Now I did these:
* edit /etc/exim4/update-exim4.conf.conf :
and add the line
* restart exim4 :
invoke-rc.d exim4 restart
* view the /var/log/exim4/mainlog (These are lines for one mail only):
[127.0.0.1] U=fetchmail P=esmtp S=8724 id=2IlLqB.A.hiC.KsP4CB@bevo
fetchmail <fetchmail@localhost> R=local_user T=procmail_pipe
It is not quit clear to me this message abowe. It seems to me that
exim4 get the mail from fetchmail and process it forward to esmtp,
isn't it? But I don't understand the line "fetchmail <fetchmail@localhost>
R=local_user T=procmail_pipe". Can you explain to me that, that what for
stand fetchmail on the front of the line?
And why I still get the mails in /var/mail/fetchmail box, instead in the
~/Mail/mbox -es? Thanks!
