[fetchmail] NGPopper/Earthlink problem

Hi all...

I have a new problem with one of my mail servers. It seems that earthink
changed something.
My customer has a domain-pop. everything was working fine on wednesday but
on thursday all mail sent to the users now goes to the postmaster because
fetchmail is not seeing the real 'to' address.
Can anyone tell me if there's anything I can do to fix this?

Server is redhat61

[fetchmail] disable show dots but enable complete logging?

Hi

I'm running fetchmail via cron :

0-59/5 * * * * /usr/bin/fetchmail -a -s --syslog

Is there a way to disable the dots but at the same time log the data in 
/var/log/maillog.

With the above option "-s" it disables the dots in the cron mail, but it 
removes the nice log information that used to get logged in the 
/var/log/maillog file.

However, the FATAL errors like DNS failure or AUTH errors are logged.

Any ideas?

Regards

Rishi

[fetchmail] spams wriggling through


Hi... I'm a new list member, even though I have been happily
using fetchmail for a number of years now. A very much belated
thank you to Mr Raymond and colleagues!

I've hit on a problem though that I can't explain or resolve
and I'm hoping someone might be able to help.

I'm being plagued by a spam outfit - the usual stuff - visit their 
pornographic webcam sites. I wouldn't normally worry about it
because the spamfilter I'm using seems to sift most of the junk,
however there is a problem.

All of the spams originating from this one outfit, are addressed
to non-existent local accounts. I'm using fetchmail 6.2.2 in
multi-drop mode.

The emails to non-existent accounts should, because of the
postmaster setting in .fetchmailrc, be re-addressed by
fetchmail to a local account called 'rubbish'. Normally this
works as intended and I'm not plagued in this way by spams to
non-existent accounts, but this one spammer seems to have found
a way around the mechanism, and his spams are landing in the
mailbox of my primary account called 'michael'.

Below is an example of one of his spams. Note that it is
addressed To: adorablek but is re-addressed by fetchmail
to 'michael' even though .fetchmailrc has postmaster set
to re-address to the 'rubbish' account.

Two last things.. none of these non-existent accounts are
in /etc/aliases and I'm using fetchmail 6.2.2, full settings
at the foot of this email.

Hoping someone might be able to help.

Rgds,

Michael

[fetchmail] Hanging fetchmail processes

Hello,

I am experiancing a problem with fetchmail where it hangs during a polling
session.  I don't know what causes the process to hang, but I think it maybe
causes by the network connection going down in the middle of the polling
session.  I run fetchmail through cron, so when one process hangs mail just
stops flowing.  After I kill the hung processes, everythings works normal
untill the next time a process hangs (1-2 weeks)??

Has anyone seen this problem before???  Maybe their is something in the
config to detect a hang and abort??

Regards,

Joseph Watson

Anything is possible, but you've given pretty much zero information to go 
on.

What version of fetchmail are you running?
What operating system (including version) is it running on?
What mail server (including version) is it forwarding to?
What is in your .fetchmailrc file?
What is in the (fetchmail and mail server) logs from a hung session?
Why aren't you running it in daemon mode anyway?

  Please DO NOT send me ANY email directly unless it's a privacy issue.
       Reply-to mangled to assist those who don't read the above.
