Sounds like you have messages in your queue marked as old. if you use
fetchmail -k it will download the message but not delete it from the queue,
is this what has happened? fetchmail -a will get everything whether its old
or new. Check your .fetchmailrc file to see what options you are running
with, it should default to downloading everything.
Does anyone know what the hell this means
