but still none of them seem to give me a clue about how to solve the problem

fetchmail: client/server synchronization error while fetching from
fetchmail: Query status=7 (ERROR)
fetchmail: normal termination, status 7
The error crops up like client/server sync error and no mail is pulled out
of the mailbox. Well accoring to some mails in the list which i read ...
it is discussed as if it is more of a bandwidth problem .. the fact is i am
well connected and my local system using outlookexpress are able to easily
pull the mails from the same place but fetchmail is not able to .. i am
running redhat 7.2 and fetchmail ver 5.9.0-1 and the pop server i am trying
to connect is " Cubic Circle's v1.31" .
Is there any known remedy for this problem ?? can anyone please help me out
