well, I do not use imap myself, but this is from man fetchmailrc:
... -S <hosts> | --smtphost <hosts>
(Keyword: smtp[host]) Specify a hunt list of hosts to forward
mail to (one or more hostnames, comma-separated). Hosts are
tried in list order; the first one that is up becomes the for-
warding target for the current run. Normally, `localhost' is
added to the end of the list as an invisible default. However,
when using Kerberos authentication, the FQDN of the machine run-
ning fetchmail is added to the end of the list as an invisible
default. Each hostname may have a port number following the host
name. The port number is separated from the host name by a
slash; the default port is 25 (or ``smtp'' under IPv6). If you
specify an absolute pathname (beginning with a /), it will be
interpreted as the name of a UNIX socket accepting LMTP connec-
tions (such as is supported by the Cyrus IMAP daemon) Example:
This option can be used with ODMR, and will make fetchmail a
relay between the ODMR server and SMTP or LMTP receiver.
