fetchmail fails with smtp error

     On my hamm system, fetchmail fails with the following message:

fetchmail: 29 messages at hilliard@post.metrolink.net.
reading message 1 (4310 bytes) ..fetchmail: SMTP connect to (null)
fetchmail: SMTP transaction error while fetching from

     I have installed fetchmail_4.3.4-1.deb, ppp_2.3.2-2.deb, a
custom-compiled 2.0.32 kernel, and bash_2.01-5.deb.

     My .fetchmailrc file is:
poll post.metrolink.net proto pop3 user hilliard password <mypw> smtp localhost

     I have used this .fetchmailrc file in bo for at least six months
with no difficulties.  (The man page in hamm lists "smtphost" instead
of "smtp"; I tried this without effect.)

     Has anyone encountered this?  Does anyone know what is wrong?
