alpine based fetchmail container
Full Description

docker-fetchmail


alpine linux with fetchmail and logrotate

docker run -it --name fetchmail -v /fetchmail_config:/data -e TIMECRON:300 cguenther/docker-fetchmail

TIMECRON: Time to Recheck mail, if nothing set it defaults to 300 seconds (which should accept the most mail servers)

configuration

create a local etc/fetchmailrc file and adjust it to your own needs

  • let the postmaster run as fetchmail
  • use the /data/log/fetchmail.log logging path for correct logrotate interop
    example:
set no syslog
set logfile /data/log/fetchmail.log

set postmaster "fetchmail"

poll imap.gmail.com with proto IMAP
  user 'someusername@gmail.com' there with password 'yourpassword' is fetchmail here options ssl
  smtphost mail.example.org
  smtpname some.user@example.org

docker-compose example

mount the folder, which contains the etc/fetchmailrc into the /data of the container

fetchmail:
  restart: always
  image: cguenther/docker-fetchmail
  hostname: fetchmail
  volumes:
    - ./fetchmail:/data:rw
  environment:
   - TIMECRON=300

The fetchmail container logs directly into the mountpoint log/fetchmail.log
