Pine config, Kmail, Mandrake 10.0

I finally reinstalled my main system, which was running RedHat 7.3. I installed Mandrake 10.0, and it is OK.

But I used to have this setup that I can't seem to replicate:

- cronjob running fetchmail to consolidate emails from a few accounts to my local account.
- pine was my main mail reader, and I could ssh into the machine remotely to check mail as well.

It was all running smootly on my old system, but I can't seem to get it set up on my new one.

- pine can send mail no problem, and I can see my old (saved) emails fine. But I can't see any new emails that come in.

I am pretty sure that it has to do with Postfix and the difference in the way it stores files. In my home directory, I have .Mail/, which contains:
210937409342348 (individual messages)

I am guessing these are from Kmail though, because I tried running it to see if thing were working. Pine looks for a file, but I don't think that my emails are stored in a single file anymore. They used to go into the file /var/spool/mail/<username>

Fetchmail seems to pull messages down, but I don't know where they are going. (although it seems much much slower than it did before)

This is just very frustrating, and I feel like I am trying to solve a multi-variable problem. I have used Linux since Redhat 6.x days, as you can tell since I was replacing a 7.3 system. It is hard feeling like a newbie again with Linux, even though I have been using it for several years.
