Alas! Richard Lightman spake thus:
>     su daniel -c fetchmail -v -d 60

I guarantee this does not work. RTFM people!

This will run 'fetchmail', with no args, as daniel, and then su will not
know what to do with the -v and -d options that you passed to it.

Try:

su - daniel -c "fetchmail -v -d 60"

Compare 'su -c echo foo' with 'su -c "echo foo"'.
