My provider, Verizon/Frontier, for me, is supporting POP.
My only concern with using Getmail, or any utility that will pull from a POP server, is that I’ll run into the issue that I had with Neomutt’s POP functionality not working well with their server.
But, we’ll see. I’ll hopefully try this this weekend.
