Re: [Nmh-workers] Question about slocal

If you're willing to use fetchmail, you don't necessarily also need an additional MTA installation -- just point fetchmail at slocal directly. I used something like the following stanza in .fetchmailrc for years:

poll po12.mit.edu no dns proto imap user y mda "/usr/local/bin/slocal -verbose"

I included the quotes for the `-verbose', which I included because I liked seeing the slocal output (where it filed things) in the logs. Many [n]mh users fetchmail into procmail instead, so they can use an advanced spam filter. I just added spam detection rules directly to my .maildelivery file (less powerful, but simpler).

I hate to repost, but although my first email showed up in the list archives, I'm not sure it got sent out.

I want to run nmh on my laptop but I don't have an MTA installed. Using inc to get email from my two POP accounts works just fine but I would prefer to run everything through slocal so that I can filter it. Is there a way to do this without installing an MTA and then using something like fetchmail to grab from the POP accounts?
