basicly what i am looking for is to be able to pick up my mail from the pop3 account as i am now and then be able to sort it all into the users mail folders on my local system acount to who the mail is for!
Relevant is the multidrop mode part. Basically what you have to do is set up emailadresses or aliases for the users that receive mails via that pop account.
also who do i idealy need to run the fetchmail script as? i am running it as my self on my syetm should this be run by root or someone if i am to sort it to all the users?
As far as I know, it can be run by anyone since all it does is get the mails from the remote system (any user can do that) and hand them over to your mta (anyuser should be able to do that again). On my System, I have a fetchmail user and the fetchmail script is started at boot time with that user. Only that user and root of course can read the fetchmail.conf for security Reasons.
I don't have a multidrop mailbox though, so I don't know if the suse documentation works.
Hope that helped a little.
