Look into fetchmail. It grabs e-mail from remote servers and delivers
it to a local mailbox. Thus running it through whatever filters you

Looks like you want to run the UW-IMAP server which has a pop
component. RH and others have UW-IMAP as a package which works well
enough. (though you might just want to run a full out IMAP server for
centralized backup and stuff...)

I went the fetchmail route to POP for awhile, then went to fetchmail to
IMAP on my own mailserver. Works great, and you can do the whole
webmail thing too.
