fetchmail will generate warning messages in certain circumstances (for
instance, when leaving oversized messages on the server or login to

If this warning message is then refused by the SMTP listener that
fetchmail is forwarding the message to, fetchmail crashes and does not
collect further messages until it is restarted.
