fetchmail fails with smtp error
On my hamm system, fetchmail fails with the following message:
fetchmail: 29 messages at email@example.com.
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?
