    Hi All,

    Here's the error I'm getting when I run "fetchmail --version":

    I have several issues with this:

    (1) I installed fetchmail 6.3.8 from source and it appears that my system only recognizes fetchmail 6.2.5 (from the error above). I installed the 6.3.8 version in /usr/bin which should've overrided the original 6.2.5 verision. There is another version of fetchmail in the fink folder (/sw/bin/fetchmail), but I think /usr/bin is first in my path and should take precedence.

    (2) The error above says "SSL is not enabled at ssl" however, when I installed 6.3.8 I configured it specifically for SSL support (i.e. ./configure --with-SSL). This was the reason I decided to upgrade to fetchmail 6.3.8 because version 6.2.5 would always give me certificate errors:

    I was still able to access my mail (via mutt), but it was never as secure as I wanted. Maybe this has nothing to do with the version I had, but anyways the fetchmail website says its better to have version 6.3.x.

    Anyways, if you have any ideas or suggestions please respond.

    Fink, XCode and Developer Tools installed

    Hmm, I got 6.3.8 on my 10.4.10 (intel) install:

    Jasmine:~ meerp$ fetchmail --version
    This is fetchmail release 6.3.8+GSS+SSL+KRB4+KRB5.
