Automatically retrieve received emails into Mail
Authored by: nathanst on Nov 29, '03 12:55:04PM
After a reboot is it necessary to re-execute sudo service gopher start?
    It shouldn't be, because you are placing the file where all services go, and OS X automatically starts them. But, I haven't tested this.
Does it have to be a tcp stream connection? Would a udp connection work? If so, it should be possible to use the more apt comsat/biff port instead.
    You can really should be able to use any port or service. For instance, you could create a special web page that does the same thing, and then you wouldn't have to start any other services at all.
A question: What do you mean "Put the following in~/bin/check-mail"? There is no "bin" directory in any "Users" folder. Do you mean create "~/bin/check-mail"?
    Not my hint...but yes, that's what the author means. You should probably keep this in your User folder, but you can really put it anywhere out of the way.
