fetchmail localhost connection refused

Post by 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

# forthnet
poll mail.forthnet.gr with proto POP3
		user 'glouglouglou.forthnet.gr' pass ********** is 'nikolask' here ssl keep
		
# glouglouglou
poll mail.dealemporio.gr with proto POP3
       user 'info@glouglouglou.gr' pass ********** is 'nikolask' here keep
       
# cyta

LOGFILE=$HOME/.procmail.log
LOG=""

Possibly the following (rather old) thread will help:

I'm having similar problems with fetchmail, but it looks like my system (cinammon 18.3) has neither sendmail nor postfix. Working to install sendmail, see what happens.
