What I'm doing is something that you might find useful.

I have a server at home (Linux debian also).
With fetchmail I grab all the mails from my different account and sort 
them to different users with the use of simple procmail rule and 
sb_filter.py. (The users are me, my girlfriend, and spam)

Then my server is also a POP3 server. So at work I'm retrieving only the 
"me" user and when  I'm back home I look at the spam user mail.

Yes it is working if  the windows and unix PC have the same  "best" 
database format.
