Re: Fetchmail isn't working the way it should.

I tried it and it didn't solve the problem but that's not
surprising when I tell you why.

Realisation suddenly dawned!  I had been editing my user copy of
.fetchmailrc and although these had an effect if I ran Fetchmail
from the command line it had no effect when Fetchmail was running
as a demon because the demon is run as root!  When I finally
thought to look in root's .fetchmailrc I found that it included
'keep' from previous testing runs.

How embarrasing.  Sorry all.

All is now working as it should.
