Hi group,
since I installed SuSE7.3 and KDE 2.2.1 fetchmail doesnt work with some
These are the messages coming fetchmailing from arcor:
ulli:~ # fetchmail -vv

fetchmail: socket error while fetching from
fetchmail: Query status=2 (SOCKET).
I am connected to arcor and if I use kmail I can download the mails from
their server. Under SuSE7.0 fetchmail worked properly for all my accounts.
There seems to be a protocoll problem, but I do not find parameters to
change in fetchmailconf .
TIA for some hints
