I am using fetchmail release 6.2.5+SSL+INET6 I am using os x and I have been
getting an error getaddrinfo (mail.mac.com.pop3) Query status=2 (SOCKET)
My configuration is poll mail.mac.com proto pop3:
user "username" password "Password" is Username here
I was wandering if someone could help me solve this problem.
Can you provide the output from "fetchmail -v -v" showing this
problem. Did it used to work, or is this the first time you've tried?
Also, what's the output of "nslookup mail.mac.com"?
