    capturing email

    IS there a way to capture the e-mails being sent to my other e-mail accounts so that all of them land up in just one account???

    Most types of e-mail accounts have a means of forwarding their mail to a different account. A redirect so to speak. Set your accounts up to consolidate your mail into one account if thats what you are trying to do.

    What exactly are you trying to acheive?

    Do you own the domains for your other email accounts? If so do you control the dns records from them.

    If so you could alter the mx records for all your domains and point them to a single mail server that is configured to accept them and forward them all to one account.

    My guess is, however,that you don't have control of these things.

    Would you be trying to read someone else's mail by any chance?

    Maybe you should explain more about what you want to do and why. If they are your accounts then redirection is the way to go. as steve said from your post it looks more like you just want a way to read someone else mail. If that is the case this is probably not the right place to post. Unless of course you can explain why you should be helped.

    I do this every day. Use Fetchmail and Mutt and tell Mutt to set the reply from header to whatever account you want them to go to, that way when you send email it shows up as that and just use fetchmailrc to tell it to grab email from all your accounts and pop them in the mbox of your local user account.
