If I understand your question rightly, I'm pretty sure fetchmail *will*
do this.
With fetchmail's configuration, you can specify that mail from a
particular remote POP mailbox goes to a particular local user.
That local user can then POP the mail from your machine if you're
running a POP server, of course.

Personally, I have fetchmail running in daemon mode, checking several
different remote POP boxes and handing off to exim to deliver to the
appropriate local user(s).

Maybe take a look through fetchmail's manpage, paying particular
attention to the "Configuration Examples" section.
