how should i configure fetchmail? - there seems to be mention of a -MTA
Should I setup a specific user to run the fetchmail command,
e.g. at the moment i've setup a user called mailbox which is used for
the collection of mail.
or is there a standard user which should be used when collecting the mail
form the ISP? by this i don't mean the ISP POP Username, im refering to
the local user of which mailbox the mail is downloaded into.
