I really don't know. Since my remote email account doesn't match my
local account, I have to tell fetchmail to rewrite the header using
poll <remote server> with proto POP3 and options no dns
user "<pop account name>" there with password "<password>" is \
<local account name> here options fetchall mimedecode warnings 3600
If the original To: header is correct for your local machine, I really
don't see why it wouldn't work like you want it to. However, I'm far
from being an expert on fetchmail (or mail in general for that matter),
so perhaps someone else on the list can kick in here with more info.

... a Texas district court has just now ruled that the Second Amendment
protects an individual right, not a collective right. Hooray for the judge!
This matter has always seemed perfectly clear, but there are those who will
keep on arguing about it, apparently forever.
