    I'm attempting to set up a new imap server, using FC4 and dovecot. I have succeeded in getting fetchmail to download messages when called from a CLI, but cannot see the messages in my MUA, so presumably either dovecot or kmail is looking at the wrong place.

    Where does fetchmail store the messages by default?

    That depend on the way how you use fetchmail. Please pust your fetchmail config (xxxx out username and password :) )

    If you use system user accounts, you can try to use "is anne fetchall" if the userna,me is anne.

    Please have a look at your mal logfile (in /var/log directory) if you get any errors.

    If i remember correctly, dovecot uses Maildir format. Have you configured postfix to deliver messages to the users maildir?

    Thanks for replying, Till. With help from you and many others I found that the format of fetchmail does need to be different from my old one - perhaps a difference in version, as the old server would be quite out of date. Anyway, fetchmail is now working. Thanks again.
