I have a single machine right now running emacs and emacspeak.  so I
will have to setup fetchmail and emacspeak on the same machine.  by
the way which mail transfer agent will be best for vm?  I am new to
all this hence the query.
please recommend me proper documentation for setting this up right.
the documentation in the emacspeak manual for vm is good but it has
not solved my problem of sending and getting emails from gmail.

yes, I have it setup on my windows machine, but it was gui based so
finding it a bit difficult.
thanks for the help.
