmx.net@pop.
gmx.net
fetchmail: socket error while fetching from pop.gmx.net
fetchmail: No mail for krishna_shekhar@gmx.net at pop.gmx.net
[rajiv@linux rajiv]$

BUt now the problem is with my softhome email address. It just sits there like this.

rajiv@linux rajiv]$ fetchmail -u krishna_shekhar pop.softhome.net
Enter password for krishna_shekhar@pop.softhome.net:

Thats it!! why is this not downloading!

regards
Krishna
