That means you send ALL mail from your POP3-boxes to the Account
"mailman" at your home server (which is, AFAIS, the "mailman" site
That is quite probably NOT what you want.

The mail is sent to mailman at localhost, because that is what you told
fetchmail to do - but it SHOULD be sent to your-list at localhost; and
there will be mail that should be sent to your-list-request at localhost
and so on.

On *which* list?
You sent all mail to the list "mailman at localhost". Mailman cannot
guess where you want your mail to go - you'll have to send it there.
If you have a list named "tom", you'll have that mail to be sent to
"tom at localhost", NOT "mailman at localhost".
