I'm running getmail version 4.7.6. My getmailrc file is i2/home/daf/.getmail}head -40 getmailrc # # This file contains various examples of configuration sections to use # in your getmail rc file. You need one file for each mail account you # want to retrieve mail from. These files should be placed in your # getmail configuration/data directory (default: $HOME/.getmail/). # If you only need one rc file, name it getmailrc in that directory, # and you won't need to supply any commandline options to run getmail. # # # Example 1: simplest case of retrieving mail from one POP3 server and # storing all messages in a maildir. # [retriever] type = SimplePOP3Retriever server = mail.mindspring.com username = [EMAIL PROTECTED] password = ************** [destination] type = Maildir path = ~/Maildir/ [options] message_log = ~/.getmail/log delete = true Does this help? _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
