Description of problem:
Fetchmailconf was removed from the fetchmail package, as detailed in the 
* Tue Jun 11 2002 Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin@redhat.com> 5.9.0-15

- remove and obsolete the fetchmailconf subpackage (tkinter is gone, so it can't

However, tkinter *is* included in the beta release:

Perhaps this could be changed, and the fetchmailconf subpackage could be
included again?

I'm sorry about the late response.

I don't think fetchmailconf belongs in Fedora Core:  For a working fetchmail
setup it is usually necessary to configure more than just fetchmail.  If you
really need a GUI, you should be using an GUI mail client like Evolution
or Thunderbird anyway.
