Re: fetchmail errors when my Netscape mails to @3rvs.com
I noticed the trailing "." as well. Is the sending system you refer to the
remote system at the where the mail is being stored (ISP) or the mail agent I'm
using (Netscape)? I'll look into rewrite options in the exim configuration file

Exim is rejecting the mail because of the trailing . in the domain name
of the sender. This is perhaps a bit picky, but seems reasonable (I
haven't actually checked the specs to see if the trailing . is allowed).

It doesn't look like fetchmail - it seems to just be believing what it
sees as the sender address in the incoming mail. Either try to fix the
sending system (I'm guessing it's another of your accounts) or try to
convince Exim to be less picky.
