I thought this as well but....
10:03:35 srw srw $ dig clara.net +short
10:04:27 srw srw $ dig pop.clara.net +short
So whilst pop.clara.net might work slightly better, it shouldn't matter,
and isn't obviously the cause.
Does "ls -l $HOME/.fetchmailrc" show the file? This checks that
/home/paul is the right place (sounds right, but you never know).
Do you have "fetchmailconf" installed? Might save a lot of pain.
