And this I assume will grab 25 at a pop and pass them off to procmail?  I have 
this set as the MDA at the top of that file.   I have mine set for 

defaults mda "/usr/bin/procmail -d gene"
set no bouncemail
set no spambounce
set daemon 90

Then the gmail stanza:
poll with proto pop3
        user ZZZZZZZZZZ with password XXXXXXXXXXX is gene
        options ssl

and no port # is spec'd.  Is not the default ssl port # 995?

I'll fix it up and restart fetchmail for grins, thanks Vikram & Merry 
Christmas to you and yours.

Cheers, Gene
