Description Paul Thompson 2002-09-13 17:58:11 UTC
emerged the 5.9.14 fetchmail and it keeps trying to do some sort of SSL stuff,
and will not authenticate. My ~/.fetchmailrc is unchanged and looks like:

protocol pop3
user "user"
password "pass"
mda procmail -d user

In the failing case, here is a verbose log:

fetchmail: starting fetchmail 5.9.14 daemon 
fetchmail: 5.9.14 querying XXX (protocol POP3) at Fri, 13 Sep 2
002 18:41:50 -0400 (EDT): poll started
fetchmail: POP3< +OK POP3 XXX v2001.78rh server ready
fetchmail: POP3> CAPA
fetchmail: POP3< +OK Capability list follows:
fetchmail: POP3< TOP
fetchmail: POP3< LOGIN-DELAY 180
fetchmail: POP3< UIDL
fetchmail: POP3< STLS
fetchmail: POP3< USER
fetchmail: POP3< SASL LOGIN
fetchmail: POP3< .
fetchmail: POP3> STLS
fetchmail: POP3< +OK STLS completed
fetchmail: SSL connection failed.
fetchmail: Authorizaion failure on XXX
fetchmail: POP3> QUIT

where XXX is me and my server.

remerged 5.9.11 manually so I can get some mail:(

(just ask if more details are wanted.)

as a temporary solution while I test it myself.
emerge without the ssl variable set.

USE="-ssl" emerge fetchmail

Please let me know if you still have the problems connecting with 5.9.14 when
compiling out ssl support.
Comment 2 Paul Thompson 2002-09-17 21:00:41 UTC
I dont see the reported problem when merging without ssl. (perhaps unsuprisingly:)
I havent exerted any energy investigating the problem, but if you want me to
try stuff, or cough up more info I will.

Comment 3 Nick Hadaway 2002-10-08 10:52:58 UTC
fetchmail-6.1.0 has been released into portage which fixes this problem. 
With ssl support enabled OR disabled things should work with pop3 now.
