fetchmail collects email from a pop3 (and other protocols) server, and
deposits it in the unix mail spools.

squirrelmail is front end for the unix mail spools, among others IIRC.

Sorry, I know nothing about OE. (rant deleted)

I don't know - it should just work.  I have found that accessing the
mail with a local (to the server) mail client removes that email from
the spool (and places it in /home/user/mail????).

If you need multiple remote email clients then I strongly suggest IMAP,
however OE will probably take issue with that too (rant withheld).
