    Fetchmail problem


    My setup is RH 9, sendmail-8.12.8-4, fetchmail-6.2.0-3.

    I m using multidrop in fetchmail.

    Fetchmail is not delivering messages if email-id is mentioned in BCC. It is delivering to the root. how can I sort this problem?

    Thanks in advance.

    are you running fetchmail as root? and sendmail? that might be delivery problem, personaly I use procmail, not a full blown delivery agent, but it will take mail from fetchmail and hand it to the appropriate user. Then I use postfix for my full blownmailserver but the most important part is aliasing, that is also a likely problem. It is probably defaulting your mail to root. Look at your alialses file for anythign suspicous, having never used sendmail with much sucess i canot offer much more than that.
