NAME

       axgetmail - automaticaly download messages from the F6FBB BBS

SYNOPSIS

       axgetmail <bbs_callsign>

DESCRIPTION

       Axgetmail scans the message list of specified BBS and downloads all new messages that have
       a destination which belongs to the list of interesting bulletins.  There can be a list for
       each BBS.

       Bulletins are stored into
       /var/ax25/mail/<bbs_callsign>/<message_number>
       For  downloading  personal mail each callsign we want download mail for must have an entry
       in the /etc/ax25/logins file  to  enable  axgetmail  to  determine  the  user  whose  home
       directory   will   be  used  for  storing  personal  messages.  The  HOMEDIR  argument  in
       axgetmail.conf specifies the path relative to user's home  directory  where  the  personal
       mail will be stored. Personal messages are stored into the directory
       $HOME/HOMEDIR/<bbs_callsign>
       If  the  subdirectory  for  any BBS doesn't exist, no personal mail is downloaded for such
       user from the BBS.

       Axgetmail can be run automaticaly by ulistd utility. See ulistd(8).

AUTHORIZATION

       After the  succesful  connect  to  the  BBS  axgetmail  attempts  to  execute  the  script
       /var/ax25/auth_agent  and  redirects  its stdin and stdout to the BBS. The BBS callsign is
       passed as the first command line argument. The  script  should  take  actions  needed  for
       user's  authorization  to  the  BBS.  When the script execution fails, axgetmail continues
       downloading the messages without authorization.
