Summary: Full-Featured POP and IMAP Mail Retrieval Daemon
Fetchmail is a robust and well-documented remote mail retrieval and
forwarding utility intended to be used over on-demand TCP/IP links
(such as SLIP or PPP connections).

Fetchmail retrieves mail from remote mail servers and forwards it to
your local machine's delivery system, so it can be read by normal mail
user agents, such as mutt, elm, pine, (x)emacs/gnus, or mailx.

fetchmailconf, an interactive GUI configurator suitable for end-users,
is included in the fetchmailconf package.

* Sat May 08 2021 Dirk Müller <>
  - update to 6.4.19:
    * fetchmailconf: properly catch and report option parsing errors
    * LMTP: do not try to validate the last component of a UNIX-domain LMTP socket
      as though it were a TCP port.
* Tue Apr 06 2021 Dirk Müller <>
  - update to 6.4.18:
    * fetchmailconf: fetchmail 6.4.16 added --sslcertfile to the configuration dump,
      but fetchmailconf support was incomplete in Git 7349f124 and it could not
      parse sslcertfile, thus the user settings editor came up empty with console
      errors printed.  Fix configuration parser in fetchmailconf.
    * fetchmailconf: do not require fetchmail for -V. do not require Tk (Tkinter)
      for -d option. This is to fail more gracefully on incomplete installs.
    * TLS code: remove OPENSSL_NO_DEPRECATED macros to avoid portability issues
      with OpenSSL v3 - these are for development purposes, not production.
    * TLS futureproofing: use SSL_use_PrivateKey_file instead of
      SSL_use_RSAPrivateKey_file, the latter will be deprecated with OpenSSL v3,
      and the user's key file might be something else than RSA.
    * IMAP client: it used to leak memory for username and password when trying
      the LOGIN (password-based) authentication and encountered a timeout situation.
    * dist-tools/ also counts lines in *.py files, shown above.
    * now mentions that you may need to add --ssl when specifying
      a TLS-wrapped port.
    * fetchmailconf: --version (-V) now prints the Python version in use.
* Mon Mar 01 2021 Pedro Monreal <>
  - update to 6.4.16:
    * fetchmail's --configdump, and fetchmailconf, lacked support for
      the sslcertfile option.
    * fetchmail --version [fetchmail -V] now queries and prints the
      SSL/TLS library's "SSL default trusted certificate" file or
      directory (mind the word "default"), where the OpenSSL-compatible
      TLS implementation will look for trusted root, meaning
      certification authority (CA), certificates.
    * fetchmail --version now prints version of the OpenSSL library
      that it was compiled against, and that it is using at runtime,
      and also the OPENSSL_DIR and OPENSSL_ENGINES_DIR (if available).
* Mon Jan 04 2021 Dirk Müller <>
  - update to 6.4.15:
    * Fix a typo in the manual page reported by David McKelvie.
    * Fix cross-compilation with openssl, by Fabrice Fontaine. Merge request !23.
    * Fix truncation of SMTP PLAIN AUTH with ^ in credentials, by Earl Chew.
* Sat Dec 19 2020 Dirk Mueller <>
  - update to 6.4.14:
    * sr:    Мирослав Николић (Miroslav Nikolić) [Serbian]
    * Errors about lock file (= pidfile) creation could be lost in daemon
    configurations (-d option, or set daemon) when using syslog. Now they are also
    logged to syslog.  Found verifying a pidfile creation issue on 6.4.12 that was
    previously reported by Alex Hall of Automatic Distributors.
    * If the lock file cannot be removed (no write permission on directory), try
    to truncate it, and if that fails, report error.
    * If the pidfile was non-default, fetchmail -q or --quit would malfunction and
    claim no other fetchmail were running, because it did not read the
    configuration files or merge the command line options, thus it would look for
    the PID in the wrong file.
* Fri Dec 18 2020 Thorsten Kukuk <>
  - Don't require systemd
  - Use tmpfiles for all files
  - Use systemd macro for tmpfiles
  - Don't delete home directory if the user stays
  - Use sysusers config to create system user
* Fri Sep 04 2020 Dirk Mueller <>
  - update to 6.4.12:
    * configure: fetchmail 6.4.9 and 6.4.10 would miss checking for TLS v1.2 and
    TLS v1.3 support if AC_LIB_LINKFLAGS came up with something such as
    /path/to/, rather than -lssl. (For instance on FreeBSD)
    * configure: fetchmail 6.4.9's configure was unable to pick up OpenSSL
    if it wasn't announced by pkg-config, for instance, on FreeBSD
* Fri Aug 28 2020 Callum Farmer <>
  - De-hardcode /usr/lib path for launch executable (bsc#1174075)
  - Spec file cleanups
* Wed Aug 26 2020 Pedro Monreal Gonzalez <>
  - Update fetchmail.keyring file
  - Use %{_prefix}/lib instead of %{_libexecdir}
* Mon Aug 24 2020 Dirk Mueller <>
  - update to 6.4.8:
    * Add a test program fm_realpath, and a t.realpath script, neither to be
      installed. These will test resolution of the current working directory.
    * Plug memory leaks when parts of the configuration (defaults, rcfile, command
      line) override one another.
    * fetchmail terminated the placeholder command string too late and included
      garbage from the heap at the end of the string. Workaround: don't use place-
      holders %h or %p in the --plugin string. Bug added in 6.4.0 when merging
      Gitlab merge request !5 in order to fix an input buffer overrun.
      Faulty commit 418cda65f752e367fa663fd13884a45fcbc39ddd.
    * Fetchmail now checks for errors when trying to read the .idfile
    * Fetchmail's error messages that reports that the defaults entry isn't the
      first was made more precise. It could be misleading if there was a poll or
      skip statement before the defaults.
    * Fetchmail documentation was updated to require OpenSSL 1.1.1.
      OpenSSL 1.0.2 reached End Of Life status at the end of the year 2019.
      Fetchmail will tolerate, but warn about, 1.0.2 for now on the assumption that
      distributors backport security fixes as the need arises.
      Fetchmail will also warn if another SSL library that is API-compatible
      with OpenSSL lacks TLS v1.3 support.
    * If the trust anchor is missing, fetchmail refers the user to README.SSL.
    * The AC_DECLS(getenv) check was removed, its only user was broken and not
      accounting for that AC_DECLS always defines HAVE_DECL_... to 0 or 1, so
      fetchmail never declared a missing getenv() symbol (it was testing with
      [#]ifdef).  Remove the backup declaration. getenv is mandated by SUSv2 anyways.
    * fetchmailconf now supports Python 3 and currently requires the "future"
      package, see
    * fetchmailconf: The minimum supported version is now Python 2.7.13, but it is
      recommended to use at least 2.7.16 (due to its massive SSL updates).
      Older Python versions may check SSL certificates not strictly enough,
      which may cause fetchmail to complain later, if the certificate verify fails.
    * fetchmailconf now autoprobes SSL-wrapped connections (ports 993 and 995 for
      IMAP and POP3) as well and by preference.
    * fetchmailconf now defaults newly created users to "ssl" if either of the
      existing users sets ssl, or if the server has freshly been probed and
      found supporting ssl.
      There is a caveat: adding a user to an existing server without probing it
      again may skip adding ssl. (This does not prevent STARTTLS.)
    * Fix three bugs in (one unterminated string to .IP macro, one
      line that ran into a .PP macro, .TH date format), and remove one .br request
      from inside the table, which is unsupported by FreeBSD 12's mandoc(1) formatter.
    * Further man page fixes and additions by Chris Mayo and Gregor Zattler.
    * When evaluating the need for STARTTLS in non-default configurations (SSL
      certificate validation turned off), fetchmail would only consider --sslproto
      tls1 as requiring STARTTLS, now all non-empty protocol versions do.
    * fetchmailconf now properly writes "no sslcertck" if sslcertck is disabled.
    * fetchmailconf now catches and reports OS errors (including DNS errors) when
    * fetchmailconf received a host of other bugfixes, see the Git commit log.
* Wed Aug 19 2020 Dominique Leuenberger <>
  - Fix invalid usage of libexecdir where %_tmpfilesdir was meant to
    be used.
* Sun Feb 02 2020 Thorsten Kukuk <>
  - pwdutils is gone long time ago
* Wed Jan 08 2020 Ondřej Súkup <>
  - switch to python3
  - don't require python*-devel
* Fri Oct 04 2019 Pedro Monreal Gonzalez <>
  - Update to 6.4.1 [bsc#1152964]
    * The bug fix Debian Bug#941129 was incomplete and caused
    - a regression in the default file locations, so that fetchmail was
      no longer able to find its configuration files in some situations.
    - a regression under _FORTIFY_SOURCE where PATH_MAX > minimal _POSIX_PATH_MAX.
  - Update to 6.4.0
    * Fetchmail no longer supports SSLv2.
    * Fetchmail no longer attempts to negotiate SSLv3 by default,
      even with --sslproto ssl23. Fetchmail can now use SSLv3, or TLSv1.1 or a newer
      TLS version, with STLS/STARTTLS (it would previously force TLSv1.0 with
      STARTTLS).  If the OpenSSL version used at build and run-time supports these
      versions, --sslproto ssl3 and --sslproto ssl3+ can be used to re-enable SSLv3.
      Doing so is discouraged because the SSLv3 protocol is broken.
      While this change is supposed to be compatible with common configurations,
      users may have to and are advised to change all explicit --sslproto ssl2
      (change to newer protocols required), --sslproto ssl3, --sslproto tls1 to
    - -sslproto auto, so that they can benefit from TLSv1.1 and TLSv1.2 where
      supported by the server.
      The --sslproto option now understands the values auto, ssl3+, tls1+, tls1.1,
      tls1.1+, tls1.2, tls1.2+, tls1.3, tls1.3+ (case insensitively), see CHANGES
      below for details.
    * Fetchmail defaults to --sslcertck behaviour. A new option --nosslcertck to
      override this has been added, but may be removed in future fetchmail versions
      in favour of another configuration option that makes the insecurity in using
      this option clearer.
    * Fetchmail prevents buffer overruns in GSSAPI authentication with user names
      beyond c. 6000 characters in length. Reported by Greg Hudson.
    * fetchmail 6.4.0 is written in C99 and requires a SUSv3 (Single Unix
      Specification v3, a superset of POSIX.1-2001 aka. IEEE Std 1003.1-2001 with
      XSI extension) compliant system. For now, a C89 compiler should also work
      if the system is SUSv3 compliant.
      In particular, older fetchmail versions had workaround for several functions
      standardized in the Single Unix Specification v3, these have been removed.
      The trio/ library has been removed from the distribution.
    [#]# CHANGES
    * fetchmail 6.3.X is unsupported.
    * fetchmail now configures OpenSSL support by default.
    * fetchmail now requires OpenSSL v1.0.2 or newer.
    * Fetchmail now supports --sslproto auto and --sslproto tls1+ (same as ssl23).
    * --sslproto tls1.1+, tls1.2+, and tls1.3+ are now supported for
      auto-negotiation with a minimum specified TLS protocol version, and --sslproto
      tls1.1, --sslproto tls1.2 and --sslproto tls1.3 to force the specified TLS
      protocol version. Note that tls1.3 requires OpenSSL v1.1.1 or newer.
    * Fetchmail now detects if the server hangs up prematurely during SSL_connect()
      and reports this condition as such, and not just as SSL connection failure.
      (OpenSSL 1.0.2 reported incompatible with by Jerry Seibert).
    * A foreground fetchmail can now accept a few more options while another copy is
      running in the background.
    * fetchmail now handles POP3 --keep UID lists more efficiently, by using Rainer
      Weikusat's P-Tree implementation. This reduces the complexity for handling
      a large UIDL from O(n^2) to O(n log n) and becomes noticably faster with
      thousands of kept messages. (IMAP does not currently track UIDs and is unaffected.)
      At the same time, the UIDL emulation code for deficient servers has been
      removed. It never worked really well.  Servers that do not implement the
      optional UIDL command only work with --fetchall option set, which in itself is
      incompatible with the --keep option (it would cause message duplication).
    * fetchmail, when setting up TLS connections, now uses SSL_set_tlsext_host_name()
      to set up the SNI (Server Name Indication). Some servers (for instance
      googlemail) require SNI when using newer SSL protocols.
    * Fetchmail now sets the expected hostname through OpenSSL 1.0.2's new
      X509_VERIFY_PARAM_set1_host() function to enable OpenSSL's native certificate
      verification features.
    * fetchmail will drop the connection when fetching with IMAP and receiving an
      unexpected untagged "* BYE" response, to work around certain faulty servers.
    * The FETCHMAIL_POP3_FORCE_RETR environment variable is now documented,
      it forces fetchmail, when talking POP3, to always use the RETR command,
      even if it would otherwise use the TOP command.
    * Fetchmail's configure stage will try to query pkg-config or pkgconf for libssl
      and libcrypto, in case other system use .pc files to document specific library dependencies.
    * The gethostbyname() API calls and compatibility functions have been removed.
    * These translations are shipped but not installed by default because
      they have less than 500 translated messages out of 714: el fi gl pt_BR sk tr
    - > Greek, Finnish, Galician, Brazilian Portuguese, Slovak, Turkish.
    * Fetchmail now refuses delivery if the MDA option contains single-quoted expansions.
    [#]# FIXES
    * Do not translate header tags such as "Subject:".
    * Convert most links from to
    * Report error to stderr, and exit, if --idle is combined with multiple  accounts.
    * Point to --idle from GENERAL OPERATION to clarify --idle and multiple  mailboxes do not mix.
    * Fix SSL-enabled build on systems that do not declare SSLv3_client_method(),
      or that #define OPENSSL_NO_SSL3 inside #include <openssl/ssl.h>
    * Version report lists -SSLv3 on SSL-enabled no-ssl3 builds.
    * Fetchmail no longer adds a NUL byte to the username in GSSAPI authentication.
      This was reported to break Kerberos-based authentication with Microsoft Exchange 2013
    * Set umask properly before writing the .fetchids file, to avoid failing the
      security check on the next run.
    * When forwarding by LMTP, also check antispam response code when collecting
      the responses after the CR LF . CR LF sequence at the end of the DATA phase.
    * fetchmail will not try other protocols after a socket error. This avoids mismatches
      of how different prococols see messages as "seen" and re-fetches of known mail.
    * fetchmail no longer reports "System error during SSL_connect(): Success."
    * fetchmailconf would ignore Edit or Delete actions on the first (topmost)
      item in a list (no matter if server list, user list, ...).
    * The mimedecode feature now properly detects multipart/mixed-type matches, so
      that quoted-printable-encoded multipart messages can get decoded.
      (Regression in 5.0.0 on 1999-03-27, as a side effect of a PGP-mimedecode fix
      attributed to Henrik Storner.)
    * FETCHMAILHOME can now safely be a relative path, which will be qualified
      through realpath(). Previously, it had to be absolute in daemon mode.
      (This section floats upwards through the NEWS file so it stays with the
      current release information)
    * Fetchmail does not handle messages without Message-ID header well
      (See bug #780933)
    * Fetchmail currently uses 31-bit signed integers in several places
      where unsigned and/or wider types should have been used, for instance,
      for mailbox sizes, and misreports sizes of 2 GibiB and beyond.
      Fixing this requires C89 compatibility to be relinquished.
    * BSMTP is mostly untested and errors can cause corrupt output.
    * Sun Workshop 6 (SPARC) is known to miscompile the configuration file lexer in
      64-bit mode.  Either compile 32-bit code or use GCC to compile 64-bit fetchmail.
    * Fetchmail does not track pending deletes across crashes.
    * The command line interface is sometimes a bit stubborn, for instance,
      fetchmail -s doesn't work with a daemon running.
    * Linux systems may return duplicates of an IP address in some circumstances if
      no or no global IPv6 addresses are configured.
      (No workaround. Ubuntu Bug#582585, Novell Bug#606980.)
    * Kerberos 5 may be broken, particularly on Heimdal, and provide bogus error
      messages. This will not be fixed, because the maintainer has no Kerberos 5
      server to test against. Use GSSAPI.
