following up from my message yesterday, I thought I would note a couple of

The version of fetchmail included has a bug that produces an error saying

Can you be more specific about that bug, send config files and logfiles
etc? I will forward it to the package maintainer.
I see no special updates for you on our ftp server.
I assume you are referring to the Fetchmail bug? If so, then it is
a known bug that the SUSE developers should be aware of. No problem
with SUSE specific packages, but with the general fetchmail source. It was a
while ago now, but I did a google search and found out about the bug
immediately. A simple upgrade to the latest version fixed it.
the thing I still haven't resolved is why since upgrading to SUSE
7.1, I haven't been able to put a .procmailrc in my home folder and
have it work. I get kernel messages about there being a suspicious
procmailrc file. Having it in /etc is fine but it still doesn't
pick up everything as well as the 7.0 installation did.
(looking forward to imac/PISMO powers saving features in 2.4.5! :^)
