getmail (http://pyropus.ca/software/getmail) with "passwordeval" receiver option so that the password can be received from an external program instead of being stored clear text in the config file. Here's an example from a getmail config file, using gnupg: [retriever] type = SimpleIMAPSSLRetriever server = imap.gmail.com port = 993 username = firstname.lastname@example.org passwordeval = gpg --no-tty -d ~/.email@example.com About branches in this repository: * "passwordeval" branch has the passwordeval option implemented on top of the upstream changes. * "upstream" branch tracks upstream tarball releases. * "master" branch has additional changes including script to ease "upstream" branch updating and this readme change. Orginal readme -------------- getmail version 4 -- a flexible, extensible mail retrieval system with support for POP3, IMAP4, SSL variants of both, maildirs, mboxrd files, external MDAs, arbitrary message filtering, single-user and domain-mailboxes, and many other useful features. getmail is Copyright (C) 1998-2009 Charles Cazabon. getmail is licensed for use under the GNU General Public License version 2 (only). See docs/COPYING for specific terms and distribution information. getmail version 4 requires Python version 2.3.3 or later. You can have several installed versions of Python peacefully co-existing, see python.org for details. To install: getmail v.4 uses the standard Python distutils. Do the following as a regular user: python setup.py build Then (probably as root), do: python setup.py install This will install the software as follows: -the four scripts will be installed in <PREFIX>/bin/ -the Python files will be installed under the site-packages directory of your Python installation (typically /usr/local/lib/pythonXXX or /usr/lib/pythonXXX, but may be elsewhere -- this is detected automatically) -the documentation will be installed under <PREFIX>/doc/getmail-<version>/ -the man pages will be installed under <PREFIX>/man/ <PREFIX> is the directory Python was configured to install under (typically either /usr/local/ or /usr/, but may be another value). See the file docs/documentation.html or docs/documentation.txt for details on installing files to directories other than these defaults. The four scripts included in the package (getmail, getmail_maildir, getmail_mbox, and getmail_fetch) will have their "#!"-interpreter line automatically modified to invoke the Python interpreter you run the setup script with. If you later remove this version of Python, and the newer version does not provide a link to the interpreter with that name, you will have to modify the scripts or re-run the setup.py script. See the HTML documentation for details on setting up and using getmail. It is included in the docs subdirectory of the distribution tarball, and will be installed in <PREFIX>/doc/getmail-<version>/ (by default). 10-second summary for personal use: 1. Install getmail 2. mkdir -m 700 ~/.getmail 3. Create ~/.getmail/getmailrc by following the instructions. 4. Run `getmail`. See docs/BUGS for instructions on reporting bugs in this software.
