Default Fetchmail retrieval configuration on the clients side

On my fedora 10 server I have configured Fetchmail Retrieval using webmin and it seems to be working fine. Here if the output of the check servers from the webmin of the Fetchmail:

Checking Servers

Checking for mail on server(s) with command fetchmail -v -f '/etc/fetchmailrc' -m '10.0.0.5' ..

.. checking complete

Now my problem is how do I configure the fetchmail to deliver mail to clients desktops. I have two email users one with Windows XP mail client Microsoft outlook express and the other one with fedora 10 evaluotion. What are the necessary configuration should be done on the clients pc to receive or get the mails that has been download by fetchmail server.
