fetchmail configuration file
fetchmail is a mail-retrieval and forwarding utility; it fetches mail from remote mailservers and forwards it to
your local (client) machine’s delivery system. You can then handle the retrieved mail using normal mail user
agents such as mutt(1), elm(1) or Mail(1). The fetchmail utility can be run in a daemon mode to repeatedly poll
one or more systems at a specified interval.
Below is a sample configuration of $HOME/.fetchmailrc for gmail.
The user specifies email login name; password specifies the login password, and is ‘david’ means you login the linux system as user david. If the login name isn’t correct, “unkown user” error will show when retrieving email.
