I couldn't find one - in fact I was rapidly coming to the conclusion that
the best solution was to run Agent through WINE, but the problem with that
brilliant idea was that I kept forgetting to bring my Agent disks in, so
in the end I stuck with using a combination of PINE, fetchmail and
procmail (a bit kludgy, but nonetheless does the job).
