    Fetchmail problem. Keeps downloading the same mail
    Im having a problem with my Fetchmail. When i run the program it keeps fetching the same mail everytime. My fetchmailrc looks like this: ------------------------------------------------------------------ #set daemon 600 #set logfile /home/username/fetchmail.log poll "mail.server.com" protocol POP3 user "NAME" pass "PASSWORD" is "USERNAME" here # ssl # fetchall keep # no rewrite mda "/usr/bin/procmail -f %F -d %T" ------------------------------------------------------------------ I know if im not using keep it will work but i want to use it, it must be a way so fetchmail knows which mail it already has been fetching?

    Im having a problem with my Fetchmail.

    When i run the program it keeps fetching the same mail everytime.

    My fetchmailrc looks like this:
    ------------------------------------------------------------------
    #set daemon 600
    #set logfile /home/username/fetchmail.log

    poll "mail.server.com" protocol POP3
    user "NAME" pass "PASSWORD" is "USERNAME" here
    # ssl
    # fetchall
    keep
    # no rewrite
    mda "/usr/bin/procmail -f %F -d %T"
    ------------------------------------------------------------------

    I know if im not using keep it will work but i want to use it, it must be a way so fetchmail knows which mail it already has been fetching?
