This is failing when fetchmail attempts to connect to postfix to send the mail locally. Either postfix isn't running, or perhaps the main.cf file has been changed so it's not listening on localhost. The command ``lsof -n -i :25 | grep LISTEN'' should show any processes listening on port 25 (SMTP) Try ``postconf smtp_bind_address'' to see if postfix configured to listen on a specific interface.
