Mail Retriever

A mail retriever is used to retrieve mails from remote mail servers. This is especially useful if you want to retrieve mails from remote mail servers and deliver it to your local mail server or store in your local machine.

Fetchmail and getmail are mail retrievers which enable you to retrieve mails using the standard protocols such as IMAP and POP3. But for Yahoo and Hotmail, there is no support for IMAP/POP3. But not to worry as we have similar programs to retrieve mails from Yahoo and Hotmail known as fetchyahoo and GetLive respectively.
