Please explain what you mean by "local accounts".

If I'm not mistaken from reading your reply, this implies one of two

    1. That I have two IMAP servers, one where I get all my mail, and a
       second one where I push mail after I have filtered/archived it.
       The first one should only by used by fetchmail, the second one is
       read by my various IMAP MUAs.

    2. That I somehow have write access to the backend of my IMAP
       server, so I can pull all the mail from INBOX, do my
       archiving/filtering, and then repush to various folders and read
       from there.

Is that correct?
