OK, but the wrong destination...?
Authored by: el bid on Dec 17, '01 04:10:29AM

Fetchmail and procmail are definitely the right way to go, IMHO. But I think we're only doing half the job here, and confusing Mail.app.

Mail.app has the option to set up accounts that collect mail from a standard UNIX account, where the mail accumulates in /var/spool/mail/<username> (or /var/mail, which seems to be Mail.app's default for this option). I believe that this is where fetchmail should be depositing the mail it collects. Then "Get New Mail", either from the Menu or as a button on the UI, will fetch mail from here. And I think the option to "Collect mail every <x> minutes" will also honour this.
