I had to slightly modify it to work the way I wanted on my system. I
would suggest that you do that 'AFTER' you have gotten it to relatively

Are these changes useful for other users, too? If so, please send me
a diff, so I can modify the port.
This is a little guide to setting up fetchmail 6.3.8
make install clean
The above two are mentioned in /usr/local/etc/rc.d/fetchmail
ee /usr/local/etc/fetchmailrc (initially it is nearly empty)
set no bouncemail
set no spambounce
set postmaster [EMAIL PROTECTED]
is [EMAIL PROTECTED]
The above options are for a client who wishes to keep messages stored in
remote POP3 mailboxes. *man fetchmail* for specifics, especially at the

options. The MTA handling the local domain is qmail, hence the required
The timings (60sec per POP3 access) may seem agressive but I contacted
the ISP and they have no problem with that and the client is happy to
have nearly "email-chat" sessions. Users or abusers, as long as they pay
chmod 0700 /usr/local/etc/fetchmailrc
chown fetchmail:fetchmail /usr/local/etc/fetchmailrc (the
permissions are already set anyway)
Also there is a new option I haven't seen before. Suppose that fetchmail
is sleeping and you want to wake it up *right now* to receive new messages:
