Fetchmail (new one that is) now can be ran in daemon mode so the following has to be added into /etc/rc.conf: fetchmail_enable="YES" fetchmail_polling_interval="300" 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: USERNAME3: [EMAIL PROTECTED] > I changed the permissions on sendmail back to: > > $ ll -r-sr-xr-x 1 root wheel 583680 Jan 11 23:42 sendmail > > from 6.2 default: > > $ ll -rwsr-xr-x 1 root wheel 583680 Jan 11 23:42 sendmail > > I've tried it both ways and niether seems to make any difference. For all of that, I didn't have to touch sendmail (apart from aliases). Hopefully this will help you somehow.
