I have been using fetchmail to download mails from gmail on Suse 10.3.
I recently installed Suse 11.2 and having a problem with downloaded mail.
All mails are disappearing. Fetchmail successfully download mails but they disappear. I am running postfix as a mail agent.
I would appreciate if anybody can explain what is wrong.
Here are my ~/.fetchmailrc for user'voyager'
# Configuration created Tue Sep 26 18:13:41 2006 by fetchmailconf
set postmaster "voyager"
set no spambounce
set properties ""
set daemon 600
poll pop.gmail.com with proto POP3 and options no dns
user 'gamil_id_here' there with password 'gmail_pass_here' is 'voyager' here options fetchall ssl sslcertck sslcertpath '/home/voyager/.certificate'
Following is my /etc/hosts
::1 localhost ipv6-localhost ipv6-loopback
127.0.0.1 voyager voyager
127.0.0.2 voyager.cosmos.net voyager
And here is the log in /var/log/mail.info
The domain name cosmos.net is a fake given to network setting.

I am answering to myself hoping this can help someone who has the same problem.
It seems that fetchmail does not work well with postfix. Fetchmail FAQ does not mention about postfix either so I guess it is not supported by fetchmail.
Problem is solved by replacing postfix with sendmail. It is kind of disappointment that open Suse is shipping uncooperative packages together as a default.
