Subject: Fetchmail WARNING: Running as root is discouraged....
What I did was download the source (yumdownloader -source fetchmail) and
modify the source to comment out the message. Then compile it and
I then added an entry to cron as root and run it every 6 minutes. No
message to log and it works fine. Not sure why they added the message
sometime during FC5.
Why run as root?
I use this in /etc/rc.local:
su - nbecker -c 'fetchmail -d 60'
