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.
memtester is a user-space utility for testing the memory subsystem in a computer to determine if it is faulty. It does a good job of finding intermittent faults and non-deterministic faults. It has many tests to help catch borderline memory. memtester should compile and run on any 32- or 64-bit Unix or Unix-like system.
queue_repair can be used to check or correct most corruptions of the queue in qmail (resulting from filesystem damage, etc). Functionality includes automatic, dynamic determination of UIDs and GIDs. Automatic, dynamic determination of use of big-todo. Handles basic tasks like fixing a queue restored from backups, incorrect ownership or permissions of directories and files, missing or extra split subdirectories, unexpected files or other directories, or creating a valid queue from scratch.
Don't forget getmail :)
(Plug) getmail and queue-repair are also in Python. Development was much quicker than it would have been in C or Perl.

You realize, of course, that this page is about getmail and not fetchmail? Please take your question to the fetchmail mailing list.
