Thanks, Dave.
You're fine just using Fetchmail - after that, IMHO, you're overcomplicating it with maildrop :) I do fetchmail like so: /usr/local/bin/fetchmail -s -f /home/root/fetchmail/fetchmail2.rc where fetcmail2.rc contains: poll mail.com.com proto POP3 user "username" pass "password" smtpname [EMAIL PROTECTED] fetchall Basically grab anything from the remote user's mailbox and redirect it via smtp to '[EMAIL PROTECTED]'. Then your SMTP setup takes care of the delivery as if all those emails came in to your localuser originally. Rick
