    Default Grabbing from pop3 to shared calendar

    I'm currently setting up a Zimbra installation for one of our offices and have hit a slight problem. They currently use Yahoo! Mail, with a single account for all 4 office staff. All inbound mail comes into this account, with 4 or 5 pop accounts being polled when the user clicks the 'get mail' button.

    So far, I have set up Zimbra with the individual users and created a shared 'office' user - the individual users have access to the 'office' inbox and this is working nicely. The problem now comes with having the pop accounts polled automatically, as I need all retrieved emails to go into the office inbox instead of the individual user's. I have followed the instructions here:

    I have added all of the pop accounts and can successfully poll them by running the fetchmail command or using a cron job. However I'd rather not have our server polling 5 or 6 different accounts every couple of minutes. Is there any way that I can add a button in Zimbra that will call the fetchmail script so that the users can poll the accounts as and when they need to?

    Any help would be appreciated! Thanks, Stephen.

    Sorry, I meant a shared email account!
