Fetchmail is a free, full-featured, robust, 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 supports all standard mail-retrieval protocols in use on the Internet: POP2, POP3 (including POP3 with RFC1938 one-time passwords), RPOP, APOP, KPOP, Compuserve's POP3 with RPA, Microsoft's NTLM, Demon Internet's SDPS, all flavors of IMAP (including IMAP4rev1 with RFC1731 Kerberos v4 or GSSAPI authentication or CRAM-MD5 authentication), and ESMTP ETRN. Fetchmail also supports end-to-end encryption with OpenSSL.
