Norm will continue to use this domain, but doesn’t want to transfer from his
current email provider to Gmail until he is sure that he can fetch and send via

Are you still sticking with the dad.org domain name when sending your
emails, or will you be gaining a new ...@gmail.com email address?
I don't know. Maybe Dave, who set up the account for me knows.
How do you currently fetch messages so they reach nmh?
For example, inc(1) has POP3 support, or some use a non-nmh program like
fetchmail(1). If we know what you currently use then we can try and
minimise the changes.
I periodically call fetchmail with:
fetchmail --limit $maxSize --limitflush --silent --timeout $timeout -f
and the contents of /root/.fetchmailrc are:
set logfile = /tmp/fetchmail.log
poll imap.rawbw.com with protocol IMAP
user "soft" with pass PASSWORD is "norm" here
#mda "/usr/lib/sendmail -oem"
where PASSWORD is a string that I don't think I should include in an Email to
a wide audience. It was given to me, a couple decades ago, by my Internet
Is there somewhere that the basic ideas of using nmh with Gmail are
Well, until those that know better arrive, there's mhlogin(1) that's all
about gaining the credentials that allow nmh to access Gmail when
running send(1). And send's man page briefly mentions Gmail as an aside
when explaining another feature. But I think getting from those to a
working system will need more assistance from this list.
What's the output of âinc -versionâ as some features you may need are
only in later versions of nmh.
