Retchmail 1.1.1

RetchMail is the world's most stupidly fast POP3 retriever.
Eric S. Raymond's Fetchmail is a full-featured, robust, well-documented remote-mail retrieval and forwarding utility intended to be used over on-demand TCP/IP links (such as SLIP or PPP connections).

Retchmail project supports every remote-mail protocol now in use on the Internet: POP2, POP3, RPOP, APOP, KPOP, all flavors of IMAP, ETRN, and ODMR. It can even support IPv6? and IPSEC.

RetchMail is the world's most stupidly fast POP3 retriever.

It is almost completely unlike fetchmail: RetchMail lacks features, isn't particularly robust (although it won't delete a message until sendmail says it was delivered okay), has nearly no documentation, and is actually fast.

Thanks to PatrickPatterson's WvSSLStream?, RetchMail also supports POP3-SSL, which is much more secure than the RPOP, APOP, KPOP and other password obfuscation routines currently en vogue to hide your password. SSL has the nice feature that not only is your password secure going across the wire, but so is the rest of your mail.
