Thanks a lot for your reply, fetchmail seems just right for the job. I'll try Clam together with amavis, or is there a better way to run it? What MTA would you recommend (sendmail is too insecure)? Can I just put the mail in the respective user's home directory with fetchmail, and configure their MUA's to get mail from there? Or do I put it in /var/mail/<username>? Can I run an MTA in a chroot environment with an unprivileged UID? Am I asking too much? I read the fetchmail FAQ, but I still don't have a clue. My users are lazy, so they shouldn't notice a change at all, if possible. Needless to say, I have little experience with mail servers, I never had one.
