Humm, good Q. Its launched at boot time by this line in rc.local:
su gene -c "fetchmail -d 90 --fetchmailrc /home/gene/.fetchmailrc"
.fetchmailrc looks benign wrt that option. It normally just sucks what is
there and unread. It will all be unread cuz I don't use the webmail
I'm polling 3 different servers, all with essentually the same options ex pw
and username of course.
I think it will eventually get it all, but with SA in the chain, lets just say
its slow and let the imagination come up with descriptive ways to describe
how slow it is. With 3k+ messages to go, it will not finish today.
