I have suse 10.1. How do I get only new messages with fetchmail ? I put the "no fetchmail" option in the /etc/fetchmailrc file, but it doesn't help : I still get all (new and old) the messages in my mailbox, and I only want the new ones ! Can someone help me ?
I set it up using the mail transfer agent in yast control center. Whenever I change the protocol in "mail transfer agent" from AUTO to POP3 or the other way around the file /etc/fetchmailrc changes accordingly (~/.fetchmailrc doesn't change accordingly , curiously), so I figured it uses fetchmail, isn't it ?
I connect to the internet(it's a fiberlink connection so it's set up using dsl ) using two network connections eth1( phisical nic ) and dsl0 ( which I created ). I set up "mail transfer agent" in yast using the same info that I use in windows (Outlook).
"How does outllok fit in ? " - sorry I don't understand this question.
I'm pulling messages from the mail server of my ISP and I use the same info which I use in windows (outlook) to do it.
So what I want is fecthmail or any other mail service process to pull only my new messsages from the server.
