So if I put "SET_DAEMON=yes" to /etc/default/fetchmail and other needed
parameters to .fetchmailrc then daemon should start for every user that
has .fetchmailrc file?

This gives a default value of 600 seconds i believe. Should you be happy
with this you would not not need to set a daemon value.
However, if you wish to set daemon to a different value, in the
/etc/fetchmailr you can add 'set daemon 300' or to however frequently you need it to poll the server.
I use exactly this method and it works perfectly.

that I was looking for. I had put that "set daemon nnn" in
.fetchmailrc, but it didn't work. :-(
What should I put in files /etc/default/fetchmail and /etc/fetchmailrc then?

How do I set fetchmail to automatically fetch mails of all user?

Unless you want to use a system-wide fetchmail, you can put a line in
each user's .fetchmailrc:
set daemon nnn
where "nnn" is the number of seconds between polls - I have mine set at
900. They can then use "fetchmail -q" to shut the daemon down.
