"Sendmail, Fetchmail, and Mutt are archetypal console based mail programs. Installed by default on most distributions of Linux, these applications are widely regarded for their superb reliability. This howto assumes that all the above are available for configuration on your box, and that you have a dialup connection to the internet with a single mailbox account."

"This section of the Mail Suite is written for those who wish to employ sendmail as a delivery agent, yet do not wish to wander thru an unfathomable maze of configuration details...."

"Fetchmail is a mail retrieval program, and has the ability to run in daemon mode such that fetchmail can poll your isp's mail server at specific intervals to check for and retrieve new mail.

It is advised that you attempt this procedure, before configuring from within X."
