>Ronan, Thanks for the prompt response but I am a newbie going on
intermediate and am a lot lost. Mozilla mail will send and fetch
(although fetch always takes two attempts) so I'm assuming a config file
somewhere needs amending. I have tried everything I know including
substituting for fetchmail with sendmail, postfix etc but I think stale
files hang around after an apt-get remove and an apt-get install. I am
only trying to get Mutt working well and reading my /var/mail directory.
Perhaps I am missing another way of getting there?
