Re: [orca-list] GetMailRC or FetchMailRC File

The example and instructions on the linode site are fairly straightforward. You should be able to pretty much use it and substitute what you need to change. You need to know what protocol your mail server expects and the port which you should be able to find in whatever client you are using to access your email currently. the only other thing then is whether you want it stored in a maildir or mbox format (getmail supports both). That may to some degree depend on how you plan to read them later.

I'm having difficulties configuring both getmail and fetchmail RC files.
I plan on downloading all twenty years of my eMail from my ISP before they delete everything in a couple 
weeks, as they are discontinuing eMail.
None of my clients have ever gotten more than a year or two back.
So I'm hoping one of these synchronization utilities will download everything.
I've downloaded a sample RC file from the web, but it's difficult to make sense of it.
I'm hoping someone could send me theirs without the password of course.
