fetchmail-6.4.14 (released 2020-11-26, 27608 LoC):

fetchmail-6.4.13 (released 2020-10-25, 27608 LoC):


  • Errors about lock file (= pidfile) creation could be lost in daemon configurations (-d option, or set daemon) when using syslog. Now they are also logged to syslog. Found verifying a pidfile creation issue on 6.4.12 that was previously reported by Alex Hall of Automatic Distributors.
  • If the lock file cannot be removed (no write permission on directory), try to truncate it, and if that fails, report error.
  • If the pidfile was non-default, fetchmail -q or --quit would malfunction and claim no other fetchmail were running, because it did not read the configuration files or merge the command line options, thus it would look for the PID in the wrong file.


  • Lockfile (= pidfile) creation errors are now logged with filename and reason.
