Hmm, I didn't read your message properly. The .fetchmailrc will get the
messages from the server but to route than to mailboxes I use procmail(1).
Put this line in ~/.forward:
and then construct a ~/.procmailrc to route them. This is mine,
primarily for routing mail from the FreeBSD lists into individual
mailboxes (current, stable, questions etc.). You should use the
To: field (e,g, the ``* ^TO_.*mark'' entry) if you want to sort by
# routes incoming mail to appropriate mailboxes
* ^Sender:.owner-freebsd-\/[^@]+ at FreeBSD.ORG
