I have a pop3 account at my ISP that I'm trying to download my email from.
I'm getting an authorization failed message. I think it's cause by the fact
that my username is different than my email prefix
Here's the config:
Here's my .fetchmailrc:
[root(_at_)jflrh9 root]# more .fetchmailrc
poll pop.myisp.ca protocol pop3
user myuser is root
user myuser password "mypassword"
The "is root" isn't required if you're running this as root. The
quotes may also help (and if you RTFM you'll discover that almost all
the examples wrap the password in quotes).
Please keep list traffic on the list.

doesn't become a monster. Friedrich Nietzsche
