I've installed courier imap and fetchmail so that I can retrieve messages from a pop3 account on my web host's server and view them from any client that can connect ...

The fetchmail daemon appears to be running on startup as
ps -ef | grep fetchmail
fetchma 1378 1 0 10:42 ? 00:00:00 /usr/bin/fetchmail -f /etc/fetchmailrc --syslog -i /var/mail/.fetchmail-UIDL-cache
The problem I'm having is that rather than delivering my messages to ~/Maildir/new directory with a file name similar to 1140574518.1738.myserver.com:2,ST, messages are being delivered to ~/Maildir with file names similar to msg.EEMG. And this, in turn, causes my mail client not to pick them up.
Additionally, all the messages delivered to ~/Maildir also seem to be getting concatenated into 1 big file at /var/mail/fetchmail.
I don't think this is the problem, but here is my fetchmailrc:
set daemon 300 poll mail.example.com proto pop3 user "remoteuser" password "passwd", is "localuser" here mda "/usr/bin/procmail";
Not sure if this is related or not but I'm not sure Exim is working properly. When I try to send a test message by:
# mail -s "test message" myuser test [enter] ^D [enter]
I'm guessing I have a problem with a configuration file somewhere but can't seem to find what to check. Any direction would be greatly appreciated.
