Your sendmail or other MTA is probably setup correctly out-of-the-box.
You just have to get your mail sent to procmail.

The easiest way is make a .forward file like this in your home directory.

I think fetchmail is cool, btw, and is a good example of software that
does one thing and does is very, very well.
