I have been using fetchmail to fetch my mail from a mailbox on mail.webfaction.com

Three days ago I stopped receiving mail in the mail reader that fetchmail is supposed to be fetching for. (mutt)

I know I am receiving mail in that mailbox - I can see it from the webmail interface - but it is not being fetched by fetchmail. I have been using the same .fetchmailrc file for about five years and never had any trouble. Have any settings changed that I need to change in .fetchmailrc?

Thanks.

We don't provide fetchmail as a binary, I looked at your account and noticed it was built from source. I was able to execute the binary, and upon execution it mentioned it was 'awakening' and upon logging out of SSH it terminated itself with a similar message. I also noticed some other custom .bash_profile scripts upon execution. We didn't change anything as far as I am aware which would impact this. I suggest verifying you can authenticate with the same username as the application via webmail, if this functions you can submit a support ticket specifying which mailbox you are using to connect and a way to trigger the app connecting in real time and we can provide you the logs which indicate the failure.
