how to set diff fetchmail settings for different users?

I've setup a local mail server.
Local Mail Server : Uses sendmail & fetchmail.
crontab entry: */5 * * * * /usr/bin/fetchmail -K
Currently i've created .fetchmailrc file under /root & entered the username & password of each user which has to be popped. But now i need to tweak fetchmail settings in such a way that i want to retain few persons mails in the remote server while fetching the actual mails for other users.

How can i set .fetchmailrc file to be more user specific settings?
