fetchmail is a mail-retrieval and forwarding utility; it fetches mail
from remote mailservers and forwards it to your local
machine's delivery system.
I don't have have a pop to get mail from. My DNS is going to send mail for
email@example.com to my machine/IP.
I think I need to use exim ... but the man page for exim is friggen post war
novel. The /etc/eximconfig file is fairly well filled with useful
information. I was just curious if there is anyone here using exim on cygwin
to do a relay and if there are any caviats. I didn't find much on the list.
I check exim list for config help.
