Getmail Retriever for Roundcube

Getmail Retriever plugin for Roundcube is a GPL licensed fork of the ispcp_fetchmail plugin for Roundcube webmail.  getmail is an alternative to fetchmail with a better track record for reliability and security.  This plugin allows your Roundcube users to use getmail to retrieve mail via POP3 or IMAP and deliver that mail to the user.  The back-end is a PHP-CLI/PDO script run from cron that executes getmail according to a combination of settings selected by the administrator and users.  Getmail Retriever supports most of what getmail supports, and Getmail Retriever should support any database supported by Roundcube.


I can only offer limited support for Getmail Retriever, because I don't really understand the workings of Roundcube, and because making mail retrievers work correctly tends to be site-specific.  I'd like for this plugin to be useful to people though, so I'll do my best to help you. You can ask for help on the mailing list.  My intent is that Getmail Retriever should work with any database supported by Roundcube and anywhere Roundcube and getmail work.
