inchiquin: Does Hermes do all the forms and combinations of transport and protocol that fetchmail supports? From what's been said here, not even close. So it's hardly "fully functional" in that respect. What's the added value? Why should a free piece of software not be as user-friendly or idiot-proof as a commercial offering? As for bomb-proof, fetchmail has certainly had much heavier testing, by many many more people.

So you're right, I don't understand. Perhaps you could explain it to me.
