RE: minor (major) fetchmail problem
Thankyou for your reply.
I slept on it and found the problem this morning.
For some reason I have the command running as 'fetchmail fetchmail -v' took
out the first 'fetchmail' and it all came to life.
I haven't touched the crontab for ages so perhaps there was that bug all
along that the last install was ignoring and this one picked up.
Dear me, the tiredness-factor plays a big part sometimes! :-)

It would help to see your fetchmailrc file (just remove the passwords).
