Fair enough... I just ran 'update-rc.d fetchmail remove' and it removed
the scripts for fetchmail from all the various rcX.d directories.
Running 'apt-get install fetchmail' says this:
Setting up fetchmail (5.8.17-1) ...
update-rc.d: /etc/init.d/fetchmail: file does not exist
dpkg: error processing fetchmail (--configure):
subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
