At the moment I have my .fetchmailrc file set as follows

poll protocol pop3 user laurie.turpin is root here

It produces the following output when I run fetchmail

Enter password for laurie.turpin at <PASSWORD>
fetchmail: Repoll immediately on laurie.turpin at
34 messages for laurie.turpin at (143426 octets)
reading message laurie.turpin at 1 of 34 (2907 octets)
SMTP connect to localhost failed
fetchmail: SMTP transaction error while fetching for
fetchmail: Query status=10(SMTP)

In my mandrake 8.2 system
Mozilla is setup as follows

Incoming mail is POP3 from server
Outgoing mail is SMTP to
my email address is laurie.turpin at
My username is laurie.turpin

Can you help please.
putting my password into the .fetchmailrc file makes no difference other
than I not requested to enter my password.
