[fetchmail/procmail] downloading some messages from the server

Hey all,
i just switched to using fetchmail, procmail and mutt for my email, since that way i can check it from everywhere, but i ran into this problem.

I am subscribed to debian-user, and i get a bunch of emails from them a day, and i want to delete those messages from the server, but leave my personal messages on the server, so i don't loose them in case something happens.

i filter debian-user to ~/mail/debian-user using procmail, but I'm not sure how to go about this

Any information would be highly appreciated.
