NAME

       getmail - retrieve messages from one or more POP3, IMAP4, or SDPS mailboxes and deliver to
       a maildir, mboxrd-format mbox file, or external MDA

SYNOPSIS

       getmail [OPTION] ...

DESCRIPTION

       getmail can retrieve messages from POP3, IMAP4, and SDPS mailboxes.  SSL-wrapped POP3  and
       IMAP are also supported.  Single-user and domain (multi-drop) mailboxes are supported.

       getmail  has  built-in  support  for delivering to maildirs, mboxrd-format mbox files, and
       external MDAs.

OPTIONS

       --version
              show program's version number and exit

       -h, --help
              show a short usage summary and exit

       -gDIR, --getmaildir=DIR
              look in DIR for config/data files

       -rFILE, --rcfile=FILE
              load configuration from FILE (may be given multiple times)

       --dump dump configuration and exit (debugging)

       --trace
              print extended trace information (extremely verbose)

       -iFOLDER, --idle=FOLDER
              maintain connection and listen for new messages in FOLDER.   This  flag  will  only

              server supports IMAP4 IDLE (RFC 2177).
