There are couple of solutions to this:

* mutt:
* fetchmail:

The 4.7.5 release of fetchmail is now available at the usual locations,
including <URL:> and

or (perl based)

(get from:

* pine:
* imap client

This IMAP client also has a POP3 client: (U of Washington)

* qpopper:

Fetchmail, mutt, pine, qpopper are all available from Sun Freeware site. But
may not be for all OSs and may not be the lastest.
