mpop

POP3 mail retriever

Description

mpop is a fast and simple fetchmail replacement to retrieve mail from POP3 servers. Its main features are header based mail filtering, multiple authentication methods, TLS encrypted connections or delivery.

There are a few things mpop can do that fetchmail can't or that it does better:
 - mpop never ever tries to parse mail information except for the
   envelope-from address, which is the bare minimum that it has to do.
 - mpop never ever alters mail messages except for adding a "Received"
   header, which is the bare minimum that it has to do.
 - mpop uses several techniques (including pipelining) to reduce the
   POP3 protocol overhead. It is therefore much faster than fetchmail.
 - By default, mpop stores the mail UIDs (unique ids) in one file per
   account. You can poll different mail accounts in parallel.
 - The progress output is nicer ;-)
 - You can pipe the headers of a mail through a filter that decides if
   the mail should be downloaded, skipped, or deleted. This allows one
   to delete junk mail from a POP3 server without downloading the
   entire message.
 - mpop can deliver mails directly to mbox and maildir mail folders.
