Sorry I knew this :)
Mandrake Linux 8.2
I don't have logs because the mail server does not have a real certificate
and fetchmail complains that the domain name does not match the certificate
domain name. So I piped error to /dev/null. I will change this so I can
catch the logs from a hung session.
I was not running it as a daemon because I want to check mail more
frequently during work hours (2min for work hours, 10min for nights and
weekends). Can the daemon do this??

From: "Joseph Watson" <josephwatson(_at_)fse(_dot_)us>
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
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??
Anything is possible, but you've given pretty much zero information to go
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.
