This is usually routing issue. Check the usual suspects with your fav
route tracing tool. If nothing stands out try giving fetchmail the a

just an overloaded server/connection/device on there end if the trace
is ok. Which is what you mentioned. But here is some vindication.
Have a good one, sourpuss :)
