A better way to handle this is to tell fetchmail to use your local
username and hostname as the envelope recipient. This prevents the
possibility that you become a relay spammers can use to target other
users of your isp.
You can do this by telling fetchmail to use a certain mda (thus
invoking exim locally).
'wants mda "/usr/sbin/exim %T"' in .fetchmailrc
Alternatively you can ensure that your hostname (and domain, if you
have one) is given in the "local_domains" directive of exim.conf.
Microsoft encrypts your Windows NT password when stored on a Windows CE
device. But if you look carefully at their encryption algorithm, they
simply XOR the password with "susageP", Pegasus spelled backwards.
Pegasus is the code name of Windows CE. This is so pathetic it's
