In case of fetchmail, it's questionable if the X11-based GUI
configuration tool is part of _lowest_ common denominator. :-)

Keep in mind fetchmail comes with great documentation (in the
form of "man fetchmail"), and everything you need to do is
to write (at least) one stupid line into .fetchmailrc that
is really simple to construct. For a system-wide fetchmail
installation that fetches mail for several users, getting
the configuration right isn't much harder.
