here's the output of running fetchmail -v
my .fetchmailrc looks like this
poll pop.gmail.com with proto POP3 user 'username' there with password 'password' is 'name' here mda "/usr/bin/procmail -d %T" options keep fetchall ssl sslcertck sslcertpath /etc/ssl/certs
Any idea what's wrong? I do in fact have new mail.
