By default, Fetchmail will put your mail wherever $MAIL points to.
Usually this is in a file named /var/mail/username, where username is
your login name.
$ echo $LOGNAME
$ echo $MAIL
And by default, Mutt will look in the same place, as per muttrc(5):
If your spool mailbox is in a non-default place where Mutt can-
not find it, you can specify its location with this variable.
Mutt will automatically set this variable to the value of the
environment variable $MAIL if it is not set.
I use Fetchmail, Procmail, SpamAssassin, Mutt and Postfix quite
successfully here. :-)
