My fetchmail line (which clearly works since I receive debian-user mail
through it):

poll pop.gmail.com with proto POP3 port 995 and options no dns
    localdomains gmail.com anthropohedron.net
       user '<my username>' there with password '<my password>' is 'gsslist' here options fetchall ssl batchlimit 10

Note that I use batchlimit so that if, for some reason, there is a large
backlog of messages it won't make exim4 unhappy. I could change the limit
in exim4 instead, but this is easier and works well.
