I've found the problem. The reason is that procmail doesn't create standard 
mboxes by default. One has to append the parameter -f %Name. The option-entry 
in .fetchmailrc has to be:

mda "/usr/bin/procmail -f %Name"

If the vm-folders are created with this option, vm works fine. This must be a 
known problem. I wonder that no Howto refers to it.

All the best wishes and a Happy New Year to all
