Grab Email from other servers on internet
((( Moving from another section - Maybe more server related )))
Using Fedora 5 and/or 6
I have various POP3 or IMAP accounts scattered accross the internet. I use my MS Outlook (which I would like to migrate to Thunderbird someday) to create several accounts trees. A couple downfalls I have of my "scattered" accounts are as follows:
- No control over "caught" spam (can't view)
- Poor AntiVirus engines (or none at all) provided by internet account
- Email storage is kept on workstation(s) and not in central storage
- Workstation AV and SPAM engines take up resources on PC
- Some accounts have limited storage space
Being a casual Linux Desktop user, I've of course heard wonderful things about Postfix, SpamAssassin, ClamAV... But I will have to warn you...I'm an MS Exchange fanatic! My goal here, is to collect those POP3 or IMAP accounts (maybe 10-15), scan with a dependable Linux Spam and AV engine, then store them in a Linux mail server service, without having Outlook store them on my workstation.
So I guess the ultimate goal here is to take my mail off the POP3/IMAP servers, and create a central storage, with SPAM and AV scanning, and use a client to connect to the email (Squirlmail, Outlook, Thunderbird)
Can this be done with Sendmail? Postfix? QMail? Any other vairants?
(P.S. -- I know this can be done with MS Exchange, I've done it a while ago.)
