Is the account that is executing the above cygrunsrv command a member of
the local Administrators group?  If not, then that would explain the
"Access is denied" error.  If so, then I have no idea why cygrunsrv is
failing for you.

BTW, the dani account must have the "Log on as a service" user right in
order for the service to successfully start.  I forgot to add this to my
README.  I have just updated the README which can be found at:

Now back to my workaround.  My suggestion was to just install fetchmail
as a service multiple times -- once for each user.  This is just
temporary until I finish porting the setuid aspects of fetchmail to
Cygwin.  However, you will have to determine why you can't install
fetchmail as a NT service for a single user, before you can attempt to
use this workaround.
