This looks good to me. But it gives me errors:

67 messages (67 seen) for joerg_johannes at imap.web.de (folder 
skipping message joerg_johannes@imap.web.de:1 (15645 octets) not flushed
<snipping 66 of the same messages>
fetchmail: mailbox selection failed
fetchmail: client/server synchronization error while fetching from 
fetchmail: Query status=7 (ERROR)

poll imap.web.de with proto IMAP
user 'joerg_johannes'
password '++++++++++++'
folders Posteingang Amazon Ebay
