just a haunch, could it be Kerio has some kind of setting in it's IMAP implementation that prevents fetchmal from successfully downloading mails?

Trying to set up a mail archive, figured I could just download all the mails with fetchmail (tried on Ubuntu 10.04 and OS X 10.6.7). This is what I get, (yes, German, essentially a timeout):

root<_at_>mailarchiva:/home/derp# fetchmail -a -k -v -u "admin" -S localhost/8091 -p imap
fetchmail: WARNUNG: Vom Betrieb mit root-Rechten wird abgeraten.
Geben Sie das Passwort für admin<_at_> ein:
fetchmail: 6.3.9-rc2 fragt ab (Protokoll IMAP) um Mo 16 Mai 2011 16:07:20 CEST: Abfrage gestartet
Versuche, mit zu verbinden...Verbindung fehlgeschlagen.
fetchmail: Verbindung zu [] fehlgeschlagen: Die Wartezeit für die Verbindung ist abgelaufen.
IMAP-Verbindung zu fehlgeschlagen: Die Wartezeit für die Verbindung ist abgelaufen
fetchmail: 6.3.9-rc2 fragt ab (Protokoll IMAP) um Mo 16 Mai 2011 16:07:41 CEST: Abfrage beendet
fetchmail: Abfragestatus=2 (SOCKET)
fetchmail: normale Beendigung, Status 2

Tried with two different Kerio servers, no dice. Tried with a Cyrus IMAP server, fetchmail works like a charm.

I have set up these two Kerio servers, is there some security setting I have set preventing fetchmail so work?

it should work - I tested it now with 7.2.0 RC2

Is the non-encrypted IMAP service running? Is it available on given hostname - what IMAP server reports if you try in terminal:
telnet 143
additionaly you can try login with:
001 login admin <password>
and it should be successful

Try also enable IMAP server debug module (Webadministration -> right click to the Debug log area -> Messages...) to see more
