http://forums.fedoraforum.org – I get quite an annoying failure with fetchmail and irssi (possibly other networking apps but these two are the ones where it is the most obvious). When I call fetchmail, I get the following error: Code: $ fetchmail -v fetchmail: 6.3.21 querying pop.mail.yahoo.fr (protocol POP3) at Fri 10 Aug 2012 10:58:55 PM CEST: poll started fetchmail: couldn't find canonical DNS name of pop.mail.yahoo.fr (pop.mail.yahoo.fr): Name or service not known fetchmail: 6.3.21 querying pop.mail.yahoo.fr (protocol POP3) at Fri 10 Aug 2012 10:58:56 PM CEST: poll completed fetchmail: Query status=11 (DNS (HowTos)
