Re: Spoon feeding Exchange with Sendmail
Fetchmail will do pretty much everything you're saying "out of the box",
although you'll need to make a .fetchmailrc for it which in a config file that
looks alot like a script language sometimes.
The docs/examples are pretty straightforward. I just used it for a customer
transitioning from webmail/pop configured on their webspace to their own debian
server. 30 mailboxes, which although we only ran it for a week (to double check
DNS transition) should have ran forever mostly fine. Piece of cake.
You can even set it to retrieve muliple recipients from a single pop box, which
I've also done, and much as the docs say, really don't like too much.
Fetchmail can either run sendmail (ie, the "sendmail" command that is used for
most on the server mtas) or forward direct via smtp to wherever you want
(including straight into an exchange smtp service).
