Is that enough headers?

Here's the start of my .fetchmailrc:
set  daemon 300
set syslog
poll os2.ami.com.au proto POP3
        user summer pass noddynoddy is summer here

[root at emu summer]# fetchmail -V | head
This is fetchmail release 4.4.9
Linux emu.my.ami.com.au 2.0.34 #4 Thu Jun 11 18:26:37 WST 1998 i586

btw fetchmail 4.5.2 is current.
