I am doing it a bit differently, I have a system wide fetchmail running
which fetches mail from all my accounts and could if I wanted put the
mail in various accounts on my system. The trick is to add to the end of
the user line (in your .fetchmailrc "there is <localuser> here" where
<localuser> is your user name. Getting the system wide fetchmail is a
little more difficult, but putting the above in your ~/.fetchmailrc
should put the mail in the right place. I know its long and boring, but
you should consider reading the fetchmail man page. Remember that when
it comes to R'ing TFM the search command is your friend. Good luck.
