I use Postfix with Dovecot and Fetchmail to harvest email from  GMail,
as well as send it. You mentioned that you did not need SMTP services.
Personally, I would loose Procmail. It is a memory hog, and Dovecot
with sieve is a better proposition IMHO.

I am not sure what you are exactly looking for; however, using
virtual accounts with Postfix or Postfix and Dovecot might ease your
setup problems.
