Fetcgmail problem
hi again
i was wondering how can i set my fetchmail
not to fetch all the mail
but the mail that is new
discarding the mail that was already been fetched

you can use nofetchall option with poll.

Btw, it is the default option if nothing else like fetchall or keep is specified.

yes ofcourse, you can use keep for not to delete messages from server, and alongwith you can use nofetchall to fetch only newer messages

for more details about options see man page, man pages are our friends in need
