Those are not the only choices. I run Fetchmail as an unprivileged user
named "mailagent" which then passes the mail to Mailagent (could just as

It appears that the fetchmail init script does something like this
already. At least on my mail server, it is running as user "103".
Yes, it appears that my method (which I developed before Fetchmail had a
daemon mode (initial version, before Fetchmail existed)) is obsolete.
I'm not sure why this user doesn't have a name, but regardless, it's not
a root process.
103 should be the user "fetchmail".
yeah. I need to find out why `ps aux` shows fetchmail run by user
'103' and exim run by user '101' instead of by their names...
