Re: Fetchmail with mails of mailing lists...

Hi sandip,
   Are you talking about  H?l?Delivered-To: $u   option in sendmail.conf
which we did i remember to one server online?
   I have added this option by virtue of which there is one option in
header.i can see...

Delivered-To: <dheeraj.anand@xxxxxxxxxxx>
X-Fetchmail-Warning: recipient address linux-delhi@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
didn't match any
    local name

means "Delivered-To" is there , this is the example of one user subscribed to

There is another example of one user who is subscribe to some flash coder
mailing list

for <harender.kumar@xxxxxxxxxxx>;
X-Fetchmail-Warning: recipient address flashcoders@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
didn't match any
    local name
If you wish i will sent you the exact header at you personal account..
It am using fetchmail-5.3.1-1  , may be the syntax of .fetchmailrc is wrong
i will check, & let you know
