I had something similar. I was having to telnet into the pop server
every now and again to delete some message that was screwing up
fetchmail. I finally discovered that fetchmail was passing the message
to exim, but exim was refusing it and issuing an error. I didn't really
need exim, because all exim did was pass my message to procmail anyway,
so I configured fetchmail to pass my mail directly to procmail.
