Re: [fetchmail]Fetchmail error Rob MacGregor Tue Mar 12 23:06:24 2002


fetchmai -V
This is fetchmail release 5.4.2

Please tell me what should I do ?

Well, I'd start by killing whatever is listening on port 25 and *then* starting sendmail... Try "netstat -pan | grep :25" as root.

   Please don't CC me on anything sent to mailing lists or send
       me email directly unless it's a privacy issue, thanks.
