Updated Cygwin Package: fetchmail-5.9.12-1
Fri Jun 7 06:01:00 GMT 2002
I have updated the version of fetchmail to 5.9.12-1. The tarballs should
be available on a Cygwin mirror near you shortly.
I would like to thank Eric Raymond for his willingness to accommodate
Cygwin and Sunil Shetye for his patch to eliminate the duplicate fetchmail
Fetchmail is a remote mail retrieval and forwarding utility intended
for use over on-demand TCP/IP links, like SLIP or PPP connections.
Fetchmail supports every remote-mail protocol currently in use on the
Internet (POP2, POP3, RPOP, APOP, KPOP, all IMAPs, ESMTP ETRN, IPv6,
and IPSEC) for retrieval. Then Fetchmail forwards the mail through SMTP
so you can read it through your favorite mail client.
See the fetchmail home page for more details:
Please read the README file:
since it covers requirements, installation, known issues, etc.
I would like to thank Madoka Machitani for his pre-compiled fetchmail
and procmail binaries and for the patches necessary for proper operation
under Windows 9x/Me. His work on the Cygwin ports made it much easier
for me to become the Cygwin maintainer.

The setup.exe program will figure out what needs to be updated on your
system and will install newer packages automatically.
