Ok, I'm going to reply here, because the rest of the replies are of course on 
my laptop upstairs and I'm too lazy to go up there and boot it up and transfer 
the mail here. Another reason I guess I should be using IMAP. LOL

Anyway, LOL. Here's how I have it setup so far. I have fetchmail retrieving my 
mail with POP3, because AT&T as far as I know only uses POP, so fetchmail 
retrieves my mail and puts it in /var/spool/mail/david.

My question is, basically all I need to do is configure fetchmail? or postfix? 
to start putting the mail in an IMAP folder instead of /var/spool/mail/david. 
Is my logic correct?

I already have IMAP running and listening:
david at buddy:~$ netstat -l | grep imap
tcp        0      0 *:imaps                 *:*                     LISTEN
tcp        0      0 *:imap2                 *:*                     LISTEN

All I really need to do Is from what I have read, put my mail into folders 
that are used for IMAP and not POP.
