FW: Help Setting Up Fetchmail

I’ve found out some more information. The problem isn’t with fetchmail,
it is with the MDA it is trying to hand the mail off to. I am using
rt-mailgate.conf as my fetchmailrc file. I’ve pasted the relevant line

username username password password mda
c:/Progra~1/Ourinternet/Reques~1/rt/bin/rt-mailgate.in --url
http://localhost:8284 --queue GENERAL --action correspond"

All of the RT software is running on this box, so localhost should
resolve just fine. Does anyone know why this won’t work?

Subject: [rt-users] Help Setting Up Fetchmail

I’m running RT on a Windows box. I downloaded the installer and
followed the instructions from
http://wiki.bestpractical.com/index.cgi?WindowsOSInstallGuide. I am
running 3.0.12.

Everything is going well, except when Fetchmail runs to get mail from
the mail server I get the following error:

C:\Program Files\OurInternet\Common\fetchmail\bin>type
…\rt-mailgate.conf | fetchmail.exe -N -d 300 -f -

fetchmail: removing stale lockfile

fetchmail: starting fetchmail 6.2.5 daemon

3 messages for rt at mail.server (12704 octets).

reading message rt@mydomain:1 of 3 (4232 octets) .fetchmail: SIGPIPE

from an MDA or a stream socket error

fetchmail: socket error while delivering to SMTP host mail.server

fetchmail: Query status=2 (SOCKET)

fetchmail: sleeping at Tue Oct 24 17:18:12 2006

I’ve changed the name of the mail server and domain for privacy
purposes. I’ve found many posts on the 'Net about this error message,
but I haven’t found anything that has helped me. I did a basic install
of CYGWIN, that didn’t help. I downloaded the newest CYGWIN1.dll and
replaced the one in my C:\Program
Files\OurInternet\Common\fetchmail\bin. That didn’t help. I’ve since
restored that file to the original version.

I’ve also tried to access the mail server via POP3 and IMAP, I get the
same error each time. I think it is because of a problem with the MTA
that fetchmail is trying to hand the mail off too. The trouble is I
don’t know what to do to fix it. Any help would be appreciated.
