I'm sorry. It was a misconfiguration in my Linux box.

First of all, it's concerning choice. I like it and I thought it would
be a good idea package if for Debian.

Second, and comparing to getmail and fetchmail, fetchpop is really small
-minimal-, efficient -really fast-, very robust -proven stability- and
really simple -there's no need to write your own config file, the
program will do it for you-.

Then ... is there a dark side? Yes, it only retrieves mail from pop
servers :-(. But previous reasons are sufficient for me to consider it
useful and a really nice piece of software. Many people should consider
it useful too.
