I don't know if I am posting to the right group or not so please
forgive me for this and for my ignorance of using sendmail. I connect
to my lab using ppp, so I defined mailhost as the mail server of our
lab. So, sending out mails is not a problem, as they get delivered to
the mailhost. My question is how to configure sendmail so that when
I turn on the computer it should establish a connection with the
mail server and get any new mail from it and keep polling it
with specified intervals.
I know that under windows there is something like this called Eudora.
Is something similar available for x86 or can I configure sendmail or
even uucp to do this. I would like to leave the mail on the server, just get
a copy of the new and/or old mail from the server. Note that the
server is running pop. Note that I want a solution which does not involve
my Lab system administrator!!!
Any help will be highy appreciated.
