Pine fetching old email

I'm using pine to retrieve mail through pop3.

Whenever I have new mail, I usually read it then mark it for deletion. I leave the folder and it asks me if I wanted to delete the messages, and I respond "Y". The next time I open the inbox, however, the same messages are still there and marked "N", for "New". I assume this is a problem with pine not deleting messages from the server? Also, when I read messages they aren't always moved to the "real-mail" folder as I configured pine to do. Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong?
