Aaahhhh ... ok.
But as it worked in the past I always used it - I guess I basically
misunderstood the description of it ...

That works pretty fine!
I just created an new account called mailsystem, set 'postuser =
mailsystem', and changed my fetchmail scripts to:
Tatatataaaaa ..... :-)
Thanks a lot!!!
And now I have two more questions:
a) is it possible to auto-subscribe to all lists with prefix 'share.',
so I don't have to logon to that mailbox to do the subscription manually?
b) why did the way I explained work in the past? (I'm not kidding!)
Do you have an idea why it worked in the past? (I'm not kidding!)
