You're fine just using Fetchmail - after that, IMHO, you're overcomplicating it with 
maildrop :)

I do fetchmail like so:
/usr/local/bin/fetchmail -s -f /home/root/fetchmail/fetchmail2.rc

where fetcmail2.rc contains:
poll mail.com.com proto POP3 user "username" pass "password" smtpname [EMAIL 
PROTECTED] fetchall

Basically grab anything from the remote user's mailbox and redirect it via smtp 
to '[EMAIL PROTECTED]'.   Then your SMTP setup takes care of the delivery as if all 
emails came in to your localuser originally.
