eg.  not really tested

# grep fetchmail  /etc/rc.local

# vi  /root/.fetchmailrc
set daemon 600
set logfile /var/log/maillog

poll proto pop3
     user "shrek-m at" password "your_passowrd"
         smtpname "localuser at localhost.localdomain"  keep

poll proto imap
    user "user at" password "other_password"
        is "localuser" here
    user "user1 at" password "password"
        is "localuser1" here

# man fetchmail

if your distro provides fetchmailconf you can try it with
# fetchmailconf
