You probably need to do something like this in your .fetchmailrc
defaults localdomain mylocaldomain.co.uk
poll mailserver at somewhere protocol pop3 username "pop3accountname"
password "password" is "localname" here smptaddress mylocaldomain.co.uk
I'm not sure that's totally correct off the top of my head but it should
give you enough of an idea to fill in the gaps from the man page.
Replace 'is "localname"' with 'is *' if you use multidrop.
