Hi Sam,

I compared that with mine, which has a diferent syntax:

# Configuration created Sat Sep  8 17:29:15 2001 by fetchmailconf
set postmaster "postmaster"
set bouncemail
set no spambounce
set properties ""
poll pop.btx.dtag.de
       user '*****' there with password '***' is joachim here

I think fetchmailconf did that automagically.
