Do they all have to run their own instance of fetchmail?

Yes and no.
Yes they do and no its done via crontab.
I was in the assumption that one should not run fetchmail from cron.
If you want to fetch it regularly, use the "-d 1500" option, so that
fetchmail runs as a deamon.

One of the problems one )might_ encounter, when using cron, is that you
have the risc that one is started up, before the previous has finished,
while this is avoided by using the daemon option from fetchmail.
