Pretty sure that this one means that there is an error in your 
.fetchmailrc file (as opposed for instance to an error between
fetchmail and the pop host.

This means that your fetchmail successfully contacted your isp mailhost.

These two mean that fetchmail successfully retrieved two messages but
did not delete the two messages from the mailhost after retrieving 
them (due to a "keep" option being specified).

Further, this means that these two messages _should_ be on your computer

Can you send email to yourself on your machine?
Have you tried telnetting to port 25 on your machine an manually doing
an smtp transfer?
