I believe that "evil sorcery" is an accurate description. I had, several
years ago now, a lengthy discussion regarding that over the LL with
googles tech support. They were adamant that it was not open for
discussion. So I moved my list subscriptions, but left fetchmails
access active, and still used it for PM's. A month or so later
fetchmails logins became invalid intermittently, then permanently. Since
I wasn't of a mind to waste another quarter argueing with a stone wall,
I commented that poll stanza out of my .fetchmailrc. Shrug.
