If the messages are going to different accounts on the mail server, you can
have multiple entries in your .fetchmailrc of the form "user foo there is bar
here".  If they're all going to the same account, you'll need to use procmail
or exim (or whatever) filters to divide them up.

Whoever runs it.  The default install of fetchmail does not run
