fetchmail problem


I'm trying to set mutt up to download my emails, only new ones, and leave them in the box. The problem is, it leaves them in my email account but it downloads emails I have already downloaded before this. I.e. I have sent the email "testing4" from a different account to the one that mutt is set for. When I use fetchmail to download my emails, and I end up with 2 "testing4" emails. However, the one email is still in my account like it should be. Is it downloading it again because I have not read it in that account? That is the only thing I can think of.

These are the fetchmail lines in my .muttrc file:
Code:
#run fetchmail by hitting key of G
macro index G "!fetchmail -k -m 'procmail -d %T'\r"
macro pager G "!fetchmail -k -m 'procmail -d %T'\r"

Okay, the -k (keep) extension made it so that the messages would stay in the inbox online. Thus, if they were not read, they would be downloaded again. I wanted backups of my emails so I set it up to forward them to another address for storage.
