       axgetmail - automaticaly download messages from the F6FBB BBS


       axgetmail <bbs_callsign>


       Axgetmail scans the message list of specified BBS and downloads all new
       messages  that  have  a  destination  which  belongs  to  the  list  of
       interesting bulletins.  There can be a list for each BBS.

       Bulletins are stored into
       For  downloading  personal mail each callsign we want download mail for
       must have an entry in the /etc/ax25/logins file to enable axgetmail  to
       determine  the  user  whose  home  directory  will  be used for storing
       personal messages. The HOMEDIR argument in axgetmail.conf specifies the
       path  relative to user’s home directory where the personal mail will be
       stored. Personal messages are stored into the directory
       If the subdirectory for any BBS doesn’t  exist,  no  personal  mail  is
       downloaded for such user from the BBS.

       Axgetmail can be run automaticaly by ulistd utility. See ulistd(8).


       After  the  succesful  connect to the BBS axgetmail attempts to execute
       the script /var/ax25/auth_agent and redirects its stdin and  stdout  to
       the BBS. The BBS callsign is passed as the first command line argument.
       The script should take actions needed for user’s authorization  to  the
       BBS.  When  the script execution fails, axgetmail continues downloading
       the messages without authorization.
