poll with proto POP3
user 'myuser' there with password 'mypass' is 'localuser' here options flush
poll with proto POP3 port 995
user '' there with ssl with password 'mypass' is 'localuser' here options keep

Hi Experts,

I have no idea why to insert keyword 'with' I read other manual that the line can be written as:-
poll proto POP3 service 995
user '' password 'mypass' is 'localuser' here ssl keep fetchall

Other doubt is any sequence of options? For example "ssl keep fetchall" is identical to "keep ssl fetchall"?

Quote from the fetchmail manpage:
"You can use the noise keywords ’and’, ’with’, ’has’, ’wants’, and ’options’ anywhere in an entry to make it resemble English. They’re ignored, but but can make entries much easier to read at a glance. The punctuation characters ’:’, ’;’ and ’,’ are also ignored."
