I'd rather use an IMAP server on the central server : imap is made for keeping
the mailboxes centrally and consulting them remotely. Thus your mail stays on
the servers, but you can treat it from your laptop as well.

I have a similar setting, with courier imap, and procmail delivering to the
underlying maildir. But when I find time I'll investigate maildrop as mail
delivery agent with filtering capabilities.
