I guess I need a POP or IMAP server running, so my question is, which server should I install to access the emails that will be put into a maildir format, and how is it configured to accept connections locally only?

I don't think you need to bother with POP or IMAP. It appears Icedove
has an account type called "movemail" that you can point to

Personally, I use good old /usr/bin/mail for this purpose.
