Retrieve messages from a POP server?

Folks:

I know that RT is designed to use sendmail to receive and introduce messages
into the system.

Does anyone know if there is a modification to RT that lets it retrieve its
messages from a POP server instead? Many thanks!

Use fetchmail to retrieve the mail from the pop account, and redeliver it to RT.
Fetchmail can be found at http://www.tuxedo.org/~esr/fetchmail/

Your fetchmailrc file should have something like
poll pop.example.com
proto POP3
username rt password mysecret
mda "/usr/local/rt2/bin/rt-mailgate --queue rt --action correspond
poll pop.example.com
proto POP3
username rt-comment password mysecret
mda "/usr/local/rt2/bin/rt-mailgate --queue rt --action comment

Frequently, folks use ‘fetchmail’ to retrieve mail from a POP server and
shoot it into RT.
