Why not read the mutt manual?

But, if you are going to use fetchmail/procmail to retrieve your mail,
why do you need to mess with mutt's pop settings?  Sounds like trouble
to me.

None, except for some expected connection failures in your fetchmail log
file when not VPN-ed.  Note that I do this all of the time with my
laptop.  I even get the extra bonus of perverse pleasure when my
co-workers complain about Outlook.  Sorry for the digression, but I
couldn't resist... ;,)

It depends on your setup.
