If you has procmail installed, I prefer use procmail as MDA, not SMTP on
localhost. Because I'v made such mistake for a few times, So many mail lost.
In .fetchmailrc, it looks like this:
user xxx ....
options mda "procmail -d %T", ...
I think if the target user is right who start fetchmail, "-d %T" option can not
be used. It works for me.
And in command line, you can use -m option to specify. Just like this:
fetchmail -m "procmail" ....
Good Luck everybudy, no more mail lost.

Subject: [fetchmail]SMTP connect to localhost failed
Thought I'd share this with all.
Over the weekend I came back to:
fetchmail: can't raise the listener;
falling back to $procmail -d %Tfetchmail:
about to deliver with: $procmail -d admin
sh: -d: command not found
As a result fetchmail spawned 'sh -d' which became defunct and a zombie
process was left for each failed attempt.
The problem was postfix not starting after the server was moved.
