Using with remote email server

Hi guys, I didn't know where to report/ask this. Actually I've installed Trac on one server but I have my mail server in another (remote). Is possible to use this plugin in this situation?

Thanks in advance.

I'm using the following fetchmail command (from Cron) to fetch e-mail from a POP3 mailbox:

fetchmail --protocol POP3 --port 110 --user [mailaccount] --mda "mail2trac -p /path/to/trac/environment"
