To use procmail as the mda with fetchmail add the line 
mda "/usr/bin/procmail -d %T"
to your .fetchmailrc at the end of the poll statement for the particular
account, then you can just run fetchmail, or as I do you can run
fetchmail as a daemon by issuing -d and the amount of seconds you want
fetchmail to check, you can also have fetchmail report to syslog with
the --syslog option to consolidate your logs :)
