Re: fetchmail error

Just now fetchmail worked quickly again.  SMTP was also speedy (it was
very slow also).  I suspect the problem was at my ISP.  I suspect that
possibly fetchmail does a DNS lookup while getmail does not and
something was causing a delay in the response from my ISP's nameserver.

It looks to me as though it is waiting for confirmation from the server, while the server is waiting for some additional information.
