I just tried it (without "is root" and with the password in quotes) and I'm
getting the same result.
fetchmail: POP3> USER myuser
fetchmail: POP3< +OK password required for user myuser(_at_)myisp(_dot_)ca
fetchmail: POP3> PASS *
fetchmail: POP3< -ERR Authentication failed
fetchmail: Authentication failed
fetchmail: Authorization failure on myuser(_at_)pop(_dot_)myisp(_dot_)ca
Do you think that having a username different than my email prefix is an
issue or my problem is elsewhere ?
Elsewhere - none of my ISP logins have anything in common with the
mail addresses associated.
Running a tcpdump (or your favourite traffic capture program) and
comparing the results from OE and fetchmail may help you work out
what's going on.
All I can tell you is that you're not passing the right
username/password combo, but then you'd already guessed that :-) It's
the why that's I can't tell.
Please keep list traffic on the list.
