I expect there's more to the error message than that.  Whatever is
giving you this message is telling you that you tried to make it do
something it can't do.  You should find out what, and stop trying to
make it do that.

Try this:
#!/bin/sh
if /usr/bin/fetchmail > /dev/null 2>&1; then
  play sound.wav
fi

The "2>&1" above will suppress it, if it is indeed coming from
fetchmail.  But the problem it's telling you about will still exist.

The same way you normally would.
