Now, you're right... But it appears when I set the new fetchmail
settings.

From postfix logs:
Apr 28 22:38:41 lilo postfix/local[2056]: D96BF395:
to=<lct(_at_)megrapet(_dot_)org>, relay=local, delay=1, status=bounced (mail
forwarding loop for lct(_at_)megrapet(_dot_)org)

I don't exactly see why... I must drink another coffee.

[coffee]

Ooooops... I've set both firewall and workstation 'smtpaddress' to
megrapet.org, not to each hostname. I must try with full hostname.


Ok, each .fetchmailrc has now its smtphost and smtpaddress set to the
correct hostname of the firewall and the workstation...

It's a miracle... It works perfectly ! You were right. It does exactly
what it told. And, now, I understand a little bit more why there were a
case of mail forwarding loop (cause delivering the mail 2 times to
lct(_at_)localhost(_dot_)megrapet(_dot_)org).

THANKS A LOT FOR YOUR HELP !!!

Laurent.
