I think what you need to do is install fetchmail and then configure it to
pick up mail and deliver locally through an smtp server (eg, Exim, which
is installed by default). Then configure Exim to have your ISP's SMTP
server as a smart host to send all mail through it. That's what I used to
do when I had a similar ISP in the UK.
