Yes, you need to install and configure either "fetchmail" or "getmail" to retrieve emails from other IMAP/POP3 server.

Does my reply help a little? How about buying me a cup of coffee ($5) as an encouragement?

Hello thank for the help.  I dont know about fetchmail or getmail .. Will they do the job automatically or  do I run manually each  time I  receive new mails. In gmail  or hotmail you  can define another email account to  forward to  so  that it does the job automatically.   Can we do the same in iredmail ?  Can we configure hotmail  or gmail domain in  iredadmin ?
Thank.

- They support fetching in certain period/interval, so yes it does the job automatically.
- iRedMail doesn't integrate them, but you're free to setup them.

Because I dont known anything about fetchmail, how it will bring my gmail messages into my iredmail mailbox?  Do I run fetchmail from a particular folder/directory or is it defined inside a config file, or something else.  What I mean is how fetchmail will know where to place the retrieved gmail messages ?

Thank.

It connects to your Gmail mailbox via IMAP protocol, fetch new emails and pipe to Dovecot LDA for local mailbox delivery.
