I used fetchmail and put the stream to sendmail/postfix on the 25 port.
It could hand it to maildrop for sure. I don't think that fetchmail
can do it alone. How do you configured on nokia?

I do it regularly from port 995 with getmail.

Looks intriguing. But cannot find proper docs. Have you installed it
on 770? (Scirocco in my case.)

As stream or from file? I use mbox to store. Mutt could pipe. Has an
option to set outbound server/service/sendmail.

Defer option in postfix or similar sounds little better?

Python 2.4. How big nmh is in real life? Deb file is 1.6.

OK. Just thought. I might have them both. Looking for info on the net.
What do you get with nmh in this moment?
Hey! What os? Does it work on scirocco?
