I use sylpheed too to read emails downloaded with fetchmail. I did
exactly what you described to configure my installation, so it's weird
you're not being able to read email. What exactly happens? Have you
checked the"Receive" tab on the preferences dialog? (spool settings
should match yours, and"Incorporate from spool" must be activated). Are
you sure fetchmail is delivering messages locally to the right place
(/var/spool/mail)? Can you list emails after they're downloaded
with'mail' console app?
