If your mailserver also supports IMAP, you may give

Fetchmail will pull your email from mailserver and it can deliver it to MUA, in 
your case procmail or simply to the mailbox/maildir. Procmail will help you with 
filtering and additional modifications of your emails.

So answer is yes, you can use fetchmail and later set up your procmail rules.
