Default Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier, MySQL And SquirrelMail (Debian Lenny

Hi everyone,

first of all thanks for all the great tutorials, some have been very helpfull to me already !

I recently set up a mailserver based on the "Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier, MySQL And SquirrelMail (Debian Lenny)" tutorial.

I was finally able to get a mailserver to work where I actually understand what is happening to an extend that I'm happy to use it "live".

I've set it up on a local server that is connected to the internet via a DSL connection.

I don't want to change the MX records of our domains to point to this
server as I don't want to risk loosing emails if the internet connection gets

I'm therefore looking to extract emails from existing mailboxes on a
server operated by an ISP provider that also provides website hosting using fetchmail.

How do I set fetchmail up to ensure that these mails still get passed through
the filters etc (i.e. reach postfix through the regular smtpd on port 25) ?

Would getmail be the better option ?

I'd be gratefull if you had any ideas for this.

Thanks in advance
