All you need is an SMTP tool to get your mail to your ISP's (or
other mail provider's) MTA.

I use msmtp. There are others. Fetchmail to retrieve mail from
a POP/IMAP server.
This is easy as pie and bulletproof. If you are interested then
I'll post example configuration files.
I, for one, would be interested in seeing example configuration files.
Okay. These are for accessing gmail's pop servers. First you
sign up for an account using the web, of course.
from foo@xxxxxxxxx # gmail address
is foo here # user name
and wants mda "/usr/bin/formail -s /usr/bin/procmail"
MAILDIR=/home/foo/Mail #you'd better make sure it exists
Fetchmail needs to hand off to an MTA or MDA. Procmail is the
easiest way to do this and a very useful tool. That simple rc
will deliver all mail to your ~/Mail/inbox. See man procmailrc
and procmailex for more details.
Formail comes with the procmail package.
