Fetchmail - How does i configure it?


I begin with one Redhat 9.0 server today. Sendmail and fetchmail are installed, configured and running very well. I'm new admin, i need change the time duration of fetchmail run (now, it run every 15 min).

I think it was configured in the /etc/crond.hourly, but when i open this file, no line containt word "fetchmail" or something like that. I don't know much about linux server, i guess fetchmail is running as deamon, but i don't know how to see the status of it

Please help me to verify the status of running mode of fetchmail and how can i change the time duration between 2 run.

check /etc/init.d/fetchmail for options. Specifically, the -d xxx option man fetchmail under "daemon options" for information on setting this value
