Experienced Unix users may wish to use the Fetchmail program to retrieve mail from our servers and store it on their own computer.

Note that we only recommend Fetchmail to experienced Unix users who are already familiar with it; Fetchmail is not an appropriate e-mail program for average users.

Fetchmail settings

Placing the following lines in your .fetchmailrc file would create a secure SSL connection to our servers:

poll mail.tigertech.net with proto pop3
  user "address@example.com" there with password "mypass" ssl
    is username here

In this example, you would replace "mypass" with your e-mail password for address@example.com, and replace "username" with the appropriate username on your own computer. (The username must be all lowercase).

For more details, see the Fetchmail manual pages.
