By default fetchmail delivers to an SMTP server (your local one).

It seems a little strange that "localhost:smtp" should be
205.178.145.65/25 instead of 127.0.0.1/25.

1: Why is it using a public IP address instead of 127.0.0.1 ?
2: Might you have firewall rules blocking connection to
   205.178.145.65/25?
   (Personally I use REJECT instead of DROP; it makes things fail faster.)

Also, personally, I use procmail when delivering from fetchmail, eg:

  mda  "procmail $HOME/rc/mail/procmailrc"
