Why are you using cron?? Just start fetchmail in daemon mode and it will
do what you want:

[root@Nemesis david]# fetchmail -f /etc/fetchmailrc
[root@Nemesis david]# cat /etc/fetchmailrc
set daemon 600
set postmaster david
set logfile /var/log/fetchmail.log
poll proto pop3 user pass
thepassword is david here

Why am (was) I using it? Probably because I just spent a week getting fetchmail/postfix/cyrus/mysql to work and I'm brain dead! :)

Thanks for the kick in the pants to bring me back to reality.
