You have to tell fetchmail to process local delivery through procmail 
and in procmail put in filter rules that parse based on some header(s), 
via which you can determine which local user the pieces of email to 
deliver.

Just be careful that you do not put in mail looping.  In other words 
test your configuration with various scenario based test cases before 
putting it into production.
