would it be possible to add an option to just download only the new mails from IMAP server by still leaving all the new and old mails on the server?.

This should work already. Just switch on the "Leave messages on server".

when checking for new mail, iScribe fetches all the mails once again from server and populates all the mails once again in Inbox (double entries in Inbox after second check).

so how to make it to fetch only new mails from server?.

28/07/2005 3:59am yes its checked for leave messages on the server. hence, the messages are there in server. is this the reason for fetching again all the messages?. if so, how to fetch only new mails from server? (by still leaving messages on the server).

28/07/2005 4:07am This would normally work fine. There must be something different about your setup, I gather your using test10?

Maybe it's something to do with AOL's mail server. If the unique ID's of the messages are only valid for a session at a time then you'd get this sort of problem. But I'm pretty sure AOL would make that mistake.

Ok, sounds like a bug. I've opened a bug about the issue so that we can keep track of it.
