pop username has to be username@domain
"fred@dslr.net" not just "fred"
password is your password
authentication method is either APOP or MD5-CRAM
port is 110 or 995 (with 'use SSL' checked)

Fetchmail: (By nwrickert See Profile)

Here's my ".fetchmailrc" entry

skip dslr via mail.dslr.net proto apop
user ********@dslr.net with pass "********" ssl is ******** here

The "skip" means to not automatically use this entry. I use fetchmail dslr to specify it. Change "skip" to "poll" to have that mailbox automatically checked whenever fetchmail is run.

Expand got feedback?
