Red face fetcmail doesnt terminates after fetching mails


Hi
fetchmail on my rhel3 works perfectly but there is a problem that it doesnt terminates automatically after fetching mails.

I am running fetchmail almost every hour manually and have to terminate it by cntrl-c every time.
any script or modification is reqd to run it properly??

You wouldn't happen to be invoking fetchmail with the -d option, would you?

No problem. Glad you got it working. (Also glad that you, unlike some users, can read a manpage)
