Re: POP3 & SSL / SSH

> Quick (?) question: How to set up pop3-fetching ( fetchmail on Linux 2.(2|0).[0-9]+ ) with SSH / SSL? What package am I looking for? What problems might I encounter? Never done this, so that's how much I know about this particular topic. Thanks for your input.
in ~/.fetchmailrc (basically from "man fetchmail").

poll <mailserver> via localhost port 32110 proto pop3 user <mailuser> is <locallogin> pass "<password>": 
  preconnect "ssh -f -L 32110:mailserver:110 mailuser@loginserver sleep 20 </dev/null >/dev/null";

or something similar should do the trick.

Linux - the last service pack you'll ever need.
