You've piqued my interest.
I've done some more reading on cc:Mail. It seems that you're talking
about cc:Mail /Mobile/, and not cc:Mail (proper). It seems as if
cc:Mail /Mobile/ is an add-on product meant to allow mobile users access
a cc:Mail Post Office.
There is a more true client / server version of cc:Mail, but it was
apparently named cc:Guardian.
There were also the SMTP, POP3, and IMAP gateways for cc:Mail Post
Offices. Per the Readme.1st file on the cc:Mail 8.1 CD-ROM that I'm
- cc:Mail IMAP Server
- cc:Mail POP3 Server
- cc:Mail Link to SMTP
- cc:Mail Mobile
Among many other things.
Also, per the Readme.1st file, cc:Mail 8.1, including it's cc:Mail
/Mobile/ add-on used a Post Office directory structure.
Some of the reading that I did today indicated that even cc:Mail Mobile
used a Post Office. It's just that it was a local single person Post
Office and that cc:Mail Mobile did some sort of undefined communications
over the modem connection. As such, I'm guessing that this cc:Mail
Mobile communications protocol is quite proprietary. Wikipedia's
cc:Mail article indicates that cc:Mail Remote was developed for a few HP
If the cc:Mail that you have on your device is the cc:Mail Mobile or
Remote that is meant to connect to cc:Mail Mobile in the central office,
then I think I may have a solution for you.
Fetchmail -> cc:Mail SMTP -> Internet SMTP server
I think that the top three lines could likely run one system.
Do you think this might do what you are wanting to do? After all, it
seems like it's cc:Mail's answer to your question.
