- fetchexc [-p property-file]
- Specify the preferences file to use, rather than the default of fetchExc.properties in the current directory.
The configuration file format is key = value. Whitespace around the key is ignored, as well as whitespace before the value. Lines whose first non-whitespace character is # or ! are considered comments and ignored.
A description of each configuration option is given below.
- Retrieve all messages, rather than only unread messages.
Deletes messages after retrieving them. Otherwise messages are marked read and left in the Inbox.
Don't combine Delete = false and All = true if you are not testing. That will fetch every message from your Inbox every time you run fetchExc.
- Destination address, only used with form-based authentication. The correct value can be found in the login page's source in the hidden "destination" field.
- The address of the recipient for retrieved emails. If MboxFile is defined this option is ignored. If ProcMail is true this is the program to use for sending mail, for example /usr/bin/procmail.
- NetBIOS domain name, for instance YOYODYNE if your NetBIOS login is YOYODYNE\Joe.User.
- The web server to retrieve messages from, for example webmail.example.com.
- The path to Outlook Web Access. Usually exchange.
- The Exchange mailbox name, not necessarily the same as the Username option.

- Email address that the forwarding server will accept. Only used if ForceFrom is true.
- SMTP server to forward messages to. This option is not used if MboxFile is set.

- Password for authentication with the Exchange server.
- If true the program in DestinationAddress is used to send email. The default is false.
- Uses HTTPS when set to true. This should be enabled whenever possible.
- Username for authentication with the Exchange server. Not necessarily the same as the ExchangeUser option.
Example 1. Configuration file for SMTP forwarding
