The best way to set this up, which has nothing to do with Emacspeak, is to
configure fetchmail to retrieve all of your e-mail via POP3 or IMAP from your
various accounts. Set up Fetchmail to deliver the mail via a mail transfer
agent such as Exim, Postfix or Sendmail, using Procmail as the local delivery
agent. Write a ~/.procmailrc file to filter incoming mail into various folders
as you wish. Spam filtering can be either configured in the mail transfer
agent or as part of your Procmail rules, using anti-spam software such as
Spamassassin or DSpam.

The end result is that all of your mail, from various sources, is
autoamtically filtered and delivered into appropriate local folders which you
can read with your favourite mail reading software. VM works particularly well
under Emacspeak.

If you have any difficulty setting this up, I suggest subscribing to a Linux
administration mailing list or joining your local Linux users' group.
