PROGRAM:

NAME


fetchyahoo - retrieve mail from Yahoo!'s webmail service

SYNOPSIS


fetchyahoo [options]

DESCRIPTION


FetchYahoo is a Perl script that downloads mail from a Yahoo! account to a local mail
spool. It is meant to replace fetchmail for people using Yahoo! mail since Yahoo!'s POP
service no longer free. It downloads messages to a local mail spool, including all parts
and attachments. It then deletes messages unless requested not to. It can also optionally
forward messages to a specified e-mail address and repeat with a given interval.
