I'm running getmail version 4.7.6. My getmailrc file is

i2/home/daf/.getmail}head -40 getmailrc
# This file contains various examples of configuration sections to use
# in your getmail rc file.  You need one file for each mail account you
# want to retrieve mail from.  These files should be placed in your
# getmail configuration/data directory (default: $HOME/.getmail/).
# If you only need one rc file, name it getmailrc in that directory,
# and you won't need to supply any commandline options to run getmail.

# Example 1:  simplest case of retrieving mail from one POP3 server and
# storing all messages in a maildir.

type = SimplePOP3Retriever
server = mail.mindspring.com
username = [EMAIL PROTECTED]
password = **************

type = Maildir
path = ~/Maildir/
message_log = ~/.getmail/log
delete = true

Does this help?
