In my continuing effort to belabor this subject, I have another question: why is fetchmail too stupid to remove messages from a POP3 server only after they've gotten old? The "keep" option leaves them there forever (which will eventually exhaust my server resources); and "no keep" always yanks them immediately. There may be reasons for such inflexibility, but it seems like a failing to me, given that most decent MUAs offer this feature. I found a kludge where I could let them accumulate usually and then delete them all at some regular interval (via cron): but it seems if fetchmail is supposed to relieve MUAs of their MRA duties, it should do at least as good a job of performing them.
Sometimes I like to read my emails on my other 'puter, so I like to leave them around for a week or so before removing them from the server. Now I can't, and that makes me sad. Can getmail do this, I wonder? --Jason V.
