ssl/tls when submitting mail to smtp-servers. that means there is none,
but it's on the list since ever and soon to be implemented, right?
Why would fetchmail need to wrap TLS around its SMTP connection? The
common use is to run fetchmail on the same machine as the SMTP server
and forward to localhost, where TLS makes no difference.
- now, there's this guy who hosts some domains and mailboxes for friends
and wants them to be able to gather all their email to one centralized
imap-server. for laziness in checking mail from more than one account...
however this guy doesn't want 20 fetchmail-daemons running 24/7 for every
if i see this correctly, best way would be telling users to
smtp-forward - but wouldn't it be nice if fetchmail could go in
multi-user-mode, reading /home/*/.fetchmailrc and take it all in just one
No. Fetchmail has no business checking "outside" data. What you want can
easily be achieved by a shell script.
