Uh, no, if you'll note from the direction of the arrows (and the OP's later
message where he telnet's to the POPd), the error about the disk file is
coming from the POP server, and has nothing to do with the local MTA or
fetchmail itself.

Now... why the remote might be having problems opening a disk file, I have
no idea, but the problem isn't on the local end.
