Another utility to completely do away with cywin, if you dont want to use it at all.  Note, I haven't tried mpop.

If you need Cygwin just to run fetchmail, you might be interested in
mpop <> . It is a small POP3 client that
does not require Cygwin. The configuration is very similar to msmtp's,
because both programs share a lot of source code (I wrote mpop, too).

A configuration similar to the following should work for you:
--- mpoprc.txt
account default
user mlambers
password ***
tls on
tls_starttls off
delivery mbox c:\path\to\your\mailbox
keep on

This way, you do not need to run procmail at all (though you could do
it, using "delivery mda c:\path\to\procmail.exe -d your_user_name").
A Cygwin environment is therefore not necessary.

mpop supports maildir folders, too, but this feature is unfortunately
not yet ported to Windows systems.
