fetchmail localhost connection refused

Postby obaino » Sun Dec 03, 2017 2:46 am

Hello,
I want to check my email using mutt / fetchmail / procmail.
I've set it up successfully on two debian machines but on my linuxmint 18.2 xfce I'm getting the following at fetchmail.log

Code: Select all

fetchmail: connection to localhost:smtp [127.0.0.1/25] failed: Connection refused.
fetchmail: Connection errors for this poll:
name 0: connection to localhost:smtp [127.0.0.1/25] failed: Connection refused.
fetchmail: SMTP connect to localhost failed


.fetchmailrc

Code: Select all

# Configuration for forthnet / cyta / glouglouglou
set postmaster "nikolask"
set bouncemail
set no spambounce
set softbounce
set properties ""
set daemon 60
set logfile /home/nikolask/.fetchmail.log
