postfix + cyrus + fetchmail

I’m trying to setup postfix and cyrus imap.

Postfix works fine I can send mail to everybody in my domain and to the “outside” world.

Sending mail from the imap server to the internet works also fine.

The problems arise when I retrieve email with fetchmail . The email are not visible within the imap store.

I see in the maillog that the messages are coming in but not delivered properly to the right mailbox ( aliases are setup )

Did anybody had this problem before and knows the solution ?
Or how to move to the "next level"



PS I’m running RH 6.1 with kernel 2.4.17
Imap 4 v 2.0.9

After I fetchmail, I use procmail to sort and deliver to the proper mailboxes.

# Common e-mail tools
sendmail - postfix - sends mail to local users (and internet when configured correctly)
fetchmail - gets mail from internet accounts (non-Hotmail type)
procmail - sorts and delivers into separate mailboxes
mutt - mail client that sucks less than all the others

Gotmail, a utility to download mail from Hotmail type accounts
