NAME
       getmail - retrieve messages from	one or more POP3, IMAP4, or SDPS mail-
       boxes and deliver to a maildir, mboxrd-format mbox  file,  or  external
       MDA

SYNOPSIS
       getmail [OPTION]	...

DESCRIPTION
       getmail	can  retrieve  messages	 from POP3, IMAP4, and SDPS mailboxes.
       SSL-wrapped POP3	and IMAP are also supported.  Single-user  and	domain
       (multi-drop) mailboxes are supported.

       getmail	has built-in support for delivering to maildirs, mboxrd-format
       mbox files, and external	MDAs.
