Fetchmail works, i only have to make the command permanent with regular
intervals.
Procmail is installed, and had prepared maildirs.
How to get the mail that fetchmail stores in /var/mymailbox, to the
maildirs in the /home/maildir/mymailbox?

hand off the mail that fetchmail obtains to procmail instead of
delivering it to /var/mymailbox.

poll imap.gmail.com tracepolls with proto IMAP timeout 45
user '<user-name>@gmail.com' there with password '<password>' is
'<useer>' here options fetchall stripcr ssl sslcertck
mda '/usr/bin/procmail'


then configure procmail to deliver it to local mailboxes

DEFAULT="/home/<user>/mail/INBOX/" ## for maildir
## remove trailing "/" for mbox
