Ladies & gents
I'm having a wee little prob with fetchmail here which I can't
figure out & the altar of google hasn't answered my prayers either.
I'm running it as a std user to dump remote mail into spool
on a lan box where I want to get at it myself
What happens is
rom user at wherever.tld Tue Sep 24 12:46:45 2002
or similar is addeded to the top of each mail & as a result
$MAILCLIENT doesn't recognise a valid mbox & barfs
changing rom to From: seems to make a difference but that's something I'd
rather not have to do :)
The fetchmailrc is as below
the (client) machine itself is is RH 7.2 box with
fetchmail-5.9.0-11 being installed it also has
postfix-1.1.11 there too though I suspect that this & procmail (3.21)
aren't the problem!
does anyone have any ideas as to why this is happening or more
importantly, how to make it go away!
