Mine does. My .fetchmailrc file has the details for several different
mailservices. Fetchmail runs as a background task and wakes up every X
seconds, stepping through the .fetchmailrc file one server at a time.

I posted an example of how it's set up a few days ago, in this thread.

NB: Don't set the interval too short. Service providers may start
blocking access for over-use. Or, another problem can be that your
fetchmail run might not finish completing before you ask it to do the
next run. I set mine for about 9 minute intervals.

Sounds about right.

[tim@localhost ~]$ uname -r

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored. I
read messages from the public lists.
