[fetchmail]IMAP stay connected mode

2005-10-21 12:07:54
Is there a fetchmail mode for IMAP that allows it to stay connected to the IMAP server between checks?

Reason I ask, is because the IMAP server I use requires SecurID... in other words, my IMAP password is "PASSWD/SECURID". Since the SECURID number changes every minute, my IMAP password is essentially different every minute.

So, because fetchmail disconnects after each check, I can't store my "password" in .fetchmailrc.

BUT... if there's a way to tell fetchmail to stay connected to the IMAP server and simply check for email every XX minutes without logging out, then I believe it would work. I know staying connected works, because that's how Pine does it.
