    Default fetchmail option

    I have a little problem with fetchmail
    Its the second time in the last 3 years that fetchmail waits endless for a answer from my provider.
    So i have to implement the -t function in the script fetchmail which is in /etc/init.d and was written by Stanislav Brabec.

    Iam not shure howto implement -t option for timeout in this script or should i implement -t option in fetchmailrc under /etc.

    I am using opensuse 10.1. (yes i wrote this in March 2010) I configured all users with yast.

    Can someone tell me the best way to implement the -t option with i think 500 seconds
    Thank you in advance

    The easiest solution seems to me to implement

    Code:
    timeout 500
    in /etc/fetchmailrc. Make sure that the permissions on this file are at most 0700 after editing it.

    Versions 2. and 3. are obviously wrong. But it could be:

    Code:
    defaults timeout 500
