Fetchmail DISASTER

This is a real disaster
I configured fetchmail on my RH7.1 to get mail from my ISP A/c but now the mails are nowhere.  I had 256 very important mails which I could see gettingdownload (.............flushing) to my server when I ran fetchmail but whenI opened my local mail box it was not there neither was it anywhere else.THEY JUST VANISHED.
Following is my fetchmailrc my MTA is sendmail:
poll V-V via mail.isp.com
        protocol auto
        username myname.domain.com here is othername@isp.com there
        password abcdef
        smtphost 192.168.100.1
        pass8bits
        fetchall

where 192.168.100.1 is substituted by my mail server's IP.
Anybody has any idea where to look for my mails or what exactly went wrong; because I suppose if my local a/c settings are incorrect or for that matter any line in .fetchmailrc; fetchmail will not start & will instead give errors.
ANY HELP IS URGENT & WELCOME.
Thanks in advance.

if you run the fetchmail command with this conf, the mails will be in your users mail spool. as which user you run the command fetchmail. if it is root, login as root and type the command "mail". there you can see your mails. and replace your .fetchmailrc with the following one.

poll mail.yahoo.com
        proto pop3
        user "uday"
        pass "uaday123"
        is uday
        fetchall

Replace the following

     mail.yahoo.com  -->  your mail server
     uday            --->  your username
     uday123         -->   your password
     uady            -->  your username on RH7.1 (your machine)
