Hi there, this is probably a question that has been answered a zillion times but here goes. I'm trying to set a linux mail server (Red Hat 5.2), it's duties is simply to forward all outbound mail to my ISP and obtain incoming mail from my POP3 account on my ISP's mail server. I am using fethmail to obtain the mail from my POP3 account and sendmail as the MDA. I've setup my .fetchmailrc correctly according to the many samples I've seen, however when I execute fetchmail is seems to be dowloading something but no mail is posted to my mail box. I've setup the aliases correctly as I have a different user Ids on my linux and ISP's machine. If I do fetchamil -V, I can see the message header being downloaded and forwarded to sendmail however the actual message body is being ignored. Even though the message header looks to be downloaded, nothing appears in my mailbox. Anyone got any advice or could point me to a suitable web page.
