Yup, this is my (redacted) fetchmailrc file:

    proto pop3
    set invisible

  poll server1 via mail.server1.net
    user remote_user1 is localuser1 here
    password hahahahaha

  poll server2 via pop.server2.com
    user remote_user2 is localuser2 here
    password hahahahaha

  poll server3 via mail.server3.net
    user remote_user3 is localuser3 here
    password hahahahahaha

This polls from 3 different servers and stores the results in 3 different
mailboxes on my local machine.

  % fetchmail
  fetchmail: No mail for remote_user1 at server1
  fetchmail: No mail for remote_user2 at server2
  fetchmail: No mail for remote_user3 at server3
