HELP: setting up fetchmail over ssh withou password asking?


i am retreiving my mail from a mail server with fetchmail, since i
wanted to make the thing more or les secure, i set up the thing over

poll mailserver
       with proto pop3
       user 'bboett' there is 'bboett' here:·
           preconnect "ssh -f -L 1234:mailserver:110 mailserver sleep 20 </dev/null >/dev/null";

now this works, but it asks me to give a passwd.... with normal ssh i
can login into the server without passwd (i exchanged the keys...)

i tryed the --auth ssh switch in the commandline (it doesn't like it at
    all inside the .fetchmailrc) but i got a connection refused...

so if anyone could give me a hint...

ciao bboett
