hi john.
I've got fetchmail here and I've installed/uncompressed it and now I have an
error popping up complaining about the permissions.
here is just a little bit of my .fetchmailrc file
set daemon 300 # Poll at 5-minute intervals

 interface "sl0/" # SLIRP standard address
 user shauno is shauno

# Use this for production
poll protocol POP3:
 no dns,
 password nottelling:
any help from anyone out their would be greatly appreciated.

this has probably been covered a few months ago but to be truthful, I had to
