In my case, I had old syntax that needed correction and didn't remember 
when my .fetchmailrc file had been modified last.   I somewhat got that 
fixed and ended up pulling down email from gmail with talkingarch so now 
need to check my .fetchmail.log file out for details.  I want nothing of 
fetchmail in system logs since if I put it in $HOME in its own log file 
I know where to look when things break for whatever reason.
