I want to run fetchmail enabled for system wide mode. The command line cmd fetchmail -q issued from user root gets meaningless error msg. Reviewing /usr/local/etc/rc.d/fetchmail has comments talking about system wide mode running under user fetchmail. How does the system admin control fetchmail when user fetchmail needs password to logon and no where is password given during install.
Also /usr/local/etc/fetchmailrc which is suppose to be the config file is empty. Even fetchmailrc.sample is empty. The port pkg-message file is absent so there is no information describing how to configure fetchmail in system-wide mode or individual user mode. These are unique run modes to freebsd and are not covered in the fetchmail manual. The port pkg-message file should be created with instructions about how to configure it. Before in 4.11 through 5.4 I started fetchmail using /usr/local/etc/rc.d/fetchmail.sh and /root/,fetchmailrc and had root admin control of fetchmail. How do I achieve admin control now that fetchmail has been converted to use rc.conf fetchmail_enable="YES" to start at boot time? _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
