Is USER=fetchmail correct? And you say mail ends up in
/var/mail/fetchmail? seems suspicious.
I dont run fetchmail as a daemon.
but 'dpkg-reconfigure -plow fetchmail' doesn't offer to allow you to
change it. :-( (not that I want to)
I suggest reinstall fetchmail and don't have it as a daemon
As a normal user:
chrisb@kan:~$ less .fetchmailrc
poll your.pop.server with protocol pop3
chrisb@kan:~$ ls -al .fetchmailrc
-rw------- 1 chrisb chrisb 74 2005-01-18 02:48 .fetchmailrc
chrisb@kan:~$ less .forward
chrisb@kan:~$ ls -al .forward
-rw-r--r-- 1 chrisb chrisb 19 2005-01-19 23:03 .forward
Reproduction if desired may be handled locally. -- rfc3
