GETMAIL for Windows

Easily download mail to your harddrive from the command line!

I wanted a way to create some automated scripts which included downloading and processing mail from a pop3 mailbox. I wrote getmail to fill this need.

Getmail can be used to automatically extract MIME encoded or UU encoded binary files as it downloads your mail, and is the perfect companion to BLAT, which sends mail from the command line.

The most recent version compiled is version 1.33. It was released on April 4, 2002.

Getmail is free for non-commercial use. If you use it in a business environment, then a fee of $50 USD is payable to Tim Charron. This payment can be made online (via a secure server) here.
