I have never seen the above error message.
I have been successful using the the following .fetchmailrc file:
set logfile /var/log/fetchmail.log
set invisible # suppress "Received:" line fetchmail adds
set no bouncemail
poll "my.server.net" # *** change as appropriate ***
username "MyUserName" # *** change as appropriate ***
password "MyPassword" # *** change as appropriate ***
nokeep # delete successfully received
mda "/usr/local/bin/procmail -d %T" # pass message to the local MDA
Is your .fetchmailrc file similar to the above?
