The client side of fetchmail will (by default) feed each message into your
local MTA for delivery, but you'll have to figure a way to get the mail into it
from the remote mailbox without IMAP or POP services (which I don't think
master provides).  I think someone was working on ETRN recently, which is also
supported by fetchmail...
