I just recently setup fetchmail on my lenny box. Went to the Falko HOW-TO on 
sourceforge, copied one of his lines for fetchmailrc, changed it to my info, 
added the rest of my emails, domain & ISP, and all my mail started coming in 
to my local user account!. It changed my kmail setup to 1 account, from 8.
What was easier about getmail?
