Fetchmail (new one that is) now can be ran in daemon mode so the
following has to be added into /etc/rc.conf:


The fetchmailrc file has to be owned by fetchmail:

# ls -al /usr/local/etc/fetchmailrc
-rw-------  1 fetchmail  fetchmail  6614 Feb 27 11:57 fetchmailrc

This is the syntax I use in fetchmailrc:

poll pop3.domain.tld proto pop3 no dns
     user "USERNAME1", with password "PASSWORD1", is "USERNAME1" here;
     user "USERNAME2", with password "PASSWORD2", is "USERNAME2" here;
     user "USERNAME3", with password "PASSWORD3", is "USERNAME3" here;

Some users aren't located on the same server. So I redirect their
correspondence with the help of /etc/mail/aliases:

For all of that, I didn't have to touch sendmail (apart from aliases).

Hopefully this will help you somehow.
