Is there a way to have OS X Lion server pick up mails and distribute them among it's local users? I have a catch-all mailbox at the provider and am looking for a little program that could check every 5 minutes for new mails and then distribute them to its local users.

Due to the fact that the server is behind a dynamic IP, I want to grab all the mails centralized and distribute them locally.

I know such programs exist for MS Exchange-Server scenarios, but I can't seem to find any for OS X...

Maybe there is a unix command line tool that does it as well?

Thanks for any help.
