other IDs.

I've found the fix. I had to add "mail_location =
mbox:~/mail:INBOX=/var/spool/mail/%u" to dovecot.conf.

Now to get fetchmail going.

AARGH, should have caught it, I think the default for 2.0 is 'mbox:~/Mail...'

What I do with fetchmail is set up the user ~/.fetchmailrc as:

poll protocol IMAP : user david with password ********** ssl sslfingerprint "A2:6B:1A:F3:F6:2D:58:75:F4:33:B8:91:AB:C1:09:27"

<ALL ONE LINE - pw and fingerprint changed to protect the innocent>

To get the correct sslfingerprint, just run:

fetchmail -cv

from the command line after generating the dovecot certs. fetchmail will show you the fingerprint it is expecting. Just use that for the fingerprint in ~/.fetchmailrc
