Greetings,

I am running Courier IMAP and fetchmail on my Debian box to grab mail being delivered to my account(s) on my web host's server.

I typically then connect to it from Outlook on a WnXP box. Everything works fine with one exception:

Every time I reboot the Debian box, ALL of the mail still remaining on the web host's server is fetched and then displayed to me in Outlook.

I'm assuming there is some startup script somewhere to control this but I'm rather new to all this and don't really know where to begin looking.

Any ideas?



Here is my fetchmailrc file in case that matters.


Code:
set postmaster "myUser"
set bouncemail
set no spambounce
set properties ""
set daemon 60
#set logfile "/home/myUser/fetchmail.log"

poll mail.example.com uidl with proto POP3
       user 'dave+example.com' there with password '******' is 'myUser' here
 options keep mda "/usr/bin/procmail -d myUser"
