      Description

      Some emails are rejected by FetchMail and there seems to be no way around this. In the fetchmail logs, the following type of error can be found repeatedly:

      INFO | Rejected mail with an invalid Received: header at index 1. Message ID: <...>. Flags: Seen = false, Delete = false.
      INFO | Ignoring recipient header. Using configured recipient as new envelope recipient: <email@address>. Message ID: <...>. Flags: Seen = false, Delete = false.

      I need an urgent workaround to force emails to be downloaded in cases like this. Emails that seems perfectly ok in webmail are not downloaded.

      From a web search I found the following possible solution, but it does not work for me:
      <fetchmail ...>
        <fetch ...>
          <remoteReceivedHeader index="1" reject="false" leaveonserver="true" markseen="true"/>
        </fetch>
      </fetchmail>
