You were right. My .fetchmailrc file read:
poll cats.ucsc.edu proto POP3
user otte with password x is ric here
keep smtphost otte
I believe it was that last line which was sending the mail to
'ric@otte'. After I changed that line to simply 'keep', I noticed that
exim is now sending the mail to 'ric@localhost', which is fine.
My hosts file looks like this:
127.0.0.1 otte localhost
188.8.131.52 otte.ucsc.edu otte
(with a buch of stuff that I don't understand about IPv6 capable hosts,
added automaticaly by netbase upgrade)
If this doesn't look ok to you, let me know.
Thanks very much; it looks like things are working now.
