getmail is intended as a simple, secure, and reliable replacement for
fetchmail. It retrieves email (either all messages, or only unread messages)
from one or more POP3, SPDS, or IMAP4 servers (with or without SSL) for one or
more email accounts, and reliably delivers into qmail-style Maildirs, mboxrd
files, or through external MDAs (command deliveries) specified on a per-account
basis. getmail also has excellent support for domain (multidrop) mailboxes,
including delivering messages to different users or destinations based on the
envelope recipient address.

- Version bump to 5.1
* bugfix: if password_command parameter was used with a non-existent
program, getmail would error out during the handling of that
condition and not report the problem correctly.
- Changes from 5.0
* new release numbering scheme; previous version numbers were just
getting too high.
* catch and ignore/exit cleanly after reset connection in IMAP IDLE
mode. Thanks:  Stephan Schulz.
* allow specifying an expected SSL certificate hostname, for when
the server's certificate does not match the domain name used to
connect to it.  Thanks:  "Andre".
* fix error message not actually giving the header field name
incorrectly specified as containing the envelope recipient address.
Thanks:  Hardy Braunsdorf.
* add new password_command configuration parameter for retrievers,
allowing getmail to retrieve the account password from any
arbitrary external command.  Suggestion:  "ng0".
