fetchmail


I have configured fetchmail in RedHat 7.2 to fetch mails from internet server for multiple pop3 accounts.
The problem is when I specify 'options keep' in the .fetchmailrc for certain accounts. It downloads all the messages again (old and new). i.e. it dowloads the messages which were already downloaded the previous time and also the new messages. The inbox shows the same message multiple times.
I want only the new messages to be downloaded.

fetchmail systax used:
fetchamil -d 300 -L /var/log./fetchmail

.fetchmailrc syntax:
poll server.com with proto POP3
user 'abc@xyz.com' there with password 'abc123' is 'abc' here options keep

Please HELP!!!
