Cron Daemon error? Help please

I keep getting the following email from Cron Daemon, each time my cron job is run:

fetchmail: SMTP error: 250 2.0.0 Reset state

I must add however that the cron job does indeed get completed, and as mentioned, I then receive an e-mail stating the above, 1 minute later.

The cronjob is:

10 * * * * /home/username/getmail.script > /dev/null >2 /dev/null

The contents of the getmail.script file, simply contains the fetchmail command.

The .fetchmailrc file contains:

poll protocol pop3 username "user" password "pass"

AS I say the tasks are being completed, but I do keep getting this email.

All help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance...
