I've set it up a couple times, and just now tested it successfully
by hand. It's probably easier if you start by finding a working commandline
by hand, then put it into your fetchmail setup.
Also use the -v option to ssh to get more details about what ssh is
doing -- sometimes it takes a while for the forwarded port to be released,
so you might be hitting that if you're trying it repeatedly.
% ssh -v -f -L 1234:pop.sonic.net:110 atlantic sleep 60

I don't have a pop-style mailbox handy, or I'd be able to try that

Use ssh's RSA authentication if you aren't already.
