POP3 mailgate on Win32

Comments on win32 3.0.9 with fetchmail - might help other novice
installers out there

Have a fully functional WIN2K server install of 3.0.9, as noted earlier
using fetchmail, it’s working great. Decided to install for production
use on a dual CPU - 2GB RAM box - big SCSI drives dedicated to this
role. Installed WIN2K - SP4 - current patches - ran WIN32 3.0.9
installer plus fetchmail. Fetchmail failed with error “MDA returned
nonzero status 127 not flushed”.

Explored many, many avenues trying to identify differences between two
installations. No matter what I tried, where I looked, same error
message. Finally light bulb went on - dev/functional box had cygwin
installed before Autrijus Tang gifted us with fetchmail installer.
Uninstalled all RT components (\ourinternet.…) , installed
www.cygwin.com , re-installed RT 3.0.9, ran fetchmail installer,
edited config, changed ownership and was rewarded with pop mail
processing.

Tomorrow I’ll try to figure out why but tonight I am simply happy to
celebrate success.

Thanks to Jesse’s suggestions, I’ve made available a installer that
integrates POP3 (and perhaps IMAP) accounts to the RT mailgate:

http://dist.ourinet.com/oin-fetchmail-6.2.5.exe
1,826,506 bytes

After installation, please look at this file:
C:\Program Files\OurInternet\Common\fetchmail\README.txt

for how to set things up. It assumes a RT-Win32 installation on the
same machine at port 8284.

You may need to add " ssl " before " mda " in the config file if you’re
using POP3+SSL instead of POP3. Please consult the fetchmail homepage
for more configuration options.

Thanks,
/Autrijus/

Just a suggestion: might want to throw this up on the wiki for other future
win rt users.

I did, as “POP3Mailgate”. Feel free to add a link or copy this mail to
the rt-on-win32 node…

Based on the emails I have seen, it looks like you and Jesse are working
closer on support for the Windows port now. This is true?

Thanks,

Been meaning to send a thank you for making this so easy. 'Course I did
have to read the docs to figure out why I wasn’t the owner of the
rt-mailgate.conf file and couldn’t get the deamon running - can’t
protect us from our personal ignorance :slight_smile:
