Fetchmail needs to write to a file to keep track of UIDL information for pop3. In system wide installs, this value is not set, leading to failure to record UIDL information.
Install fetchmail system wide, polling a pop3 host without mta line in fetchmailrc. Local mta/smtp delivery
add --idfile ${fetchmail_fetchid_file} to fetchmail rc script, where ${fetchmail_fetchid_file} is a fetchmail writable directory
