Wrapper for getmail, providing daemon mode and encrypted passwords.

Project description

sources pypi documentation license


Do not use this software yet: it was one of the first projects I wrote in Python, it is buggy, it is poorly designed. I do use it, but I know its bugs and limitations.

I have a full rewrite in mind, but this is not my priority, so the release date (if any) should be quite far in the future. This rewrite can be tracked in branch next.
