Right; that's what I do:

        protocol        pop3    port 995;
        mda             "/home/smb/bin/filtmail %F";
        sslfingerprint "71:79:2F:D6:93:36:35:ED:1B:25:EE:02:E3:58:B2:0B";=

with bin/filtmail like this:

$ cat bin/filtmail

echo `date` $* >>~smb/.fetchmail-fromlog
/usr/pkg/bin/procmail /home/smb/.procmailrc
exit 0
