You can use procmail, or, if you have different accounts, you can say "foo
there is bar here", etc. (as I remember it), or look in the fetchmail man
page for "multidrop", a technique which seems to imitate basic procmail
functionality useful for sorting incoming mail by recipient.

Sure, getting an ISP that supports ETRN would work too, but is probably
not necessary. If you have your own domain, you could get the ISP to set
up virtual users for you with sendmail, but again, it's probably not
necessary, since procmail could do just about everything you want.

What do you mean by "accept mail from them"? Do you mean forward it on their
behalf, receive messages originating from them, or something else?
