You are right. I rerun smailconfig and option 3 (Satellite) was unfamiliar
to me, option 1 (Internet site) looked like the questions I have answered
during smail setup.
So: USE OPTION 1, DON'T USE OPTION 3
I am sorry for causing that much confusion. I guess in the year which
passed between now and my smailconfig, I have lost too much brain due to
the good beer you get here in germany :-)
So I hope atleast somebody found my fetchmailrc usefull. Don't forget to
check for localhost in the hostnames line in /etc/smail/config if you want
to take it as a template for your own setup.
