Hi all. Let me see if I have this right.
I'm using fetchmail and sendmail and they seem to work. However when i

I'm still a bit new at configuring Linux machines for mail (which is
partly why I'm using Agent), so here is what I think is supposed to
I call fetchmail which checks my POP account and downloads the mail.
Fetchmail then either (1.) places the mail in /var/spool/mail/username
or (2.) passes it to a program like "deliver" or "procmail" ? So

I've read a lot of news and docs trying to understand "what happens
when" but keep reading things that say I only need an MTA like
sendmail and a MUA like Pine. There seems to be a step in the middle
