For years I used fetchmail to fetch the mail on my ISP's POP3 server.
Now, for at least a year, I have had trouble with fetchmail, and have resorted to fetchpop. Fetchpop doesn't work right for my current ISP---but that's another issue.
With fetchmail, I get something like the following. I suspect there is something wrong with the way I am setting my system up, since a new box I have just installed has a similar behavior.
----------------- BEGIN error message
5 messages (5 seen) for spn2520 at mail.saipan.com.
reading message 1 of 5 (1503 header octets) .fetchmail: SMTP connect to localhost failed
fetchmail: can't raise the listener; falling back to $sendmail %Tsh: spn2520: command not found
(1121 body octets) .fetchmail: SIGPIPE thrown from an MDA or a stream socket error
fetchmail: socket error while fetching from mail.saipan.com
fetchmail: Query status=2 (SOCKET)
fetchmail: terminated with signal 13
----------------- END error message
Can anyone lend a clue?
Thanks (again and again)
