Hi all

I am trying to create an automated job to download mails from a pop mail box and then forward them onto the smtp server which is running locally. I have used fetchmail before so decided to use that and got it running perfectly on the older server using cron but on the newer one it says it is now using launchd but i am unsure how to schedule a job using this can anyone help please
QUOTE Thanks

I can't give you a definite answer on what you need to do to get that job running smoothly like you were used to but I did a bit of research and uncovered a few useful ( I think they may be ) links. Being used to working with Cron Jobs directly, hopefully the information contained is at your level of expertise as it certainly is not mine.

Periodic jobs and launchd in OS X.4
