Taking options from command line
No mailservers set up -- perhaps /home/ges/.fetchmailrc is missing?
This is the start of my /usr/local/etc/fetchmailrc file:
# Configuration created Sun Jun 25 13:57:54 2006 by fetchmailconf 1.52
$Revision: 4740 $
set logfile "/usr/home/ges/logs/fetchmail.log"
set postmaster "postmaster"
set no spambounce
set properties ""
set daemon 900
I created the log file, gave it 0666 permission and changed file and group
ownership to fetchmail respectively. Still, there is nothing ever written
to the file. Any logging that is done goes to the system /var/mail/maillog
log. Other than that, everything works fine.
What am I doing wrong here?
A straw vote only shows which way the hot air blows.
