help really confused and chasing my tail

all i want to do is setup mandrake 10.1 proxy server (which is working fine) to also act as a mail server to collect mail from a pop box which receives all my websites mail. Next i want client machines (windows and outlook express) to collect their mail from the linux mail server.
at present have it collecting mail from pop box using fetchmail/postfix and it puts it all in /var/spool/mail folder , i have xtra users setup but i cant get it to separate the mail to the correct mailbox,
has anyone ever done this and can anyone point me in the right direction as i have spent way to much time trying to get this sorted with only a head ache to show for it and dont want to resort to a windows based easy fix
linux newbie and getting very frustrated

fetchmail should be able to sort the remote mail to the appropriate local users I believe...

Vpopmail ( would be something to allow your users to access their mail via POP.

PS. A more descriptive subject for your posts will get more answers. Something like "fetchmail sorting and pop access to mandrake server"
