Yes, I found that hidden gem too after searching high and low for a less 
daunting alternative to fetchmail. I use it during the holidays to prevent 
my mailboxes from overflowing - easy to set up, works like a charm, and 
uses the plain old mbox format so it integrates well with 
Mozilla/Thunderbird.

During that time however there is no mail left on the server, and when I 
come back there are those huge files to mount and despam in TB, so I'm 
looking for something more permanent.
