Default Fetchmail as MTA and what is for MDA?

Hello Linux Guru's

I recently tried to install Centos 5 to our new branch, it serves as a firewall with squid services and mail relay client for 5 mail users,

We have a mail server in head office that has a qmail services for adding and editing mail clients.

The problem is.... I don't know the next step in configuring the Centos after I finished the fetchmail configuration, the /root/.fetcmailrc looks fine and really it does grab mails in our head office but it does not deliver mails to the 5 mail users in the local network, the mails can onlly be viewed in the webmin with its yahoo-like mail interface under the Sendmail Settings, somebody told me that I should configure the postfix or sendmail but Iam really confused on which one.

please can somebody help me.

Did you configure /etc/fetchmailrc for each of the five recipients? This tutorial might give you the idea: http://www.howtoforge.com/debian_etch_fetchmail
