You sound exactly like me.  The configuration is identical on the Linux system.

Two questions:

1) have you tried courier-pop?  It provides a POP3 interface to the maildirs -
though I presume you're restricted to using the top level folder.

2) fetchmail connecting to RBL?  Really?  That's OT for here, but I'd be
interested in knowing how you do that, off-list.  I have fetchmail proxying
through popfile, which does a good job of trapping spam, but it doesn't reject
it before download.
