If it's only about SSL support, add the "ssl" keyword to your
configuration line(s) in ~/.fetchmailrc or the global equivalent.


	poll pop.example.com proto POP3 user BOB pass HUNTER2 fetchall flush ssl

See "man fetchmail" for details.

If it's about actually replacing fetchmail: check getmail. :-)
