# Edit carefully, see /usr/share/doc/packages/yast2-mail/fetchmailrc.txt
poll "" protocol AUTO : user "constant" there with password
"xxxxxx" is "cons" here ;
poll "" with proto pop3 timeout 50, and tracepolls
user "cbroueriusvannidek@xxxxxxxxx" there with password "yyyyyy" is "cons"
here,fetchall ssl
