fetchmail alone can fetch external mail to your local email client...

Install fetchmail, create /etc/fetchmailrc with below content

poll mail.fatimah.com.my proto pop3 user "external@xxx.com" with pass "xxxxx" is "internal@xxx.com" here ssl

PS: read more on fetchmail man pages to know about the option


use cron to schedule auto download the mail

*/5 * * * * /usr/bin/fetchmail -f /etc/fetchmailrc &> /dev/null

PS: try secure your /etc/fetchmailrc as it contain your email password

Configure fetchmail via webmin also a good idea too...

Hi! Thanks i try this:

/etc/default/fetchmail (START_DAEMON=yes)
and
/etc/fetchmailrc

set syslog;
set daemon 120;
set postmaster "admin";

poll pop.gmail.com 
protocol pop3 
username "username@gmail.com" there with password "yourpassword" is admin here 
keep ssl 
mda "/usr/bin/procmail -d %T"

I think this config move te mails to procmail but i dont understan how cann i configure procmail to work with virtual user for iredmail... sad How cann i made?

I use iRedMail 0.8.3 with LDAP and i dont understand the tutorial.
I wannt change valu in mysql but i dont find it('transport' column in vmail.mailbox table. set to 'procmail' ). I think wen i use LDAP i cann only in LDAP change but what cann i change?

"Set transport of this user in your MYSQL/LDAP backend.
In MySQL backend, change value of 'transport' column in vmail.mailbox table. set to 'procmail' (this is what we defined in postfix master.cf).
In OpenLDAP backend, change value of 'mtaTransport' attribute of this user."

i connect in phpldapadmin i find the mdatransport word in two table but i dont what cann i doo. ????

why you want to use procmail? iRedMail default use dovecot as MDA...does dovecot not working for you?

Re: fetchmail and procmail for iRedMail 0.8.3 how to

try this....
1. create a dummy account in your iRedMail server and use fetchmail to download all your external mail to that dummy email account
2. use sieve to filter/forward the mails as you like...you can do that in roundcubemail, Settings -> Filters
