Description

18 years ago
I have exclusively used 5.0 on my machine for all my mail needs, using POP3,
since 12/2. Until now 'delete from POP server' was turned off, but as of today
has been switched on. As a consequence I got all ~2500 messages once again
downloaded to my machine, even though Mail 5 should have preserved the
'watermark' of previosly downloaded messages.

This is fixed along fixing bug 22129. We failed to generate X-UIDL: header for
each pop3 message when leave on server. Unfortunately, we cannot retrofit
previous messages what have been downloaded. So, you might still get duplicate
messages one more time. If you start with a new profile you shouldn't have this
problem.

I tested the POP server on all platforms using 2000-05-01 and with pref to 
delete msgs from server checked and unchecked.  Messages that were deleted 
locally as well as the server were not retrieved again in the same profile or a 
newly created profile.  Verified.  Please reopen if you find another scenario.
