configuring fetchmail, exim and mutt for remote access

Roberto Sanchez & others,

"Setup mutt on the machine and ssh in when
you are travelling."

It works as you outline.
POP3 server, is on machine P.
fetchmail, exim, mutt and ssh are on home machine, H.
ssh is on mobile machine M.

Also, thanks for explaining why the MAC 
address can not not identify H to the world.

I wonder about streamlining even further.
Ie., run exim and mutt, or other MUA, on M 
with M-exim communicating with H-exim by SMTP 
tunnelled in TLS.  A message would travel 

   POP3    in TLS
P =====> H ======> M-exim ===> M-MUA

Any chance of this working?  Any tips on 
configuring it before I waste too many 
hours ... or days?

Thanks,     ... Peter E.
