I have an old PC running text-mode FC5. I need to read the mail sent just for the root account (from crond, logwatch, ...etc) in my Windows POP3/IMAP client. What is the simplest server to install and configure in my case? I prefer FC5 native rpm. Thanks
FC5 is ancient, and there aren't likely to be many guides around on what you're looking for. I recommend you upgrade to at least F12 (or even CentOS 5 if you want off the upgrade treadmill) and then use dovecot as a POP3/IMAP4 server, after aliasing the mail for root to your user account.
