I don't follow your post. Are you saying that if you connect a mail client to your imap server that you see all messages? Isn't this what you'd expect? What do you want to see happen?

I assume you are using POP?

Are you sure you haven't specified the -keep option either at the command level or in fetchmailrc?

yes it fatching from pop

this is how my fetchmailrc looks:
Code:
set daemon 150
set no syslog
set logfile /var/log/fetchmail.log
poll "server" protocol pop3
    username "mail" with password "pass" is "user" here keep
    username "mail2" with password "pass2" is "user2" here keep
mimedecode

# SOME USEFUL OPTIONS
# keep - Don't delete seen messages from server
# no keep - Delete seen messages from server (default)
# fetchall - Fetch all messages whether seen or not
# no fetchall - Retrieve only new messages (default)
i know "no" keep would solve the problem but user wants to keep mail also on pop account
