Even that's not needed as there is a fetchmail service defined in
/etc/init.d/ as soon as the fetchmail package gets installed.

And _all_ services from /etc/init.d/ are also considered by systemd.

In which case why isn't his fetchmail service starting?
That's what this thread was originally about, wasn't it?

No, he started multiple threads. This one and

"Why doen't anyone speak about this?"


Looks more like nobody likes to listen. ;)

Please read
Which is what I responding to.

I gather from what Cristian is saying that he *does* have the fetchmail
package installed but that systemd is *not* picking up on the init script.

Or maybe it is ... and the script is failing.

With your 'maybe' you summarize my overall impression very well. :)

Anyways, there's always CRON, as I suggested.

And there might be one or two Mail User Agents (MUAs) our there which
might be able to handle mail boxes too. Big, big maybe. ;)
