I thin that is 100% dependent on mail client. I think all the mail 
clients use pop or imap and such, but then use their own transport and 
storage mechanism. Modest only downloads headers and then downloads the 
body when requested.

I don't think it's impossible, but as a device for consumers, I would 
assume that it is unlikely to work using fetchmail, ever, out of the 
box. It's more of a work station rather than a server, I think.
