Q-Mail fetchmail Authfail


I am configurig qmail for testing purpose now,

Below message quite long, but as i think this an interesting problem

-I am able to sendmail but while downloading mails it gives me error message,
-I don't have registered domain yet
-I am downloading mail to the mail server itself

# fetchmail -v

==============

I think problem is somewhere with fetchmail file or something related to it, becz when do
#ifdown eth0 (eth0 is connected to internet, since i don't have domain registered yet and i am able to send mails put could not able to download)

# fetchmail -v
fetchmail: 6.2.0 querying mail. jack.com (protocol POP3) at Fri 14 Jan 2005 06:41:07 AM IST: poll started
fetchmail: fetchmail: getaddrinfo(mail. jack.com.pop3)

fetchmail: Query status=2 (SOCKET)

When i doing fetchmail it is trying to connect to internet since i don't have registered domain yet, it is not able to download messages


Any help appreciated
