NAME

        retchmail.conf - RetchMail configuration file
 

DESCRIPTION

        When   retchmail   starts,   it  first  loads  its  configuration  from
        $HOME/.retchmail/retchmail.conf, which contains basic information about
        all  of the various accounts and servers that you want to download your
        mail from, and deliver your mail to.
 
        The configuration file $HOME/.retchmail/retchmail.conf  is  in  Windows
        "ini"  file format, with sections named in square brackets and a number
        of variable = value pairs within each section.
 
        Here is a sample configuration file:
 
        [POP Servers]
        testuser@example.com = password
        [POP Targets]
        testuser@example.com = localuser
 
        The sample configuration file above contains all of the options  neces‐
        sary   to   run   retchmail   to   automatically   deliver   mail  from
        testuser@example.com to localuser.  when retchmail is invoked.
 
        If you want retchmail to use SSL to encrypt all of the traffic  between
        it  and  your  POP  server, then it’s as easy as adding :995 to the POP
        Servers account name as follows:
 
        [POP Servers]
        testuser@example.com:995 = password
        [POP Targets]
        testuser@example.com:995 = localuser
 
        If you wish to have retchmail use a mail  delivery  agent  (MDA)  other
        then  sendmail  to  deliver  your  mail you may also add a MDA Override
        option to your config file as follows:
 
        [POP Servers]
        testuser@example.com = password
        [MDA Override]
        testuser@example.com = qmail
        retchmail(1)
